Went there for the first time and was very disappointed. The service was good but the food was not. I had a veggie omelet which was lacking veggies but loaded with a cheap cheese that did not melt . The omelet was over cooked and...More

This is our 'go to' local diner. The omelets are large and stuffed. The daily specials are homemade and absolutely delicious. There is always enough to take home for a second meal.

Good service, usually fast. Nothing too gourmet. All the breakfast basics and daily specials. Known for it's breakfast. Crystal Lake's gem.

Looking for a breakfast that is truly outstanding? The Olympic is the place to go. The skillets, omelets, and other meals cannot be matched. Come here for great service and terrific prices.

It's as good as the reviews. One person can order a smaller meal and share with other's full breakfast. There will be enough. The potatoes were so hot I had to drink ice water. What a great place!!

Located on the corner in downtown Crystal Lake. Plenty of parking. All ages and wonderful potato pancakes on weekends.Always a crowd but you will be seated quickly.
