My husband and I eat here frequently, either breakfast or dinner. It is a no frills diner with comfort food, but it's also quick and good. We can have a decent breakfast for under $20.00 and for dinner I go for the seafood which is always fresh. The fried shrimp is a generous portion as is the fish and chips.... More

I have been going to the Braintree diner for over 30 years at both locations. I always recommended it. Tried to get a new generation to see the merit in home style- moderately priced usually good meals. The waitresses usually ignore me , never bring me bread unless I ask, even though they would try to avoid eye contact with... More

I frequent this place at east once a week. Food is good, but portions are getting smaller, wait staff is getting nastier, and prices are getting higher. Need I say more.

It is a nice small family restaurant in town. They have great meals. Just a warning they take cash only but have an ATM.

There aren't many places left where you can get home cooked meals at an affordable price. The Olympian Diner is the perfect place to go for a wonderful meal. This family owned and operated restaurant offers an extensive menu with breakfast offerings, sandwiches and dinners. Everything looks so good it's hard to choose. I ordered the lamb shish-kebob sandwich with... More

After reading reviews about this little restaurant, I was expecting something a little out of the ordinary. Instead, it was just a small local diner across the street from a Rite-Aid with below-average quality of food. We went early, before the breakfast crowds, and the table we sat at had crumbs of food on the seats and table which we... More

Plenty of good food and great service. There is always a great list if specials and the food is just great simple comfort food. Breakfast is served all day and night with huge portions and an excellent bargain price point. Cash is accepted only and there is usually a line to wait for a booth. I would highly recommend the...

Almost diagonally accross the street is the Olympian, it had parking and I decided that was going to be my breakfast stop. I had a great, homemade breakfast at a ridiculously low price. Coffee was...

Second time here this week. My daughter loved the French Toast. I loved the three egg omlette. Coffee excellent. Then the price of this great food, on the cheap side. Very good breakfast, and great value. We would come back on our trips to Boston.
