In 2013, The Olive Tree moved to its much better and current location and has also expanded into having an attached Pub, namely The OT’s Pub. Currently one of very few establishments in town with live music and other entertainment.

The Olive Tree strives to be the innovator and leader in the food industry in the Yellowhead County. With the owners actively working in the business, by personally serving their customers or working in the kitchen preparing the most delicious meals, makes this restaurant and pub the success it is. All of our professional managers, servers and cuisine team work hard to make our guests feel special and each visit to be a memorable experience.
