Love this place will definitely be coming back! Let me start off with the great parts, the oxtails will have you ready to tear up if you are missing that little bit of home feeling especially if you from the country, the red snapper is great no fishy taste at all was made perfect and fresh! The potato salad was great! Especially if you love that deviled egg kinda feel , as for the Mac and cheese it's cool kinda basic I've had worse but I've also had better the loving seems to be going mainly into the main dishes, it still has that homey feeling just needs some pepper or something, the greens were cool as well they were greens kinda missing that meaty flavor but that's probably because they want to be inclusive to other types of people that don't eat meat ,still good tho I respect it and would order again, the hush puppies were good gave kinda a cornbread feel if you're looking for that fish taste in there I'd get something else tho I don't really care for that taste to much so it was perfect for me, the prawns were pretty standard I mean it's fried shrimp what do you expect? It's clean fresh and the batter it's fried is was really nice, my only fault was when it came to the catfish it was pretty fishy for my liking definitely will just stick to the red snapper next time, and also for how expensive the oxtail plate was I'd think I'd get more that 3 little nuggets other than that it's still so good I'd order again still have the peach cobbler to try will update after ! And as for the service it was wonderful felt like I was talking to family but still professional, very nice, very on top of things, almost forgot my potato salad and came and got me from the parking lot and threw in an extra one for the very minor inconvenience, also if your looking for something super quick maybe look else where as it's not no fast food it's that fresh take some time food but man it's so worth it, don't get me wrong the wait time isn't ridiculous at all for what your getting, if you want cheap fast food go to Wendy's or something here you wait for the quality that your given

Fish and dessert are quite good; however, the new (very young cashiers have no customer service skills. Spotty hours for open time. Half the time no desserts as advertised.

I’m coming back to you Mrs Oliver. This was my first time coming to your establishment. At first I don’t want to except. But when I tasted the greens and potatoes salad the fish was nice an crisp like I like it. I found my new fish spot. Keep up the great food.DeCher

Oliver's never disappoints! I had a 10 piece prawn meal with greens and I also ordered a 4 piece catfish with more greens with 4 hush puppies and a side of yams. Delicious!!

Everything good BUT THE GREENS ARE TOOOOOOOOO SALTY EVERY TIME! Maybe lighten up a bit on the salt!

Delicious food. Flavorful greens and yummy potato salad. The fish is fried just right. The only downside was the Mac n cheese because it was a little boring. All in all a fantastic meal with fast courteous service.

Order was wrong, asked twice before I left if this was the correct meal. Got home and opened the bag. Not correct at all, not even close and nobody will answer the phone.

Olivers was tasty, Catfish and Snapper fried good(not soft, not too hard) with much flavor! Oysters were nice size fried on point. Shrimp was fried with a beer batter, but flavorful. Greens were on point and yams, sweet with a nice texture. Macaroni was better than Lucille's in Concord and better than Tease in Antioch, CA Thank you Oliver's.....Me and the fam bam are smiling from the belly UP!!! 4 and 1/2 STARS from #BeUpForLife.com

It was ok. Nice family owned business environment. I'm always conscious about our salt intake as African American culture as well as minorities. They could definitely use some economic development funding to upgrade their business platform. I still have a desire to taste ox tails.. See if they are better than mine!!!

Stopped In On the way back to San Jose thought I had read the reviews but must have missed it.. we order the 4pc catfish and 4 pc snapper with macaroni and cheese and collard greens . The catfish was ok husband said the snapper may have been over cooked and dry ..my mom didn't care for any of her food at all.. (she had the catfish, greens and peach cobbler) the macaroni and cheese had a wield smell kind of like something spoiled we think it might have been vinegar( to preserve)????? The caramel cake was flavorful but very dry..maybe you can't get good fresh desserts in the evening

Hands down the best!!! Sides are so important and I definitely don't mind ordering large sizes every time. Red snappers and the meat variation is generous. We don't do JJ's over here we say Oliver's anytime and any day!Red SnapperOystersFried ChickenPrawnsChicken Wings
