Horrible!

The restaurant is in need of a thorough updating. It is very old and does not appear to be clean. Tables were sticky. The waitstaff is very limited, therefore, there are long waits between ordering and receiving any service. The food is below par. We will never return to this place.

First let me state that couple that was walking inside after us turned and left when they saw the inside of the place. We gave it a try. Very dated and dark, but it was mostly clean. (old ketchup bottle refilled, label pealed off) Chicken tenders for my daughter seemed fresh, white meat. My husband enjoyed his lobster. Skip the... More

Great place for reasonable price... Nice portions! Delicious lobster and scallops.. We liked it so much that we went two nights in a row. Seems to be a family run establishment.

I haven't been there for breakfast however for the last three summers it's my family lobster destination. For 12.99 around lunch to early dinner time you get rolls with butter, garden salad with your choice of dressing and a side in addition to freshest beautiful steamed just for you lobster with melted butter for a dip. Can't wait to go... More

My son spends his Summers in Yarmouth and visits this place often enough to be called a "regular". He always gets a three stack of pancakes. I have only eaten there once myself and it was good. He swears by their food and prices.

Family restaurant. Locals love this place for the value and the friendly service! Amazed that real maple syrup is served with the pancakes, no up charge. Big breakfast only $3.99!

Tried Olympia for breakfast after hearing recommendations locally. The restaurant is a candidate for a remodel – very tired, dated décor, dirty and a huge fish tank with one fish (?). Similar to other reviews – greeted promptly and seated by a man in janitor clothes. Separate waiter took the order and the food arrived quickly. You get what you... More

Upon entering, we were greeted by a lovely woman who seated us nicely - a party of six! She offered us menus and then a gentleman came by - in garb that could be construed as the janitor - however, he had pad and paper in hand and was prepared to take our order!!! Moments later a younger gentleman came... More

By Far the best Lobster place ever! We took our entire family of 8 and was given such special attention. The Lobster was excellent! We highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great dining experience! Very family friendly!

We come here at least once a year while on the Cape and Olympia still can't be beat for it's quality and service. If you're looking for a great early bird menu, try Olympia. The portions are generous and you even get a salad with your entree. The lobster deals can't be beat. The owner is on the floor making... More
