We had a great experience at Fat Olive's. It was a Monday night, but it was still busy. My only complaint is that the waitress was overworked. But she still did a good job. We had 2 different kinds of pizza, beer, and probably the best spinach salad I've ever eaten. The pizza's come in 12 and 18 inch. The... More

They have awesome food and it is generally quiet. There is not usually a wait and their pizza special of the day is great. A slice is like nothing you have ever seen... It is about a third of a whole 16" pizza. Definitely try it if you're looking for something solid. They have a pretty decent wine selection as... More

Note: The recent reviews for this restaurant listed here should probably be listed under the Fat Olives Restaurant located (not too far away) in Richland, WA. The Kennewick location was at one time a second Fat Olives Restaurant, but the owners revised the menu and re-opend it as the Kennewick City Grill which closed, maybe a year ago. The location...

Striking a balance in the food service/hospitality business is hard. Atmosphere, qualtiy, price, service all have to be in alignment for an establishment to be considered "there". Fat Olives isn't quite "there". The location is so-so, but that is never really a deal breaker with us. The food quality is good, but the price/value ratio seems to be off. $5... More

Sandwiches are large. The slice of pizza (with salad) appeared exceptional value -- but the slice is practically a small pizza so it may overwhelm you

On the urging of my wife, I visited there, and was I very disappointed. The food was good, but very uninspired. And quite expensive for what you got. I was there with my brother, and both of us felt the same way, it was okay, but expensive and crowded. We visited early on a weekday, and thankfully, we were ahead... More

Not a great atmosphere, but good food. Had the steak and shrimp kabobs that were great. The service was a little slow, but met some special needs on food restrictions.

Too expensive for what you get. There are too many great restaraunts in the Tri-Cities to go somewhere that gives you average quality food with small portions for top dollar.
