The restaurant is not too far off the hwy. it is housed in a building that looks like a small inn. It has a lot of ambiance and the service was excellent. Prices are reasonable, especially for those used to mid Atlantic big city prices. My beau had the pork chop which he enjoyed very much. I had the chicken... More

We done out regularly, and as such, our expectations for atmosphere and food quality are pretty high. The Wild Olive met both, and start to finish this was a great dining experience. The host was friendly, and our waiter (Chris) was outstanding. The decor and finishes in the restaurant were quaint and charming, and reflected a love of family and... More

My daughter took me here for lunch and loved the quaint atmosphere. The food was freshly prepared and good, even though we just had a chicken salad. She has eaten here many times and says it is the go to place in Crestview to have a good meal and service and and good place to take friends.

The service and atmosphere were top notch! Food was good, a bit over priced for what you got, but very well seasoned. Dessert is the best part! Amazing desert choices and you can't go wrong with any of them!

Crestview's 5 Star Restaurant. We usually go to celebrate special events in the evenings, but their lunch specials are very good. We especially like sitting ouside in nice weather, as the main room tends to get noisey when there is a big crowd. Wonderful selection of homemade desserts, great steak, and seafood. You can also bring your own wine and... More

This is a small restaurant but has a great atmosphere. Reservations needed Friday and Saturday night. They always have different specials and a variety of things to try. The Wild Olive can be hard to find if you are not familiar with Crestview but worth asking about. I have been with family at night and friends during day.
