Went here previously for a wonderful dinner. This time, not so great but they did correct the wrong. Had the flaming cheese, olives and feta, pita bread, Greek salad and the Lemmon pepper sole. All were great but the Lemmon pepper sole. It was so salty it was inedible. They did take it back and replaced with a nicely done... More

This is a nice diner that doesnt seem to get as much traffic as it deserves. The server and owner were very nice and willing to provide excellent service. The Gyros are really good.

Have driven past this place a number of time and finally stopped. I was pleasantly surprised! Ordered the blackened sole . This is primarily a Greek place. The order came with a Greek Salad, which was generous with lots of Feta cheese. The sole was absolutely delicious. Not over cooked and blackened with just the right amount of seasoning. It... More

Decided to try the Olive Tree this morning. Found similar atmosphere to most Crystal River restaurants. Desperately in need of a good cleaning. I can't figure out why so many restaurants don't put any time into cleaning their respective establishments. The service as with most eateries in the area is terrific. The food ranges from good to very good. But... More

We decided to go for the Greek salad and lemon chicken soup. After sampling it my son decided to have a bowl and my daughter fished her cup aswell. Greek salad dressing, dolmados and feta were home made. Lara an excellent server and Pablo a hands on chef. Our pork chops, cinnamon carrots and chicken Zora entrees were better than... More

My family ate lunch here after swimming with the manatees. We were starving, and The Olive Tree did not disappoint. My husband and I both had gyros, which were delicious. We would definitely return here if we were in Crystal River again.

...if you like Greek food. Wife and I had Gyros. I got the "Deluxe" w small Greek salad and fries and there was enough of both to split. Salad was excellent. Loved the fine (I think grated) mild feta on it. The tomatoes almost tasted home grown and the kalamata olives were outstanding. Dressing was fresh and not too "vinegary"...... More

I really like this restaurant, but they seem to have been having issues, lately. We stopped in for breakfast. I was very disappointed in the order of French toast. It was very small and thin. My husband had sausage gravy and biscuits which were fine.

I am a local and eat at Olive Tree regularly. May 2016, they have been closing at 3pm 7 days a week. The food is fresh and cooked as you like it. Portions are large and tasty. Comfortable atmosphere. It is inexpensive, especially if you consider the Senior and Military discounts. Remember to ask for the discounts.

We loved this place for Greek food for dinner. Now they close after lunch. Therefore, any previous praise for this restaurant by me is revoked. Their appeal was dinner.
