We have passed by Olivia's many times and based on the number of cars parked around the location it must be exceptional, right? WRONG! The industrial decor means it's very noisy and makes it seem "cold." The house salad was excellent with the clumps of raisins and chopped pecans. However the "Signature" pork chop was over cooked meaning dry and... More

The service and food are exceptional at lunch time. Not your typical fast hamburger joint. Decor is industrial, the menu has just the right number of entrées to choose from and the servings are generous as well as unique and delicious. Closed on Mondays.

The food & atmosphere is very good. I was surprised when I walked in the building. The outside does not represent the fine dining experience. Great place in Jonesville, MI.

I've never even heard of a prime rib sandwich. There it was on the menu, coaxing me away from a regular burger, which I've had here before and know to be delicious. I caved and spent the extra $2 for the Prime rib with Gouda cheese, grilled mushrooms and onions on rye. A side of your choice is included. I've... More

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.

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.

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
