I ordered the turkey dinner and cant explain how disappointed I was. The turkey came out in chunks, not slices and I would venture to guess that it comes from a can, or at the very least a log roll of meat. The gravy was pastey and obviously made from a package and tasted of preservatives, as did the meat... More

If you want a no frills, old fashioned delicious meal, go to Oliver's. Really, mostly homemade food that is delicious. There is nothing on the menu I wouldn't recommend.

This is a diner that reminds you of the past and it is great! Breakfast was good and the staff friendly as ever. It is nice to eat at a place that supports the community in many ways.

The food is very good, and the service is great. It is older but you can always depend on good, home cooked meals.

We ate here in a hurry one night. The food was okay but the place could use some new décor and maybe a little cleaning up. The staff were friendly, the food was hot when served. Probably would not go back.

Not a bad plan since they do such a good job supporting the local community and Idaho State Athletics. They are really a nice place with nice people.

Having Oliver's recommended to us by a few people we decided to give this diner a chance. We were greeted warmly and seated promptly. Although it was Friday night and about a half an hour before the scheduled closing, the food server and others made it very clear that we were welcome. We were waited on by a young woman... More

We liked the warm, diner-y look of Oliver's exterior so we went in to this pleasant place that was obviously patronized by a lot of locals. The service was cheerful and efficient and the food was first-class - I had a giant blueberry muffin and my hubby had a breakfast plate that was overflowing - he especially liked the homefries...

The food is not bad here...I like the salads ecspecially...but the environment is disgusting. I remember shivering the first time i walked into the dump. If a clean, well lit place is your thing, avoid this place like you would the local, rat infested dump. What ever you do, do not bring a date here, you wont get any action... More
