This place was recommended to us by a neighbor. My husband and I both got seafood - he got the fisherman's platter and I got the cod fingers. We both got the salad bar. The fries we're from frozen; I don't know if the cod was, but it had very little flavor in the batter. I liked the baked potato.... More

There was four of us for lunch. My husband and I shared the Hungry Man Seafood Platter. He also got onion rings and I got the salad bar. All the seafood was fried and rather small. The onion rings were very good. The salad bar was average but limited in the items on it. No fruit or soup on the... More

They take reservations, even "in season". Wide variety of items on the menu. Salad bar is always fresh and restocked before getting low. Wait staff friendly, and service is good, as is the food.

This was a delightful surprise. The food is quite good and the prices are most reasonable. Can be crowded after church on Sunday, but don't let that keep you from going.

Visited for dinner on a Friday evening. It was packed with seniors, presumably visiting for the winter as were we. After a short sIt we were seated and a pleasant waitress took our drink orders immediately. Two for one beers and we'll drinks on Friday evenings! We started from with the salad bar with the standard greens and salad veggies... More

Stopped by for a late lunch and had a Gyro. The apparently have homemade hummus, but were out of it, sorry I missed that. Was seated immediately, service was quick, attentive, courteous but not invasive. Food was uniformly excellent, and it was a nice touch that they brought a small pitcher of iced tea. Would definitely come here again if... More

We went to the Olympic this past week for the first time this season. We both ordered burgers, which were excellent. I Had the SouthWest burger with a side of onion rings. My spouse had the Swiss Bacon Burger with a side of Veggies Of The Day. Burgers were $9.99 each and the patties were quite large. Coffee was a... More

The Olympic is a north Highlands county mainstay. The salad bar is fantastic and there are daily specials that offer some different flavors in addition to the normal menu. On this particular visit, I got the gyro for lunch along with the salad bar, and I wasn't disappointed. The gyro was fresh tasting and full of flavor. There is enough... More

We eat often at this popular restaurant in Avon Park, FL. We enjoy having lunch at the Olympic because they have a wonderful Reuben Sandwich. More often than not, we are please with our dinner selections but I was disappointed with their fried oysters because they have too much coating on them and are fried a little hard. But, we... More
