My wife and I eat here every once and a while. I love there BBQ pulled pork and my wife get the BBQ pulled chicken. Home made chips are included or for a dollar you can upgrade to fries. The meals only cost 6 to 7 dollars, great value.

Totally amazing discovered by mistake. The entire staff very friendly. Connie waited on us and she knows her menu. Very friendly. We will be going back soon and often. Fine dinning where you wouldn't think possible. The owner and staff did / do an outstanding job. Thankful the freeway was closed so we were able to discover something new. Thank... More

For such a small town, this restaurant is surprisingly good. My mother and I ate here while traveling and we were not disappointed.

I am remiss in reviews of Olivia's Chop House. Every time I go back to Hillsdale College to either drop off my son for college for the start of the new school year or pick him up at the end of the school year, my wife, son and visit Olivia's. The best restaurant in the area is always worth another... More

Our group of 4 adults enjoyed a Friday evening meal. Service was very spotty! Most of servers appear to be learning of the job. Decor is modern and I think out of character for the community. Steaks were better than average and a reasonable value. Surprising the rack of ribs did not have a half rack option? (or perhaps server... More

Stopped in for dinner on the recommendation of the front desk clerk of our hotel in the area. Very impressed especially considering we were kind of out in the middle of nowhere. I had the Capri salad, ribeye and hubby had the sirloin and perch special with a caesar salad. Everything was delicious. Slightly disappointed that we missed the prime... More

The meal was ok. I had chicken Alfredo. Seemed to take a bit long for service. Waited for drinks waited for the meal all the while sweating. It didn't feel like the AC was on. Hard to enjoy the meal when its so uncomfortably hot.

Bland food in a loud restaurant with lots of wasted space. I've been twice to purchase dinner and once after a Sauk production for their "after party". Food was just meh and I wouldn't know about the food from the after party as we were there within 15 minutes of it starting and there was no food left. No thanks.

My wife and I visited Olivia's Chop House on July 23, 2016. The place is nicely decorated in a modern style - very nice atmosphere. We sat at a booth. The appetizer was excellent, especially the eel sauce. My wife had the duck with risotto I had the pork ribeye with a baked potato. Both entrees also came with green... More
