I can always count on good, simple, wholesome food at The Olympian. Everything is cooked to order, reasonably priced, and satisfying. Servers are fun and experienced and you won't break the bank. I just wish they were open later in the evening.

The Olympian is a Braintree-favorite for breakfast goers. The food is good and plentiful, the service is good and the prices are very reasonable. The only downfall: not a lot of parking nearby.

My wife and I had the chicken shish-ka-bob pita sandwich. It's a heaping plate of grilled, perfectly seasoned, chicken with a fresh Greek salad. Loved it. Followed it up with a slice of old fashioned Boston cream pie. Heaven. There's a full breakfast menu and plenty of choices for lunch and dinner. The restaurant is noisy and lively like a... More

A very good breakfast at a reasonable price, this is what a Diner should be about. And the service was muy fast. My wife had been in cancer treatment for a month and was craving a diner breakfast- this was a perfect fit.

I visited Olympian Diner last evening and ordered the fried claims for $14.95. I was amazed at how many they gave me with full bellies. Also, the cold slaw was delicious without too much mayonnaise. . . just the way I like it. I was there around 6pm and not crowded at all.

My husband and I had a very good breakfast here. The French toast was super tasty, not too overly sweet, and just the right portion. My husband had gotten the pancakes and I snagged a bite...very very yummy. Location is pretty accessible with the red line, buses, and there's street parking too.

This place is usually very very busy. Sometimes, it's hard to find a seat. However, it's worth the wait. They have a large menu and will readily make breakfast or lunch anytime of day. A small dinner, friendly staff and good food. A very popular local spot.

The atmosphere is very basic no frills small town resaurant attended mostly by locals.It is by far the best value and quality of food over a number of high end resaurants that I have experienced in the past. Always cooked to perfection and unbeatable service.
