Great food

Food was great. Nice progression of courses - maybe a little too slow. Not for a romantic dinner though. One crying baby sporadically through the entire meal, families with loud children. Very friendly staff. Shrimp picata was great. Does seem excessive to pay $2.00 if you want a Caesar salad... read more

Got there for an early dinner on 7/22/15. The greeter (Ms. Tandy) was very friendly and professional. She also waited on us. She recommended the special (her recipe idea) and it did not disappoint. The chicken and fried green beans were delicious. Owner should use more of Ms.Tandy's suggestions and recipes.

Huge portions. All very tasty. Keep refilling drinks until you are fit to burst with both food and drinks. Get a take out box.

I thoroughly enjoyed my meal at this restaurant. Driving down Thornton it is easy to miss them as they share a building with another business and have a closed restaurant right next door. I stayed at the Holiday Inn next door and they were highly recommended by the desk for "Italian Food". They also give a discount to guests. The... More

Our hotel recommended this as one of the best places to eat in Lithia Springs....they weren't wrong. Garlic/butter/parmesan rolls, home made lasagna, and fast and friendly service. Me and my two sons enjoyed our meal immensely. Decor is nothing special, but the food is worth the visit!!!!!

I had lunch here with some business colleagues. The restaurant is a classic small Greek/Italian family restaurant. The decor is nice...nothing fancy but clean and simple. The dishes are Greek and Italian inspired...the salads, Gyro plates, sandwiches and pasta dishes were all very good. Efficient, friendly service. A good value. I'll return!

One of my friends had that, and the other friend and I had the Greek Tour, which consisted of Gyro meat and chicken with pita bread, grape leaves,... More

White tablecloths are under glass top. They do not clean them. The side of the cloth had dried sauce spilled. Food was average but the place was dark and dingy. Never went back.

The Olive Tree was very quiet and quaint. Although located on busy Thornton Road, I believe it's a hidden gem. You walk in and you feel safe and comfortable. We were greeted immediately and with a smile, sat at the little bar to review the menu and sipped on a drink while waiting for the take out order. We were... More

Went to this restaurant because it was closest to the hotel and we were hungry and greek food sounded good. Small restaurant, not really a lot of pomp and circumstance, but the food was awesome. I had the grilled veggies and fish-phenomenal tasting. I didn't have any, but the desserts looked amazing as well as every other persons plate that... More
