Des Moines, Iowa

The Stuffed Olive.



It has been said many times that the Stuffed Olive in Downtown Des Moines is one of the City’s best kept secrets. Because it’s not the biggest bar and restaurant in town and because it’s usually busy, we don’t really advertise. One taste of our food and you’ll know why. The Stuffed Olive features a tapas (small plates) driven menu with a few incredible entrees, but it’s the from scratch nature in our kitchen that makes our food so good. Visit our menu here.
