We ate at Olivers twice during this trip. The first night was excellent. Service was good and all at the table enjoyed the meals. We had the bruschetta which was the best I have had along with the lobster pie, the oysters, seafood flatbread sirloin tips and other dishes. We couldn't have asked for better. later in the week 2 of the group decided to go back. Big mistake. We shood have kept the good feeling we had., We did a call ahead for a table, arrived on time and were told we would have to wait because other people had arrived and had been seated. Tried to explain the call ahead purpose to the waitress who just didn't get it. We waited and were seated. Then we waited another 15 minutes for a server. Payback for questioning the hostess I imagine.Then we waited for our drinks, then we waited to order and when we got the food we realized we should have left at the beginning. Fish dried out and sandwich falling apart and had to be eaten with fork. Waitress never came back to check on us. We left food,paid bill and left.

My wife and I were down for the weekend so we decided to go to Oliver's. We had apps, pizza and drinks...everything was perfect. Just when we thought we were leaving, we found out there was karaoke, so we decided to stick around. The Host was very friendly, funny, and interactive, what a blast! We ended up enjoying the show until almost 1 A.M. ! Great job Mike Rock! Great Job Oliver's!! We'll be back!

We keep trying Oliver's because many of our cape friends and relatives swear by it. Our last visit may be the last, though, accompanied as it was by very mediocre "capey" (i.e., fried stuffed fish dishes) food, and an earsplitting band too near the dining room for any conversation. We probably should have eaten earlier in the evening, given the latter, before the band started and the servers were fed up. (Our own waitress was a delightful exception, however, cheerful and prompt and attentive despite the hour -- wish I could remember her name, but she was obviously more experienced and seasoned than the rest of the staff, who were much more interested in each other than in us!)
