Last Sunday, my cousin's birthday, we decided to dine at an old favorite. This would be a HUGE mistake at best! Many uneventful things happened during our meal. Forgotten apps, Being ignored (no refills offered or given on drinks), and the epitome of the evening..walking in he kitchen to look for a Manager that had been requested but a no... More

Our family visited the place once before and it was a great experience. This time we got together for a reunion/ birthday/ aniversary celebration and we all got sick. Somebody ought to check that kitchen staff!!!. We spit up all the way home.

Okay, it was four of us and my husband and I hadn't been there before. Our friends raved about this place and thought we would like it as well. We didn't. My husband's Eggplant Parmesan was tasteless and way too chewy. He even had trouble cutting bite-size portions with his knife. I had Blackened Chicken Santorini. It was entirely too... More

Staff is very nice, food was very good. Happy hour is a little loud. Take out food is what you order, even with the extras.

Traveling through the area, 9:00 at night, ended up at The Olive Branch. Unlimited breadsticks and salad combined with huge portions - and very low prices! Not gourmet, but overall-very good experience

This had been a nice restaurant with reasonable prices and nice food, BUT it has taken a turn down! Oddly, just as they eliminated the small coupons that they used to flood local magazines with, they reduced the quality of their food. Crab cakes are still meaty, but no taste; crab soup has hardly a bit of crab and spaghetti... More

Went here as it was across the street from our hotel. Not fancy by Ny means. Basic table settings and service was okay. Italian based menu, moderate amount of choices. Prices are fair market for this area. Some specials daily. All meals come with unlimited salad and basic white bread hot rolls. I choose today's special of shrimp and beef... More

It's a good place to eat. Not the olive garden but nice. I prefer cheesecake factory at Towson mall or pf changs, but this area is cramped and uninviting.

The Olive Branch been there for a long time and I never been until yesterday. I went with my Fiancé, he told me that a friend of his said it was a nice place and their crab cakes are good. When we got there, there was no parking spots close to the restaurant, it's a motel attached to it so... More
