Waitress was rude and food was even worse. Soup over cooked and tasteless. Stuffed. Pepper special was lukewarm at best and came with gray "mixed vegetables" that were cooked to death. All of the food was served at once, not in stages. Open faced gyro was ok but served with iceberg lettuce "Greek salad" that tasted like the refrigerator. Definitely off the list.

Our server, Michelle, was a delight; very friendly and efficient. We were immediately greeted and seated quickly.

Ordered the cinnamon/raisin pancakes...very fluffy and delicious pancakes. MUCH better than eating at IHOP.

Great prices and great service. I would definitely suggest having breakfast here. They also serve all day breakfast.

The food was good and the staff honest. We somehow lost our credit card here and did not notice it was gone until we were in another city already. We called to see if they had found it, and the owner had it safely with him. They kept it for us until we returned to town and could retrieve it . What a relief it was to have such an honest staff and owner find our card. The food was good too and large portions at a terrific price. We had the salmon special and it came with soup, bread, potato or rice and it only cost $9.99. We will definitely dine here again when we are in the area.

Decided to give this restaurant a try when we drove by it. We were so glad we did. It's a great place. The menu is extensive and includes all kinds of food at very reasonable prices. Our food was fresh and delicious. Restaurant is very clean and staff was friendly and efficient. We are from Canada but will definitely go back to Olympic on our next visit.

Highly recommend Olympic Restaurant.

My husband and I ate here before our flight back to NC. We like Greek food and it looked like a local favorite (from the parking lot) so I ordered one of the lunch specials -- stuffed grape leaves. I have eaten far better Greek food at a food court in a mall. I would almost bet they came out of a can. My husband's choice was no better. His "salad" was a small plate of iceberg lettuce with a few carrot shreds. The lemon chicken soup was okay and the bread was very good but the rest of the meal was terrible.

Our waitress was new and seemed scared to death to do her job. Knew nothing about the menu.

They had good traffic so I guess we must have ordered the wrong menu items but if we lived in Buffalo, that would have been 2 trips in one -- 1st and last!
