I came into Alivia's at 10 PM, and was informed the kitchen closed at 10 and that I could not order food. However, 20 minutes later, I saw another group (who'd come in at least 10 minutes after me) ordering food. I attempted to order as well from the exact same server immediately thereafter, but was denied. I've been to Alivia's before and the food's just passable, but this was pretty ridiculous. I'll just stick to the Fed from now on, which always has delicious food and which also never has service problems like this.

There were so many things on the menu that looked great that I had a hard time choosing my lunch dish. I finally settled on the Spicy Chicken Sandwich with the chipolte ranch dressing. It was great! The salad I chose for my side was very fresh and tasty as well.
The waitress was pleasant and attentive without hovering or becoming impatient when it took us a while to order.
Give this restaurant a try for a nice casual lunch!

Been going here for awhile and give it thumbs up. Great fire-pit seating outside. Friendly atmosphere. Menu is limited, but what's there is good. John is new manager and is making a positive difference in many ways....it's worth going several times to see how things are new and getting better. Talk with John....he'll listen!

I am very optimistic about this business. I love the location of Alivias. Their food, beer, and atmosphere are top notch. There is one server I am not particularly fond of though. She is very rude to us and has messed up my order several times. Whenever I get her now, I ask for somebody else and the management tells me no. That's not good customer service. I sure hope they really do listen to customer complaints. I try not to let this bother me, because this is a rather classy place, but unfortunately it is the direct link. I do recommend trying them out in the end.

Went to Alivia's the other week because it was so nice outside, and we wanted to eat outdoors. The whole restaurant opens up to the outside! Our food was very good. We HIGHLY recommend the provolone cheese appetizer! It was awesome. Additionally, Alivia's has a pretty good beer and wine selection for those of us that enjoy microbreweries and craft beers.

I ordered some chicken wings once at Alivias and I am very patient. I went to the bar about 45 minutes later and my server had no order in for me and then I was told the kitchen was closed? Are you serious? I will never be back unless just for a beer. It's hard to mess that up but we will see.
