As we were taking the long way home from Detroit we found ourselves traveling thru Jonesville during dinner time. While sitting at a stop light I looked over and saw a cool looking place called Olivia's Chop House. We thought why not! Wow what a great surprise. The place was so cool looking inside. It is the type of place... More

We think it is up to the best we've tasted in all parts of the USA. It is not bad in price, but don't invite a crowd and plan to pay for it. It will be memorable in more than one way! The waitstaff is excellent and the atmosphere is generally hushed and not loud, etc.

A friend and I met there for a later evening meal. Very nice atmosphere. The waiter was courteous but slow and they weren't busy. We had to wait more than 10 minutes to get our water. Another wait- person checked our table and asked if we had been helped. She made sure our service improved. It wasn't a big deal... More

Very cool looking, unique dining experience. Excellent menu and great service. Would definitely like to go back again! A great find in a very small town.

I wish I had a larger appetite when I ate here....I would have ordered so much more. The environment was surprising modern being located in Jonesville, MI. They had a very nice wine selection at very reasonable prices. My friend and I were not very hungry so decided to share our meal. We got the calamari and I have to... More

I had prime rid and my wife chose tuna. Both were quite pleasant. The server, as well, was most professional....she returned the well done prime rib(I had ordered medium rare) and almost immediately brought out a piece of meat properly cooked.My only criticism is that they do not take reservations...which to me is essential to my true dining comfort.

Have tried most of the items on their menu and there isn't one that I wouldn't have again. Love having a restaurant like this in our town that you can always count on for a good meal and invite others without worrying if they will enjoy it. Menu has a great variety from steak, pecan chicken, black and blue tuna... More

The owner of this place moved to town about 15 years ago, started a real nice restaurant with a trendy menu, which finally burned down several years ago. But he rebuilt and the result is a bit of Chicago chic in small town Jonesville. The salads are perfect, and the specials are always good. Not your typical small town restaurant.

I've been here several times and whether it's just for drinks, lunch, or dinner we've never had any complaints with the food or service. They have a nice selection on their menu and everything tastes great. From soups to sandwiches, their mac & cheese options, or a glass of wine, it's not only good but a good value.

Well I was in the area and was looking for a NICE restaurant and came across this online a "5 star restaurant". I am a frequest to REAL 5 star restaurants such as Mortons, Ruth's Chris, Capital Grille, etc. Going in, I expected that type of service and quality. I will say the wait staff was pleasing to the eye... More
