The wait staff was outstanding. I know food matters, but the hostess and waitress set the tone for our lunch. Yes, go with the house dressing. It is great, and they sell it for a reason! My party had everything from gyros to crab cakes to grilled fish. Everyone was happy and very pleased with the quality and quantity of... More

This place looks un-impressive from the outside, but don't judge a book by it's cover. Service was prompt and courteous, the menu is extremely varied with something for everyone. Food was served quickly and it was very good. From large salads, to baked spaghetti, to gyros, to shrimp skewers over grilled vegetables this was a great business lunch. Would definitely... More

The Olive Tree Greek and Italian Restaurant is an oasis in the food desert stretch of Lithia Springs. Among rows reanimated flash-frozen foods and chain restaurants, lays the Olive Tree Greek and Italian Restaurant. They offer friendly service and delicious made-from-scratch favorites from Lasagna, Chicken Parmesan and Souvlaki. Almost every main entree comes with a salad and the much raved... More

This is a favorite destination for my business colleagues in Lithia Springs and I've eaten here on several occasions. The service is always prompt, the restaurant is always busy, the quality is good and prices are reasonable. I ordered eggplant parmesan along with my colleague and we had an enjoyable meal. It's nice to have a locally owned restaurant option... More

My husband and I stopped in for lunch on a Thursday. The restaurant wasn't very crowded. There were two things during our visit that we felt were above average- one was our waitress, Grace. She was friendly, attentive, very helpful when answering questions. The other thing we found above average was the Greek salad dressing. My husband ordered the Greek... More

Ok limited Greek/ Italian offerings. Our server was very nice, but the food was nothing to write home about.

This is a family friendly, supper terrific place to eat. My husband and I along with our two grandgirls (ages 10 and 6) went for a nice dinner on our last night of vacation. The server was very friendly and chatted with us about our day at Six Flags. She took time with the girls to make sure she prepared... More

We wanted some Italian food and tried this place while visiting. The "chef" had no idea what he was doing. I order the scallops and my husband had the salmon and nothing there is fresh. The serivice was ok but not worth it for the price. Don't recommend it.

I've been meaning to try this restaurant for years because I love Greek food. I ordered to go a falafel wrap with greek potatoes. After two bites of the falafel I was disappointed. The texture of the falafel was good but it was absolutely tasteless. The falafel wrap at Great Wraps has way more flavor. Their greek potatoes are essentially... More

The place has a look, from the outside, that you may just want to drive by. We stayed at the Holiday Inn that is literally in the same parking lot. A hotel staff recommended the place. You would think youd' get a discount staying at the hotel, but they didn't offer any. It's much nicer once inside. It was a... More
