Olive house has great service and amazing food!!! The best hummus and awesome chicken dishes - if you are looking for good middle eastern food this is the place - don't miss it on your way though town.

I saw the menu online and was really expecting more. There was a big variety of options but the food was really not seasoned well for being Mediterranean. This is a very small restaurant with only 5 tables. Family owned and ran - seemed like the younger children were there just hanging out. They all were very pleasant. Unfortunately not... More

Olive House does a nice job with Mediterranean dishes and drinks. The hummus, meat and rice dishes, kebobs, salads, and lentil soup are all well made and tasty. There are a number of vegetarian options as well. I come here regularly, and I have never been disappointed.

We went at 11:30 for lunch. Service was fast and friendly. All of the salads are delicious- great dressing. Gyros very tasty. The combo plate was plenty for a growing boy! Flavored nicely. The lentil soup is obviously a favorite-

Visiting my sister, had such a great dinner here! Ordered the falafel plate as an app, I had the aloo gobhi and whoa! So good. Server was very sweet and professional. Saw a line waiting for sushi next door, they're missing out!

Olive House offers Mediterranean cuisine and some items on the menu I have also seen on menus in Indian restaurants as well. Located across State Street from Chauncey Hill Mall and behind Chipotle, it's a quaint corner restaurant. It is a sit-down joint with most menu items ranging from $5-$15. The food is good and the best part about this... More

I've enjoyed everything I've tried here, but the hummus is especially tasty. It's attractively topped with a variety of spices, so you can create your own flavor blend with each bite. The portions are generous, making the food an extra good value.

The food is what you would expect from a big chain restaurant...almost always good, but never great. This location has service ranging from good to worst ever. I eat there regularly because it is a favorite of a coworker, but I wouldn't go there on purpose.

Long time Purdue campus restaraunt. Good food and service. Sidewalk dining is nice when the weather is right.
