There was a time when Oliver's was a place where you could get consistently very good food. Their duck was the best around. The time before this visit, the duck was dry and quite tasteless. Not sure what happened there, but we have shied away since then.
We dined out with friends the other night (they chose the restaurant) and although the service was good, the food was about average. Some people in our party had the Lobster Pie, an old recipe from the Cape Half house days. They all said it tasted very good, but there were an awful lot of crumb topping in the dish, rather than lobster for the price. One person in our party left most of their salad, so I'm not sure what was going on there.
I had the smothered burrito and it tasted just fine, but I have to agree with some of the other contributors, it just doesn't seem the same.
Maybe a big menu change is in order, not sure, but Oliver's is just another restaurant now. Too bad, a few years back it was a must and would have rated an "Excellent".
