I was in the area and stopped for lunch. I ordered poutine and their fried chicken thinking I could take the leftovers home. My waitress was friendly enough. The poutine came out fast and the fries and gravy were decent but the curds weren’t melted...More

Has a big beer selection. The mixed drinks were not that strong at all. It is kinda loud in there. But the food is good and worth the price.

We came for lunch and had a great server who recommended us great dishes. The chilaquiles was good, maybe a little heavy on the onion but it wasn’t an issue. The poutine is fantastic, it’s a nice place.

Held a business lunch at the Olympic. Food selection was surprisingly diverse and reasonably priced. Plenty of parking. Much larger on inside that I suspected just driving by. Excellent service and reasonable prices. Quiet enough to hold a business discussion.

Quaint old tavern with excellent food choices. They will serve your lamb as rare as you like, the scallops were scrumptious, and the salads were awe-inspiring. Date had the taco salad, which was huge! Enough for two more meals. I had the chicken almond salad...More
