I think they are good but not like they used to be. The prime rib on Thursday used to be real good but now they are thinner than they used to be.

It seem as if ALOT of restaurants are not putting alot of effort into what they serve people. Less quality for more money....

Olympic is a great place to eat. Restaurants have to go up on the prices due to vendors going up on their prices. If we as owners were to raise the prices across the board as we are handed and pass it to the consumers in this county then we would all be closed down. Consumers here in this town do not all support the local businesses. Therefore, some businesses have to make shortcuts to hanging on to what ever we can to survive. It doesn't make sense that our locals will go to a neighboring county and pay even higher prices for the exact same item and quality but we do. We need to offer reasons to the owners as to what and how to improve instead of just not going back.

I've seen many roaches there along with many flys flying around me while I eat. My steak is never cooked right, and my potatoe is always cold. The management sucks, and the waitresses are horrible. I've heard the waitresses many of times just standing in the kitchen gossiping when my tea was empty even the ice was melted. I haven't been in olympic in months and I probably wont ever go back. I'd rather go to emilys, and pay the outrageous prices and get good service there than go to Olympic and pay the same price for bad service.

Last time we ate there, the medium well steak had blood run all over the plate, we got no bread, and the iced tea was warm with no ice. Haven't been back. The time before that, the waitress poured tea on my son. Not a fun time.

My family and I have eaten at this place several times. I have never seen bugs - THANK GOD - but I dont dispute that their may be some there.
We have, however experienced some very bad service in the past. My daughter and i chose to give it one more shot last night. We had to park in the back of the parking lot there were so many people there and we had to stand in line that went all the way out to the parking lot before we could be seated. We almost left but to our suprise the line went quickly and our service was awesome. Our food was not cooked to the way we normally would like it but it was still good. We will def be going back!

guest 001,I don't really like Olympic but if you go to Emilys you just as well go eat in a pig pen,that place is nasty, just look at that carpet and the dirty chairs and the last time and I do mean the last time I ate there I saw roaches going up the wall by my table, couldn't finish my meal, me and my husband had to leave. When May had it the food was much better and they did try to keep it clean. P.S. Just do like we do and go out of town to eat out, sad but true.

The Steak House has been in Ripley 20+ years and still packs the house twice aday on most days. It can't be that bad.
Much love for Pete and the employees.

guest001----------I know who you are and I honestly believe you could not rub 2-quarters together very often. I will tell everyone that you do not work and live off TV lawyers with lawsuits and anytype of welfare you are your family can swindle. Hey, get off topix with your smoke since I for one know you and find you BOGUS in all aspects of our life.

Well this is not in Ripley, but, it is in Covington. They are building an Applebees Restutant right in front of Walmart. I live in ripley but do all my shopping out of town. Ripley don't have anyplace good to shop at or a place worth eating at. Can't wait til they get the Applebees open I'll be looking forward to going to the one in Covington instead of driving to the one in Dyersburg.

I enjoy taking my family to Olympic but the service is usually mediocre to bad. I've taken my empty glass of over twenty minutes to the hostess for a refill right after opening for lunch one day while the servers were gossiping behind their station. I've only had one bad meal but the server took care of it, thankfully. Overall, I like the place. Just prefer take out. I mean that salad bar is AMAZING!!

If you think the salad bar is amazing, apparently you've never had Ruby Tuesdays salad bar! That's amazing! Oh and if your a person that doesn't tip. They probably know this and won't give you good service.Why would they give you good service if they know you don't tip?

just who are the crackhead employees you are talking about? The day shift is the same ones there that may had idiot! Also there are new younger ones who are pretty at night. So maybe you havent been there since she took over. As far as the bugs go have been there almost everyday and have not seen the first one, maybe you are some idoit trash she has fired for theft. hmmm maybe so
