Veggie burger was the worst ever. Looked and tasted like a can of fancy feast cat food. Service was eeh, and its too bad because the atmosphere is pretty nice. Been there many times, and it keeps getting worse. I'm one to give places a second or even third chance, but I will not go back.

Excellent menu, from appetizers to entre's. Atmosphere is pleasant, dining roomis neat and clean. Wait staff very attentive and courteous. I ordered the "Chester Cheese Steak"; plenty of meat, right amount of cheese, could use more fries. Overall excellent meal

Oliver's has become an Essex tradition of long standing. Good place to take children as they have a menu for kids that hits the bases. Regular menu is solid fare and food is usually well prepared. Nothing extraordinary but reliably decent food.

Have eaten at Olver's a couple of times the most recent being Jan 2012. On this last trip there my wife and stopped in because of the experience we had there our last visit. We ate in the bar upstairs this time. Had the french Onion soup and a union jack burger, which is a burger on an english muffin, and both were great. service was fine. Nice stop anytime of year, but nice after a few hours of eagle watching along the Connecticut river.
