My friends like it but I'm not a big fan!

I have been there 4 times with friends, never overly impressed with the food. Not really to my liking but my friends seem to enjoy it. The hamburgers are pretty good, too big to fit in your mouth.

Seafood diavolo, chicken, mashed potatoes yummy pulled Grecian pork. We had awesome Greek dessert walnut cake and baklava. It's great ambiance and I love the decor. The crowd is so great as well.

After spending 3 hrs in a car dealership, we left extremely tired & hungry. Decided to stop at the first place we found to eat dinner. Walked into a Cafe looking resturant to find a cute quaint greek restuarant. The food was amazing, the service top notch. We were expecting an ordinary meal & were surprised with an impressive gourmet... More

The Olive Tree is a very simple restaurant, with seating at banquettes arranged in booths, more in the style of a café. It is a family-owned and family-run restaurant. It's owned by a Greek family and several of their daughters and nieces work here as waitresses. The service is charming, efficient and very friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. I... More

My mother and I headed for Olive Tree for lunch when I visited a couple of weeks ago. She loved the hamburger; I was all over the gyro...nice lunch, great server from Athens (we had a nice conversation about the souvlaki guy in Monastiraki in Athens)...nice people, good food, and never made it to the lunch buffet...maybe next time!!!!

I've only had the lunch buffet a few times here, so not sure what menu items would be like. Yes, they do have a lunch buffet. But it's not much. Mainly salad stuff (Potato, bean, greens, etc) and a couple of grilled veggies. Some pizza. They do have usually have 2-3 meat entrees thou. Examples include Greek Pulled Pork, Pesto?... More

As Downingtown residents, we have eaten here several times, and always been pleased. Last night was no exception. We brought our favorite red wine and were met at the door by Lauren, who has given us excellent service on other visits. She artfully and fully described several specials for the evening, then proceeded to do our bidding with customary good... More
