I went with a large family group, and we still had been able to snag a great outdoor table. (Yes, with reservations - but I had had my own reservations about the feasability of this, if you follow me!) Get the linguine with clams, either as an entree or as a starter (what a nice touch). And thank you for... More

Were here for dinner on a late September Friday night. Waited about 15 minutes for a table. Always love the atmosphere here: casual, friendly crowd, historic, dark wood, owner Marcia Felber's paintings adorn the walls. (I am in LOVE with the cat painting on the wall near the bar). The butternut squash bruschetta app was delicious and we both had... More

Service and food were very good, being Watch Hill with snobs galore and parking a commodity did not take away from a pleasant experience.

Stopped in to the Olympia Tea Room on Sept. 12, 2014 for a late lunch. They had a brand new menu for Fall and was pleasantly surprised by how great everything was. Very well made cocktails; had salads for starters- very fresh and nicely dressed. We split the fish and chips which can be ho-hum, but not here. So good!!... More

We come here whenever we come to Rhode Island. The room is beautiful, the booths easily big enough for 3 or 4... Lots of locals, with the owner floating around and greeting all of us, even though it wasn't a weekend. My husband had the special half lobster with beans, corn and brussels sprouts... Gorgeous on the plate, fabulously good!... More

The clam chowder was delicious and my friend was pleased with her seared tuna dish. I complained about the greens that accompanied my scrod sandwich. They were wilted and dry. All they needed was a refreshing rinse and spin! The dressing was uninspired. Our waiter was very obliging. I would go there again, but it's the luck of the draw.

We have been going here for years, but this past year we had several experiences where the food, the drinks and the service have all gone downhill. Read a few of the other recent reviews - I see those of us who have been going here for years are noticing the difference. The whole experience here used to be very... More

My last experience at the Olympia Tea Room was really fun, great service, delicious food, and a lot of ambience. Just perusing the wine list and being seated at the appointed time was enough to start everything off on the right foot, to say nothing of the fact that everyone loved what they ordered. My compliments to the owners and... More
