The Olympic Tavern

The Olympic Tavern was founded in 1945 by Anthony Rotello. Originally serving local businessmen and factory workers a burger and a beer, The Olympic Tavern quickly grew into a full service restaurant and bar. Through several renovations, Anthony and his son Thomas grew the business from a 12-stool bar into the 250+ seat restaurant that exists today. The Olympic Tavern’s formula for success is simple; listen to the customer and deliver more than they expect. There’s everything from burgers to lobster tails on the menu, a great wine list and Rockford’s best craft beer menu.
