“Liked it better last year.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2008

I went to Oliver's on 2007 and had two good meals. This summer we went back but were quite disappointed. There were some new changes to the restaurant and also to the menu. Last year the menu had more variation compared this year. This summer they have more stone oven entrees . The salad was all lettuce with no cucumbers and 2 quarter pieces of tomatoes - for 2.99 we were expecting abit more. To my surprise the waitress told us that was the recipe for the salad make up. We sent back the steam clams since they were about 4 inches in width.
We also changed our seats since the noise from the kitchen was a continous pounding of the meat - according to the waitress will stop in a little while!! She did move us without any big deal.

Wish they just changed the decor but not the menu :(
