To motivate kids to finish their dinners, mothers often remind them that Santa is watching, only to discover the appetite-stifling effects of living in a panoptical Orwellian nightmare.

The Olive Tree sates appetites with a menu chock-full of authentic Italian and Greek dishes. Pairs or quartets can start dinner with a bang by nibbling on saganaki, hot kaseri cheese doused in brandy and set afire tableside to instill wonder in passing neanderthals. Culinary tours can continue with Grecian plaki, oven-baked white fish topped with tomatoes, onions, and feta cheese. To construct the Olive Tree lasagna, chefs follow a family recipe, layering seasoned ground beef with ricotta, cottage, and mozzarella cheeses, and these same morsel maestros bake breaded veal and eggplant under a golden blanket of marinara sauce and cheese to create the veal romano. Patrons can play hide-and-seek with sautéed shrimp and noodles in the shrimp scampi or incisor-attack a marinated and chargrilled chicken filet. Each entree accompanies salad, garlic rolls, and a certificate of achievement.
Menus may vary by location.
Olive Tree Greek & Italian Cuisine
Visitors at any of Olive Tree Greek & Italian Cuisine’s three locations bask in the tantalizing aroma of garlic drifting from the kitchen, which bustles with a lineup of expert chefs. Seated at a cozy table, guests dig into an array of traditional Greek and Italian dishes, taking alternating bites of veal parmesan and grecian scallops. And their mouth-watering Maryland crab cakes come from a special family recipe that was perfected at their sister restaurant Olive Grove in Maryland. Hosting outdoor dining, the Villa Rica restaurant shelters patrons beneath an awning-protected patio, and the Hiram location houses them in a quaint brick terrace flanked by lattices and the tendrils of hanging plants, which often sneak bites of baked pasta over diners' shoulders. The Hiram location further entertains the senses with live music during dinner on Fridays and Saturdays. At all three locations, patrons can wash down savory bites with wine, draft beer, and specialty cocktails from the full bar, and can request takeout or catering for special events and weddings.
