My wife and I were in Birmingham for BSC softball and discovered it by accident. Had drinks and appeitizers at the bar. Have been back 4times since and eaten dinner. Very friendly owner/chef and staff,especially the bar tenders. Great specials and small but wonderfull menu. Everything I have tried was wonderfull. The shopping center is to be torn down and we might loose this fine local restaurant. High rent will kill small independents but you might have a big chain restaurant. Try it you should like it.

We have only been here once but are certainly looking forward to eating here again. The service was excellent. The food was even better. Started with the Golden Beet Salad. It was delicious. We chose the special the night we were there. It was quail. Wow! did we make a great choice. We loved every bite.

My husband and I have been twice. Once with a group and once on a date. Both experiences were great. The food is excellent, the service is good and such a neat little place too. I would recommend anyone visiting Birmingham or who lives in Birmingham eating here. Foods are seasonal as they use local products, so it changes throughout the year. One of the best things is their homemade ice cream, however, all the cuisine is unique and delicious and they have their own brand of cocktails as well.

The food at Ollie Irene just keeps getting better and better! From the appetizers to the scallops, the mushroom ravioli to the ice cream and apple pie, everything was excellent. Great service, everyone smiling and attentive. Already looking forward to our next visit!
