Just outside the gates of Chautauqua Institution, this is the best option around. Excellent variety of meat and seafood. Reasonably priced, generous portions. and good service. Superb prime rib.

My husband and I dined at Olive's last night. I was delighted to get small table in side room-quiet and out of the main dining room. That, however, may have been the problem with the service. Our waitress, a nice enough lady, seemed over worked and concentrated on her tables in the main dining room. The three seated parties in... More

We've been to Olive's/Belinis numerous times since they've opened. Service is spotty. Sometimes it's good, but other times it's horrid. The quality of the food has declined lately. We recently sat in the bar and ordered chicken fingers. What could go wrong? The "fingers" were processed chicken (what I call "glorified McNuggets"). If I'm going to pay their price, the... More

We have been to Olives in Mayville, NY twice now and both times we were all very pleased with our meals. Our waitress was very pleasant and attentive. I will go back again. I loved my crab stuffed haddock!

Olive's (and Bellini's) is a nice local place to gather. I've been here many times for drinks and/or dinner, and I've always had a good experience. I wouldn't really recommend the pizza, as the crust is a bit thick and doughy. However, I've enjoyed many entrees including steak, pasta, and an excellent grilled romaine Caesar salad which I would highly... More

My husband and I organize an event each summer for Purple Heart Veterans- this includes a day of fishing on Lake Erie and a nice dinner that evening to say 'thank you' to our servicemen and women. Our previous venue had changed and only offered a picnic style dinner which was not what we wanted for our soldiers. We searched... More

Hamburgers are good, French fries are okay and serving was generous. Pizza was pretty bad. We've tried two varieties; crust is thick and tough, sauce and toppings are unimpressive. They could do better.

We recently had a family function and the level of service and food was excellent. Over the years we've had several family functions there and have yet to be disappointed. They have several rooms with the nicest being the library room in the back middle section of the restaurant from a privacy perspective. The restaurant is very accommodating as to... More
