Ever since Olivia and Loken have taken over, it has been down hill. Used to eat there 5 to 6 times a week. Breakfast and dinner. Now I try it maybe once a month in hopes it will get better. I have to say they are consistent. Meat must be from the cheapest vendor they can find and Sunny side up eggs are hard enough to be played with as a Frisbee Dinner meat also poor quality. Waitress s are mostly good but the cooks watch over them and ready to report anything to the owners. Maybe if they kept there mind on cooking the food it would taste a little better. So poor quality food + bad cooks and you ve got Olivia s.
On sunday around 1pm my family a total of 4 adults and 2 children ate at owatonna family restaurant. We grew concerned when a table to the right of us started to complain to the waitress that the food was cold and their response was well you ate it so you pay for it. We thought about leaving at this point but thought it was only one table. That is before the table behind us starting complaining to the waitress that they got the wronge food. The waitress said i can get the right food but you will have to wait another 20 to 40 min. (was rude). At this point we already were waiting for our food for 1 hour. We kept hearing the same story over and over again with each table. We knew it was bad news for us as well. When got our food and just as we thought cold. Very cold. We were so hungry we each ate half our food. Never once did our waitress come to see how it was. We waited and waited and finially our waitress came. She asked how it was and we told her it was cold and not good. She give us a bill and said it was busy and walked away. We went to pay and it was the manager who took our money. She asked how it was and we told her is was NOT good. It was cold. She said oh well we were really busy at the time. I was just floored how they are running their business. As if it is okay to give cold food and crappy service all because you are busy. Get more staff or better staff.
My family really enjoys eating at the Owatonna Family Restaurant. There are lots of menu choices, prices are reasonable and portions are large. The restaurant itself has a nice atmosphere and is clean. We have always had great service. From the steak and shrimp, chicken and ribs, breakfast skillets, omelets to crepes and waffles- each meal we have had has been wonderful- no complaints.
will not be going bk not once did they come and ask if everything was ok had the steak & shrimp the steak was so tough took me a 1/2 hr to eat 2 pieces the shrimp was soggy was laying in the juices from the steak
I have eaten at the Owatonna Family Restaurant a few times and have had two experiences that were good and the rest were bad. The servers often appear to not care about getting to you are assisting you in any way and any food sauce is bland and tasteless. I love salads but will not order one there as the Ranch dressing is completely watered down to the point of having absolutely no taste. I have talked to several wait staff and former wait staff and have been informed of the problems they have getting paid. I hate to see a restaurant close that may have potential (as there are good sized portions and many of the entrees are quite delicious) but the owner should apparently realize he cannot bounce payroll. As a former waitress from years ago, I realize how hard servers work for their money. I hope that the owner of Owatonna Family Restaurant realizes the potential and is able to improve the experience, but in this economy, one lost customer is one too many; and I am lost to dining there.
I thought it was great! A large amount of menu choices, excellent prices, and the food tasted great! It is nice to have a restaurant that sells good old regular food and not all that weird stuff like Applebees, TGIFriday's, etc. What a great addition to Owatonna!
Completely uninspired food off a truck and a disinterested staff. Setting was comfortable and clean. I would have traded the setting for some real mashed potatoes and blue cheese dressing that had blue cheese in it.
