Never been impressed with it

Never been impressed with this place however bc Lindsay severely lacks places to go out for lunch in the downtown core, we get stuck going there but always leave with the question of ''why '' and ''when will we learn?'' Service is great if you're a friend of the staff if not, expect mediocre service like your were at that cousins house that you really don't want to be at for the holiday dinner. Food is ok, nothing to write home about. Patio is nice but on a Sunday during the summer why is this place not open as not all of us work straight business hours and you should see some of the tourists that go by try to open the door to see a puzzled look of '' why are they closed '' Yeah not much to say, ok food and bc of the lack of option you end up going. This place would do well if it treated all their customers like family and cater to the entire town as well as tourists.

Don't really get "the buzz"?

I just don't really get it? The food was ok, that being said Greek food would never be my first choice for a meal, so maybe I'm biased. Service was fine, we were eating a bit later at night so it wasn't really busy. It was a warm night, and they had their big, garage door like thing open, but they wouldn't let us sit on the patio or near the door, we were stuffed in the back. I probably would have given a higher rating if our seating had been better. I had the Chicken Souvlaki, and my buddies both had some sort of fish dishes. It was fine, not great but not bad either.

Excellent

We were heading to Lindsay last night for the Haunted House and wanted to go out for dinner first. Looked online and found the Olympia. Decided to give it a try. We were very impressed! The food was excellent, portion sizing perfect and the service was great! We would definitely go back there if in the area again. Only drawback was we were seated by the front door and it was chilly whenever the door opened and closed. So it would have been nicer to seat in a booth but the place was very busy when we arrived.

Always a Pleasure

We first went to the Olympia when visiting a friend in Lindsay. She no longer lives there, but we go back regularly! The Spanakopita is excellent, as are the pulled pork, the eggplant dishes, and the Zeus burger. Special mention to the salads - the Greek is ordinary, but the blackboard special salads are often exceptional. The Baklava is wonderful, and the coffee is a step up from standard restaurant brew. Unless the servers are very busy, they are attentive and friendly.

Barely adequate

I had eaten here once before with reasonably good results, so invited two friends to join me for lunch. (I should note that, on my prior trip, I ordered a very simple sandwich and salad, both of which were acceptable.) One of my friends wanted the cabbage rolls, but not the cheese perogies, as he cannot eat cheese, but the waitress refused to make any substitution. It was either either cabbage rolls and perogies together – or not at all. I found this unacceptable. I offered to eat the perogies and give him my soup, which accompanied the spanikopeta. The cabbage rolls, according to my two friends, were made with very tough cabbage leaves, making them, quite frankly, hard to chew! The filling was nothing exceptional. The perogies, which would have been quite OK plain, arrived smothered in oily bacon and onions. I was unable to eat them. The soup had no flavour – essentially tomato juice with a few tortellini thrown in. The spanikopeta was acceptable, though I have had better. A rather expensive deal for extremely lackluster food.

Excellent Taste, Excellent Service

We had seen this restaurant on Trip Advisor and stopped in to give it a try. It has a nice, welcoming atmosphere. Our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable about the menu, and charming. He suggested the hummus, which according to my colleague was "the best hummus EVER" (and she eats alot of hummus). They adjusted menu items for us with no problem or fuss. The Greek salad tasted fresh and was very flavorful. The Gyro was great, and the baklava was to die for. It is important to note that one order of baklava is two pieces. I couldn't finish both, but have one in a takeaway box on standby for lunch tomorrow. I would happily eat here again and it would be my #1 recommendation in Lindsay.

Great dinner in Lindsay! Amazing Steak!!!

Went on a Friday night, place was packed! We had a drink at the bar, pretty good wine list for a Greek restaurant.Our server was really nice and looked after us professionally. My steak was amazing, our server suggested it and she was bang on!!!! My dates pasta was also very good,but too much for her. We really enjoyed our dinner for our first time here!!! Only place in Lindsay to get a great cappucino! See you again.

Think They're The Only Place In Town

This place used to be great. Has gone downhill the past few years. Always say I won't be back and keep giving them another try - then ask myself why bother. Food is still pretty good, but service is bad and to make it worse the staff has serious attitude. They are lucky there is little choice in this town.

Excellent!

I always enjoy going to the Olympia. The food is always amazing as is the service. I wouldn't want to eat out on the patio, which is right in the middle of a downtown sidewalk, but inside it's always nice and comfortable.

Who's He?

WOW!!!!! What a great place to eat at!!! Very quaint little place with quite a buzz. The only thing wrong was this guy who looked mad running around and yelling at all the wait staff, No complaints about the food though, the best steak for miles and miles, and my partner enjoyed the souvlaki sooooo much.

We ordered entirely from the blackboard specials, which had better prices and were more imaginative than anything on the printed menu. The soup was tasty, and putting lots of red pomegranate seeds in the chicken salad was a very good idea. Service was fast and friendly. Overall, this lunch was unexpectedly good, much better than the average Greek restaurant anywhere. Besides, I haven't found any other restaurant worth eating lunch at in this town.

The tsatziki was fantastic. Both lunches were very good. Salad was large, fresh and tasty. Wait staff were friendly and helpful. Baklava was large enough for 2 to share.

Great atmosphere. Friendly greeting. Bruschetta...

Great atmosphere. Friendly greeting. Bruschetta was good; a bit small for $8.00 though. Mains were fairly good although potatoes tasted dry and cool. Service was a big disappointment. Once we were finished our wine and dinner we waited 15 minutes for the server to approach our table. When he finally did he said 'cheesecake ladies?', no 'how was dinner?, would you like to see the dessert menu? would you like coffee?' When we said we were full he immediately walked away and ignored us for another 10 minutes at which time he brought the bill! Totally arrogant and unprofessional. Due to this, and only slightly average food, I won't be back.

I live in town. The food is good and the place enjoys a good reputation for it. Unfortunately, the waite staff is terrible. There is a tall waiter, I believe related to the owner, who is consistently snooty and condescending. He needs to find something else more suitable to his personality. He is a terrible waiter. The rest of the staff aren't much better except for the owner. If they had any great competition in town, they wouldn't last long. As it is, I will not go there anymore and I will not attend work events upstairs either. There are other places in town where I can enjoy an evening out.

I've been to the Olympia several times, always hoping it will be as good as it's reputation, it never is. The food is mediocre at best! I think everything is cooked from frozen. Everytime I've had a greek salad there it was awful - wilted lettuce(should there even be lettuce in a greek salad?) and tasteless. The decor is okay, a little precious, but at least it looks clean. I've also had the souvlaki, again mediocre at best. I've had a couple of other dishes there, but can't remember what, in other words, not very memorable.
