Fish fry - great. Poor man's lobster- great. Wonderful service and we sat outside and it was definitely very nice!

My fiance and I have been here before and everything was great but not this time around. Unfortunately, we walked in and the hostess was very rude to us. She was not polite and made us feel uneasy. We sat down at our table and just had a bad feeling about how rude she was to us and the fact that the menu is very limited now then what it used to be we ended up leaving before ordering our food. Very disappointing since we barely go out to dinner as it is.

I have had great food at the Olympic. Their steaks are great, and the fresh green beans are more than delightful. I would go back just for their vegetables. The Amish chicken was crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, cooked perfectly. They have a huge array of beer and cocktails. The patio is enjoyable. I will continue to give Olympic my patronage, and I would highly recommend this restaurant. I believe it is definitely in the top five of nicer restaurants in Rockford.

We love The Olympic Tavern's food.We ordered the steak tavern tacos, this time. The soft corn tortillas fell apart trying to pick up the taco. I took off 1 star for that.Our service was excellent.

Cheese curds are amazing! Massive cubes with perfect amount of breading. The pulled pork sandwich was solid, too, though I'd skip the ceviche next time. Friendly service and patio is dog friendly!

We had the heirloom Caprese salad and it was excellent. The filter mignon was tender and juicy. As soon as we were seated out waitress brought us big glasses of ice water, which we appreciated because it was very hot! Our waitress was friendly and attentive. All in all it was a very good dinner.

The Olympic Tavern has a great selection of beers to go with their meals. I usually order seafood but all of the entrees on the menu are tasty. The sandwiches are good too. I haven't tried their pizza so can't comment on it. Portions are generous and prices are good considering the excellent service you get.

Anything you get at Olympic Tavern will be above average, from the french fries to the wine to the pretzel bun, etc. Everything is decent quality and the staff are wonderful people. This is one of the best mid-priced restaurants in the Rockford-Beloit-Janesville-Madison corridor. Do not miss Olympic Tavern, it's been a long time staple for a good reason: it serves great food at excellent prices.


We have eaten at Olympic Tavern several times on this trip and have not been disappointed once. We have had excellent food each time and the service has been very good. We didn't have a reservstion the first time we came here, so had a short wait, but have made a reservation all the other times and have been seated right away. We can recommend the fish and chips, prime rib, and walleye. We have had the ceviche and artichoke and spinach dip and both were delicious. The dip is creamy and filled with artichokes and spinach. The ceviche was fresh and with the squeeze of lemon, just the right tart.
