Always great food and service. The red snapper is my favorite meal in Mankato. Breakfast service is exceptional.

Yeah, I know I've posted reviews for this place previously. And the only things I've had are the buffet, the hummus, and the baba ganoush. But the food has always been great and the service is WONDERFUL. Plus they make a mean really dirty martini....More

My wife and I visited our good friend Dan who lives in Mankato. We went out for supper at olives, and it was awesome. It had a vibe like the old Cheers TV show. It is a wonderful place to stop for a drink, or...More

Too many times a restaurant connected to a hotel doesn't have to be too good. The steak was done perfectly, very tender. Nice roll and of course plate of olives first. Would definitely return. Good variety of entrees, not just the usual standard fare.
