Not a bad plan since they do such a good job supporting the local community and Idaho State Athletics. They are really a nice place with nice people.

Having Oliver's recommended to us by a few people we decided to give this diner a chance. We were greeted warmly and seated promptly. Although it was Friday night and about a half an hour before the scheduled closing, the food server and others made it very clear that we were welcome. We were waited on by a young woman... More

We liked the warm, diner-y look of Oliver's exterior so we went in to this pleasant place that was obviously patronized by a lot of locals. The service was cheerful and efficient and the food was first-class - I had a giant blueberry muffin and my hubby had a breakfast plate that was overflowing - he especially liked the homefries...

The food is not bad here...I like the salads ecspecially...but the environment is disgusting. I remember shivering the first time i walked into the dump. If a clean, well lit place is your thing, avoid this place like you would the local, rat infested dump. What ever you do, do not bring a date here, you wont get any action... More

This place is a mom and pop type diner that seemed like a bit of a dive when we got there. We went on the recommendation of family for their burgers. The burgers are really incredible. A great value, good service and a wonderful time.

Food is diner quality. This place could easily be on Restaurant Impossible. Needs to be updated, needs to be cleaned and food quality improved.

Very diversified menu. My daughter in law and I had the fish sandwich with tots for lunch. Very tasty. Have eaten breakfast here also before and enjoyed it very much. Prices are mid range. Would eat here again.

Another Diner in the area that has great wait staff and food was delicious. We had breakfast for dinner and found it to be the best we had while in Pocatello.

We had breakfast here and the food was good and filling. The service was fast and friendly. The omelet I had was filled with cheese and sausage and the hash browns were perfect. It's a good place to chill and watch cars go by while chatting with friends. This is not an upscale place if that's what you are looking... More
