Saw the sign on the highway, so we stopped. Local family restaurant. Very good food, with inexpensive prices. We had the all you can eat broasted chicken, which was very good. Waitress was very friendly. We didn't try anything else, but I assume their standard diner style food would be good. Would definitely come back again

One of those local places that serves you a cup of soup with your meal. Pretty good beef and vegetable soup, actually. Tried the ribs and chicken with breasted potatoes. Didn't realize until they came out that they were beef ribs, but they were good, and pretty tender for beef ribs. The chicken was good too. Good service and very... More

We visited Olivia's late on a Sunday morning. The place was full but the wait time was very short. Relatively neat and clean with friendly and fast service. There is a buffet and people seamed very happy with it. We chose to order off the menu which is wide & varied. All four of us were happy with the favor,... More

We used to eat here quite often, however, in the last six months, very inconsistent. Poor quality, not hot or not done correctly. The food just seems to be of poor quality.

Food was fine for breakfast, confused waitress don't know what her mind was on. Was busy talking with locals to find out that she gave me a green tea instead of a black tea and she never asked which one I wanted. There is no big hurry for your food here.

At 11:20 on a Sunday our party of five was instantaneously seated by the hostess. Immediately the waitress came by with water and to take beverage orders. Two of us opted for the $9.99 breakfast buffet and the others ordered off the menu. The buffet was a pretty typical one, except all the food was served at appropriate temps. Hot... More
