Oliver's reminds me of an old fashioned diner from 40+ years ago - counter seating, booths in the front, and more formal table settings in the back room. The wait staff was very friendly, responsive and attentive. I had the vegetarian Garden Burger Dinner. Even though the menu listed two patties, I still somehow envisioned them in the middle of...

I've tried Olivers a couple times. I can appreciate any kind of dingy hidden gem, but this place is just dingy. The coffee is almost intolerable, the service has always been bad and I've never had a good meal there. Don't get me wrong, Iam not saying I've never had a "really good" meal there. I literally mean I've never... More

Stopped for lunch on way through, looking for exactly this kind of place. Full of locals, counter jammed with older men drinking coffee and talking on a Sunday. Ordered Rueben sandwich on rue. Their homemade bread melts on your mouth. Coffee cup filled over and over. Nice place, good menu, very good value.

Place where the locals eat. Fresh baked bread in several different flavors, sourdough, rye, wheat and white. The smeill of it baking adds to your hunger. The servers are very very friendly. First time coming here. Our son brought us and we were very happy. Fast service! Prices average. Good coffee!

We enjoy our food EVERY time we dine at Oliver's. Each item is made fresh, which we never mind waiting for. You must try Oliver's when you have the time--breakfast lunch or dinner!

on our way trough Idaho, we stopped for dinner in Pocatello, asked our way to a decent restaurant and we ended up at Oliver's. Everything else was just fast-food, what's going on in a university town? Service was nice and helpful, the food was less than mediocre, the corn looked old and not very appealing, the steak was edible. Our... More

After our sons soccer game we (4 of us) decided to stop & eat. We had to wait to order & then it took a ridiculous amount of time for our food to come. A group of 3 came in after we placed our order & got their food and eaten 1/2 of it before our food even came. The... More

Oliver's was one of my go to places to eat, but not after last night. My wife and I had prime rib that was 70 percent fat and looked like the dogs breakfast. Service is always slow but last night was a joke. We started to exchange newspapers with the folks at the table next to us in order to... More
