If I am going "Italian", I always go here, before I would go to the other places. The food is good, and so is the service. It is a all round good place to eat, and it seems like a well kept secret. They usually have a "chief special", and that is what I lean toward. They now have "Maryland... More

Their Greek Salad with grilled chicken is fabulous. They make their own house dressing which is good. Food is not cheap, but reasonable for what you receive.

Good food and excellent service. Their crab cakes are the best anywhere. They have great seafood selections with traditional Italian food.

I have been a number of times and they have never disappointed. Last time I ate there the special was Lamb Osso Bucco over pasta! Very delicious and the price was low teens. Paired it with a great wine and had a cannoli and cappuccino for dessert. If you re near the area (near six flags) this is definitely worth... More

Food and service superb. Husband had the gyro plate and I had the Tour of Greece. Both were excellent and filling. No room for dessert. But they looked good. Will definitely be a favorite when we're in town.

I keep coming back to the Olive Tree for 3 reasons; great food, price and service. They have Italian and Greek food. I've tried most everything on the menu and it's all good. They even have really good crab cakes. They have a good selection of wine and beer.

This restaurant has it all, great food, great service, and great a atmosphere. The only reason I visit this restaurant is for the Greek Favorites. They are so good! However, I wish the portions were not so big. My husband and I struggle to eat one entrée. Because of this dilemma, I've tried over dishes, and even though they are... More

Everything about this dinner experience was horrible. The service was slow, the waitress was completely disorganized, could not follow up on simple requests. Took over an hour to get our checks sorted out. She lost one diner's credit cards. The food was slow and only luke warm when served. One dinner was so cold the person could not eat it.... More

We were exhausted after spending all day packing and loading furniture, etc., to move our son home from Atlanta. We were totally unfamiliar with this part of Georgia but really needed to eat and relax for a bit. We pulled off I-20 at Exit 44 and just happened upon this restaurant. We were so glad that we made that decision.... More
