A great choice for some home cookin' 😃

We stopped here for breakfast and it was very busy. The menu offered a wide selection of "specials" and traditional fare. We opted for a couple of Portuguese sausage items that were very good. Service was friendly and efficient... The pricing is reasonable... Be aware that parking can be difficult... read more

We stopped here for breakfast and it was very busy. The menu offered a wide selection of "specials" and traditional fare. We opted for a couple of Portuguese sausage items that were very good. Service was friendly and efficient... The pricing is reasonable... Be aware that parking can be difficult at times and Olympia's is "cash only"... Enjoy... 😃

The place was super busy but we got seated quickly. Food was so good, waitresses were SO NICE!! We were in town for a Red Sox game and am so glad we found this place. After a night of beers and stadium dogs the pancakes were just what the doctor ordered. Thank you ladies and thank you Braintree Mass for... More

The food is very good and the service is excellent. The menu is extensive and if you don't see it, they will make it for you. It can get very crowded and you cannot make reservations. Great local restaurant. Parking on the side of building or street parking.

No frills diner that harkens back to when our days weren't so rushed and our schedules not so hectic. Excellent menu and service and reasonably priced. I loved the hometown feel and laid back atmosphere. Everybody knows everybody and while we were visitors we were with a local who knew half the room. The server was always at the ready... More

First time in. This place is an average small diner, though probably in the lower end of the spectrum. You walk in and seat yourself at whatever table or counter if there is space, waited about 5-minutes for a waitress, They advertise fast service?? Waitress shows up didn't even ask if we wanted coffee? Sorry I am not a local... More

First visit and new to town. Not only our waitress, but another stopped by to welcome us to the community. Our waitress took pains to explain the menu and also the lunch and dinner offerings. However, we waited for some time to even get acknowledged and coffee was brought to a table of regulars before us even though we were... More

I go to Olympian diner at least once a week and get fish for my parents. The food, although not bad, has gone downhill since the new owners took over. Which is still in the family. I guess they don't care about the business that has been here for so many years in Braintree. But, the reason why I am... More

I love this Diner. The staff is great. Service is Great. I have had the Meatloaf, roast pork, Baked Chicken and it was always good. The prices are reasonable. You always leave this diner, full. A must visit.

It's neither a fancy, sit-down restaurant nor an old-fashioned diner. Despite the name it is more of a no-nonsense cafe, with a mixture of booths, tables and chairs, and a handful of stools parked at a counter. Basic but efficient best describes it - a working man's diner, pretty well sums it up. The decor and ambience are nothing to... More

Long time Braintree resident, used to dine here at least once a week sometimes more, I do not frequent here as much, maybe once a month now. While there seafood is fresh, the other food items are fair at best. The waitress staff have no personalities, they rush around and make you feel that you have to eat and run,... More
