I wanted a quick bite for dinner... and this was slower than that. Waitress took forever to get my order... charged extra for a cheese substitution on my bacon cheese burger. Alaskan amber was a great choice of draft! Atmosphere was not very special.

They had a varied menu. Not high on ambiance but food was good. We met there for a late lunch and business meeting. at 1:00. Moderately busy when we got there but nice and quiet to have our meeting by 1:30.

Fat Olive's popped up while I was reviewing a couple of other Richland establishments and it's been awhile since we've eaten there but we used to treat ourselves at Fat Olive's. We love the antipasto, best olive tapenade I've had, never been disappointed by the pizza and save room for dessert. A little spendy and the atmosphere is nothing special,... More

We had dinner here on our way to the Nixon Frost play. The wine list is excellent, wines from our local area some known , some unknown. The food was fresh, flavorful and nicely presented. They served us efficiently and we got to the play on time.
