Love to eat at Olive Garden when we stay over for our annual shopping trip.

This Olive Garden did not disappoint. We love the all you can eat salad, and garlic bread sticks. The pasta dishes that we choose were filling and delicious.

We had lunch there and had the all-you-can eat, bottomless bowl of salad that came with our meal. I didn't much care for all of the bread, but the salad was so good, my wife and I ate two bowls of it.

My co-worker and I came for lunch after seeing the "Create your own Tour of Italy" commercial. I was disappointed to see the way it was structured. There were 3 different categories with 3 selections in each category. You then get to choose one from each category. There was one category where I didn't really care for any of the... More

Olive Garden never disappoints whether the soup & salad or tour of Italy. I did notice they are serving less bread sticks and the salad seemed a little smaller, but those items are bottomless. They are trying out a new table payment which I found easy and convenient. For signing up. You receive a free appetizer or dessert the next... More

Pros: Salad fresh,, Shrimp well cooked and fresh, welcome kids with crayons, Cons: Salmon too much fried (black - are they doing charcoal fry?),pasta too sticky and bread salty, ranch not the best I have tasted. They need to take more care and show... More

We were up here for a brief visit and decided to eat here. Normally eat at the Olive Garden in Poughkeepsie NY. This place here in Amherst was a lot better in proportions and taste compare to Poughkeepsie. We were very pleased with the meal and would go back again.

We were there for a simple family get together. It is well appointed along with Olive Garden expectations with ample parking. We have not been to an O.G. for a while and found their menu to be rather extensive. Service was friendly and efficient. We were there before the heavy dinner crowd. It offers as usual a red wine to... More
