Love this place when you can get in to eat!

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.

We had the terrible idea of trying the local lobster restaurant down the road. After a 2 hour wait, while being seated and drinking, we still didn't have food. So a group of us, with DD's of course, drove to the Olive Garden. It might have been the drunken state I was in or the fact I was so hungry... More

Not having an Olive Garden in Nova Scotia, I try to visit one every chance I get. I was not as happy however with this visit. The salad was as usual, fresh and unlimited. But my entrée was not as I would expect and I did not end up finishing it, which is unusual for me. I had the pappardelle... More

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.
