The female manager that seated us... read more

This is by far the worst Italian chain restaurant. On their commercial they claim they send their chief to Italy to train... well it certainly doesn't taste like it. The taste and the quality of meal is mediocre at best. And how can an Italian restaurant over cook pasta? I thought that only happens in Cafeteria. Cooking Pasta really is... More

As always in any Olive Garden they have phenomenal delicious dishes My favorite is Eggplant Parmesan. The service was super nice and they fed us well. The sun was shining and everyone in here were happy. One difference with this Olive Garden is that the restrooms are not at the entrance as usual, but in the back this time. Great... More

Had a wonderful visit. Don't know what these other reviewers are talking about or what they expected. It is a chain restaurant. The service was wonderful. The food was excellent. We were a party of two and had the wonderful salad bowl for one and the dumpling soup for the other. The bread sticks where good but a little salty.... More

We have not been to an Olive Garden in a while. We try to frequent non-corporate, farm to table restaurants. A lot of the chains have everything made in a processing/preservative center, frozen, shipped in to the local restaurant, then reheated for the customer. However, this was close to our hotel, and we thought we would try it. The food... More

For a chain restaurant it is pretty good. For a chain a close to good Italian as it is going to get. Prices are ok but I feel the portions are on the small side. Then again I am a hearty eater so the is completely subjective. All in all a good place to eat

As I'm currently on a weight loss regime it isn't always easy to find something tasty but not fattening which in America isn't easy. The choice of food was reasonably extensive but I chose Chicken and Broccoli which weighs in at around 550 calories. Delighted to find that it was well cooked, tasty and light and at the same time...

This is always a delicious experience. I also like the fact that they have the occasional special and coupons available. This location is so very busy, make sure that you come on an off time so that you don't have to wait long. The black tie cheesecake dessert is THE BEST dessert that you will ever eat, get one to...
