Good steak in a Vegas-style setting...

The decor is a little strange given the town because it's more Vegas than Michigan but our waitress Ainsley was great and so was the steak. Delicious.

Love this place and visit far too often! Great food, good service and reasonably priced lunches. Not sure how well the dinners are priced but hear they are a bit steep.

We go there whenever we can. Wayne does a great job with the menu and the food is usually excellent whenever we go there. If you like calamari, it is always on point. Kudos to the Babcock family for creating such a great establishment in a great small town!

stayed in jonesville for a week for business. and pretty much came to Olivia's on a daily basis for lunch. The food was excellent, the portion is big, taste great, the steak was exactly what i ordered, seared tuna also good. this is definitely not comparable to restaurants in the big city, but for a small town like jonesville, this...

This is a very nice restaurant - often having white linen table cloths and napkins. They had a wonderful Mother's Day Brunch with only minimal waiting. The food was very good and everyone attending was dressed appropriately! Worth your trip.

Great food, little pricy but atmosphere and décor was cold and not very welcoming. High back booth's were nice. Have been trying to go since they have opened and finally got there. May go back due to the food being so good. :)

We had my folks with us on a trip to see my Hillsdale student. The plan was to make a further drive to find a quality dinner. After a day of antiquing in Allen, we were wiped out and not interested in driving very far. We decided to try Olivia's. None of us were disappointed in our meals, I was... More

This restaurant was also recommended by the hosts at Munro House. The calamari was amazing, best we ever had. The entrees were excellent and portions were over the top. When we return, we will definitely seek out this restaurant again.

We did not have a reservation on a Saturday evening. We waited for 30 minutes. After seating we received our drinks and then waited another 25 minutes for our meals. My son and I had the strip steak and crab cakes. We didn't like the crab cakes the steak was tasty but very greasy. The mashed potatoes were lukewarm. The... More

was checking restraurants for special deserts to celebrate someone's birthday but see nothing listed on your menu. Always loved you as Chicago Water Grill but have been disappointed not so much in the food but the quality of drinks (skimpy) and the service. So we have only visited a few times. Thought we would give you another try since I... More
