While the waitress made my red velvet cheesecake look really fancy - I would probably go for the regular cheesecake next time. But service was good as usual.

Six of us went for dinner. Plenty of off street parking. We had reservations for 6:00 on a Saturday evening and were seated promptly. Some of us had not seen each other for quite some time, so there was much talking and catching up to do, and not much ordering of food. The waitress was very courteous and did not... More

Recent business lunch at Olympic Tavern. Had many different lunch items to choose from - service was prompt and efficient. Portions were large and reasonably priced. Quiet enough to have a lunch business conversation. Road adjacent to restaurant is undergoing construction making it a bit challenging to get in & out.

Great specials during the week...Monday night is $5 hamburger plate...big, juicy & delish! They have a great selection of beer and the nicest patio in town. Road construction all around but worth it. 5 min from downtown.
