New owners took over the Olive Branch a while back. Under previous ownership I used to go there just to get appetizers and drinks or an entire meal and drinks. They had martini's, fabulous sangria, amazing pasta, chicken pesto sandwiches, great lasagna, real cheesecake etc etc. Once the new owners look over the place went downhill fast! 3 friends and I went for drinks and apps about 6 months ago.. we got nachos (they were okay, no major complaints), one friend wanted the cheese cake.. only to find out it was "no-bake" cheesecake. They did not have fancy drinks any more.. we were given the option of beer, wine or vodka with pop. We all agreed we would never go back (even though we live in a small town with not many dinner options).
I decided to try out the restaurant once more this week.. we were the only ones in the restaurant (start to finish of meal), it was so cold in there we had to keep our winter jackets and scarfs on the entire time! We couldn't order ceaser salad because they had no lettuce, the entrees were about $20 per meal, $4.99 extra if you want to add chicken. the garlic bread was good but you couldn't really taste the garlic.. the pasta (fettuccine alfredo) was okay but I could easily make a better dish at home from a bottle of sauce, chicken breast and maybe throw in some fresh mushrooms or broccoli! I like to support local business but this place is just horrible now.
They are also just randomly closed at supper hour.. They base their work days on whether or not they have a large enough lunch crowd.. so sometimes they won't even open for dinner. If you are visiting Sackville, I would recommend you try Joey's pizza.. it's a sit down restaurant with lots of variety.. or even go to pizza delight.. they have lots of variety as well (even if you are not in the mood for pizza!)
