We haven't been here for quite some time so we decided to try it again. The first time wasn't very good so that's why we waited so long to go back. Glad we tried it again! The homemade soup was great. One of the best...More

We go to Olivia's probably once a month. For a bit there the food was inconsistent, however, the past few months it has been hot and great! Olivia is friendly and will visit your table if she is on duty!

Went to Olivia's with my in laws, who were visiting from out of state, on a week day evening during the fair. They weren't super busy, but it seemed like they were running with minimal staff--typical of everywhere during fair week!--so we were totally fine...More

Olivia's Family Restaurant is a hidden gem. It has excellent American-style food and great service, at reasonable prices, and it is quiet. Olivia's is located off of I-35 at Exit 42 in Owatonna, Minnesota. Go west from the exit and Olivia's is on the north...More

We had not been here in a while and decided to try them again on a Sunday morning. I was quite pleased. The portions were quite large and tasty. We had a ham and cheese omelette with hashbrowns and a pancake. Service was very good...More

On Monday, April 10, I chaired meeting of about 15 retired educators at Olivia's. The meeting space was functional the food was excellent and the service was special. We were able to conduct our business in record time and had a great meal as well.

This is our "fall back" restaurant. Have you ever had a fight between three of your kids on where to go to eat? Well that is always solved by saying "let's go to Olivia's". Everyone can find something to eat and enjoy the proper portions...More
