Went before Easter Vigil Mass. The food and service were memorable. Loved the sweet potato fries, crab cake, cheese burger and salad. The premier dish, crab Olivia, can be passed. The crab is better without the sauce. The penne pasta did not sell well with my daughter. She thought the sauce tasted like the tomato soup. Arrived at 5:30 pm... More

We saw roaches at the table, staff viewed them as well.There was no acknowledgement of it like it was normal to the staff, we will never go back.

Management response:

This is a response directed to any future customers that may come across this statement, as we firmly believe the "person" that posted has some ulterior motives, although very difficult to prove in our world of technology and ability to sit behind a computer and cast such accusations. This is the most ridiculous, reckless and unfounded remark that we have... More

Every time I come in they get my order wrong or I wait two hours for food- don't go here! My husband went once and they were out of everything he wanted - took two hours for food and no apology -

We went to Olivia's for a beer/wine and a appetizer. It was great. We had a platter that had Firecracker shrimp on it. It was amazing. My husband loved the scallops. Owner was great to talk with and recommended his other restaurant Scoots BBQ which we tried. Highly recommend it as well.

This was the weekend of the Gloucester Daffodil Festival. We got to the restaurant just before a line began. The food was good & we had good service. The waitress was very nice & friendly. Would definitely eat here again.

Took my daughter for Sunday lunch and we were seated at 11:50am. A waitress seemed frazzled and the restaurant was busy finishing serving breakfast she told us. We said fine, got menus to browse. About 12:10 the manager walked around chit chatting with customers as tables were filling for lunch. He did not bother to take any orders to help... More

We ate dinner here midweek and really enjoyed it. Our waitress was friendly and helpful, the atmosphere was small town cheerful, and the food was very good! I had crab cakes, which were excellent, although served without a sauce other than cocktail sauce or tartar (both brought to table in small plastic cups) which weren't very good. The starter salads... More
