We frequent this restaurant every spring-summer season. I wish it was open through the winter. They have great food and a wonderful ambiance. The owners always change the menu each season so there is always something new to sample. We love to get a table outside and look out at the water, listen to the gulls, and enjoy the sunset....

We own a local upscale bed and breakfast that caters to guests who seek a higher level of accommodations and amenities. To enhance their stay, we recommend restaurants to suit their pallets. Olympia Tea Room is consistent in providing a great ambience and perfectly prepared food. And more importantly, I've probably sent 80 couples in 2016 and have never heard... More

I have eaten here for the past 15 years with friends, family, colleagues, and solo and it has always been consistently good, with its big open space,and bar. People watching and local, and tourist alike always welcomed.

Great food. Poor service. Cliquey. Plain and Simple. if you're part of the Olympia "Inner Circle," it's a good time. If you're not, don't even bother going. Food is good, but not worth dropping several hundred dollars for a lousy attitude.

Always took my mom here either Memorial Day or Labor Day. She couldn't get around that well but always loved seeing her grandchildren ride the carousel, eat some popcorn & then duck into the Vic for a bite to eat. All part of a glorious Watch Hill experience. No matter what yo choose to do here - tea, snacks, lunch... More

My husband and I tried to eat at this restaurant twice while in Watch Hill. The lunch we had was good, but we had a very different experience when we went back on a busy Friday night. I was 37 weeks pregnant and it was 90 degrees outside so when we learned there was a 45 minute wait we went... More

The food is magnificent, ok, really good. The bar service is excellent, detailed, and fun. Note a single negative would dare enter the doors.
