called ahead to prep them for a large party. when we arrived had to wait a short time as they finished preparing the table. seated and drink orders taken, food orders taken and waitress kept beverage full and bread on the table. Meal was hot and tasty. meals were prepared properly and were appealing.

We had Chad as our server and he was so polite, was checking on us and keeping our drinks refilled! We never had a long wait between courses, and the food was great! Cindy has the best Olive Garden in the USofA! She deserves a award for how awesome she does running that restaurant! :)

Came on a very busy Veterans day but it was worth the wait. I started with the risotto balls and could have kept ordering them as a meal. Ceasar salad was good and my pasta meal was delicious as usual. Staff were very friendly and attentive.

This place is always busy. too many times we had to drive away because the wait is way too long. We have on occassion made it in for dinner, but mostly lunches. The food has always been excellent with Smiley, Happy servers. Would surely reccommend.

Visited this Olive Garden recently with eleven people. All had soggy noodles that were pasty and something like you would get in a can of Campell's Chicken Noodle Soup! Worst meal I've ever had! I told the waitress twice, that I was not happy with the meal but got no response. Not a place I will visit again.

Beautiful, clean new restaurant. Staff were very friendly. Food, as usual, was so good. We always visit Olive Garden when in the US and this made us want to come again. There was a bit of a wait but we had a beeper that let us know when it was our turn.

My wife and I were in Augusta to attend an assembly of Jehovah's Witnesses, where we saw my grandchildren get baptized. My daughter arranged a dinner afterwards for a number of family members and friends. The Olive Garden was the ideal venue. She made the best choice.
