For years we visit this restaurant weekly with a group of friends. The food and the service has been consistently slipping. Lately, every visit has had a mistake in the order or a poorly prepared item. On this most recent visit. I ordered eggs, meat, toast. The eggs arrived without the meat or toast. The waitress went back to the... More

This is a long-standing restaurant on the west end of Bradenton. The Greek dishes are exceptional and, surprisingly, they have the best spaghetti sauce and meatballs around. It is always busy, clean and friendly staff.

Ask the staff what they recommend - and go with it! Our waitress (Ruth) was SPOT ON suggesting items from the menu. Our group of 4 each got something different and were all very satified.

The Olympic Cafe has not only wonderful Greek food, but many options. I particularly like the lamb shank. We were in Bradenton for a month, and ate there 3 times. The prices are very reasonable, and the service is great. And who doesn't like a glass of wine for $3.50! It can't be beat for a local restaurant. It is... More

Love going here. Even though the Olympic Cafe is about 20 miles from where we live it is definitely worth the drive over there. Best Greek food around and the portions are humongous, we share a salad and entree and are stuffed. Highly recommend the horiatiki salad, ingredients are always fresh. And the saganaki appetizer is great.

So excellent. Want to eat there everyday. Broccoli cheddar soup, chicken Alexander to die for. Very healthy, but also extreme range of food choices.

Great little place for breakfast or lunch particularly with lots of daily specials on the chalkboard. Not just Greek food but many typical American items and some Italian. Good-sized portions and reasonable prices for good, basic food. Don't forget to check out the dessert case!

Reasonable prices for authentic Greek flavors. Saganaki is always a hit with the kids and theirs is no exception. Huge portions and lots of great choices.
