Olivera’s Restaurant has proudly serviced Ionia and surrounding communities for over 13 years. In April of 2014, Olivera’s moved into their new location at 390 South Dexter Street across from the fairgrounds. The newly renovated and greatly expanded establishment offers a seating capacity of 288, boasting three spacious, cozy dining areas to accommodate the unique needs of all their guests. The casual dining area is ideal for family gatherings, business meetings or anyone opting for a quiet, more subdued dining experience. They added a large, open dining addition to the south side of the building that has become known as “The Pit”; with large overhead glass doors offering al fresco dining during the warmer weather and guarantees a view year round. Their uniquely designed island bar was built to be the centerpiece of all the action; with 35 seats around the large concrete bar-top and a number of pub tables and booths surrounding. The concrete olive in the center of the bar is symbolic of their appreciation of Michigan Beer. Olivera’s features 20 Michigan Craft Beers in their line up at all times, boasting 28 drafts in all. They’ve also made many additions to their wine list from our great state and abroad giving Olivera’s the most extensive beer and wine selection offered anywhere between Grand Rapids and Lansing! Olivera’s has also fine-tuned their already broad list of menu offerings that you’ve enjoyed in the past. No worries, you’ll still find your favorite Pizza, Pasta, Burgers, Sandwiches, Salads, and more, not to mention additional weekly chef features as well. They have also added a new express lunch menu that offers fresh prepared meals with many options to choose from under $7.95. This makes Olivera’s menu the most extensive in the surrounding area. Throughout Olivera’s you will find over 50 HD tv’s featuring a large array of sporting events to suit every fan. The entire facility is enhanced with a new state of the art sound system that has four different zones made for everyday listening and theater quality surround sound. Also added to the building is a new take out area that offers quick access through a separate entrance on the north side of the building for their customers. Olivera’s has been voted the best in Ionia County repeatedly for Italian Restaurant, Pizza, Sports Pub and More. They offer dine in and delivery plus catering in house or off site for all occasions. Their more than 75 employees are friendly and professional and ready to serve you the moment you walk in our door or call in a delivery. They are there to ensure you have an exceptional experience each and every time. Olivera’s goal is to be the most distinctive restaurant in Ionia. They have always strived to be the best at what they do by delivering top notch product & service with an added personal touch. We invite you in to see what’s new at Olivera’s & “experience the flavor of originality”!
