Olive Branch Restaurant
Olive Branch Restaurant

May your time at the Olive Branch be a new beginning for you. Look around you at the friends and family enjoying the good food and fellowship of this place. Many a new beginning got its start over a good meal, and many a person has felt at peace and in harmony with the world after a time of fellowship and dining. It was for this purpose that the Olive Branch came in being. It is more than a restaurant; it is a gathering place once again just as it was when it was a church. As you leave this evening, perhaps you will hear the cooing of the dove calling the human family to peace, and if you are truly fortunate, perhaps you will see a dove in flight with an olive branch in its mouth.
