Haven't been here in a while but got a gift card so I went back. Great service and we were seated immediately. Food was very good and they kept up with all of our requests for drink refills, salad and bread. Nicely updated and plenty of parking at 5 pm. Very pleased.

We haven't been here in two years, protesting the lack of updating of the inside. Well the inside has been updated with new cushions, tables, chairs etc. they did a nice job. The food was very good and fresh tasting we will be back soon!

The reception staff at the front had a lot of room to improve. We were a group of 7. Told to be a wait of 40 minutes, ended up a wait of 1 hr. and 15! The table we were assigned was meant for a group of 5 and was located next to a VERY LOUD and LARGE group of... More

It's been years since my last time at this location and it hasn't improved. The meal is way overpriced considering the quality and quantity of food; $14 bucks for a small chicken breast topped with a tablespoon of crabmeat over wilted spinach just doesn't do it for me. My dining partner had the cheese ravioli and it was good. Although... More

We are not big of our garden fans but was visiting from out of state and my family wanted to eat there. I got grilled chicken and asparagus. My chicken was dry and the asparagus was good. My wife was able to eat gluten-free. The service was really good

Our last visit to the Olive Garden may have ben our last for a while. The food was of standard quality which is to be expected, but the prices seem to have gone to the 'why are we paying this much to go to a chain?' With the prices that are being charged, one could go to a higher end... More

Chose this place because my kids like it when traveling and the service was fine and friendly. My daughter though the ravioli exceptionally yummy. The salad was not as good as others I have had at other Olive Gardens - however it is winter so that must be considered.

We wanted a quick meal after a long flight from London. We were seated in a comfortable booth. Service was quick and friendly. A la carte food selection was quite large but we ordred from the specials menu. Our food was well cooked and enjoyable. The bill for four people including starter, main and desert with soft drinks was a... More

I don't know what has changed, but this place was way better than the last several times we've been there. I can't remember the last time I received a hot meal that hadn't been reheated to death there. But this time, everything was perfect from the appetizers, to the salad, to the entrees. No way I had room for dessert,... More
