“New ownership and staff - breakfast is awesome!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

This is no longer Olivia's by the Sea. It is now Olivia's at Good Harbor. They serve breakfast at 7am on Wednesdays - Sundays. The breakfast is the best around! Prime rib omelets! Bacon and caramelized onion scramblers. Fried dough! Freshly ground and brewed coffee is the best.

The service is soooo fast now! A waitress seats you, brings your drinks immediately and within a few minutes, your breakfast is served. The portions are huge and cooked just right.

I haven't tried their dinners yet but their breakfasts are something that shouldn't be missed!

“Basic food at a basic price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

New, spacious restaurant serves up New England, American food. I had a ham, eggs, toast and home-fries breakfast. It was OK, but, not anything to write home about.

“Great onion rings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

This restaurant has changed hands several times recently, but I like this version. It is very like the old, popular Amelelias. We had delicious haddock chowder, and shared a fried haddock plate and onion rings. They are hand cut and dipped and were not greasy at all. Yum.
