Can't go wrong

You can't go wrong going to the Olive Garden. Great all you can eat salad, flavorful Italian fare, in a usually busy restaurant. If you don't mind the occasional wait here, you'll have a great meal.

Food here is good enough. Service is good enough. Wait for food was average, so the overall mark is average.

I am not a fan of smothered pasta. I prefer simple dishes with lots of flavor. The rosemary chicken with garlic is a good choice for me.

I have eaten here several times and unfortunately this is the second time they have served me raw chicken. The waitress asked if my meal was okay and I told her that I thought my chicken wasn't done. After the odd look I received from her, I followed it up with my chicken isn't done. The correct response would have... More

We went there late Saturday evening. The waitress was friendly and service was great (one of the last tables) With the exception of some vacuming by staff It was very enjoyable. We thought the food was very tasty. I have eaten here on several occasions before and will return. I recommend this restraint.

You can never go wrong with this place! It has great and tasty food, endless salad, soup, and breadsticks. Dinners are a bit pricey for the portion size, but the service is great, fast and friendly.

When I go to a place such as the OG, I never trick myself into thinking that the dining experience will strike me as "fine." However, if God calls you here chiefly to partake in the mao-ing of pasta, salad, and breadsticks, He will not disappoint you. The wine service is almost a deliberate joke -- they feature their "house"... More
