We drive by Oliver's every morning, early. It's small A-Frame construction with BIG picture windows across the front are dark, and there is the soft glow of some strings of Christmas lights, and in the back the emergency night lights burn away the dark morning.
We could not figure out what sort of a place it was, so we decided to go on a Friday night.
It was lit up, glowing warm and yellow and smelled delicious. Friends and family were clustered inside at the tables, and the wine was flowing...and Becky got us seated and welcomed with dry and self-deprecating humor.
She recommended a solid pinot noir that got the job done...this is not a place for you if you "need" a 3 page wine list: she concentrates on the wines that will pair well with her food.
Dinner choices were pretty "American" nice food. Sure, some of the dishes were "Italian cuisine", but it is not an Italian place. There is delicious fried chicken and mashed potatoes, there was a yummy mac and cheese, appetizers, burgers, fish and chips...
Everything looked good and tasted good.
I like places that put the emphasis into the food and friendliness, which Oliver's does.
I dislike places that cater to snootiness and major in snobbery. If your need is to be sucked up to and brown nosed by sycophantic staff, then this is NOT your place to be.
I recommend calling ahead for a reservation, and going on a night with live music.
Oliver's is what a restaurant ought to be: a place where someone's passion for food AND for eating is allowed to be expressed.
