My husband & I go the Olympian Diner at least once a week . Good variety of breakfast , lunch, dinner . Daily specials , homemade soups, chowders, good greek salads- love their dressing & feta cheese. Nice filet of haddock - fried or broiled, homemade corned beef hash, good size sandwiches.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner, you can be sure of really good food and friendly service. I take my grandson about every two weeks and we have a great time in one of the booths. The waitress is always very accommodating to both a 72 year old and a 7 year old.

Really, how hard is it to make breakfast work... and this place does a really good job. We came in toward closing time and the food was hot and ready quite quickly. Enjoyed raisin bread along with blueberry pancakes, and omelet. Service was attentive, and prices reasonable. Clean and would return,

I went back to my home town for my 50th reunion. I decided to contact my best neighborhood friends for breakfast. At least, I wanted to try to get together. Anyway, my best buddy came down from New Hampshire and my next door neighbor girls came up from Cape Cod. My sister also came. We all were more like brothers... More

Service was fast, food was excellent, the staff was friendly and down to earth. The iced coffee was good and the hash is homemade. Will be returning.

My family and I ate breakfast here after an overnight in Braintree. We read the reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. Delicious breakfast & quick attentive service. Would definitely go here again if we were back in town. Parking could be difficult. Yet I did notice that locals parked in the Riteaid lot across the street.

Thank eagertraveler09
