My former review was posted by mistake under Olive Garden, when it should have been the Pronto meal at Macaroni Grill instead. Disregard my former review. This Olive Garden offers the usual good food of their chain, and the service at this one is good. They do have a Pronto Lunch which I have not tried, as well as their... More

All around very good. Service was excellent, food is the same at whatever OG you visit; good solid Italian fare, not fancy but good. Price is average. The service at the Akron OG is excellent. I would recommend based on service alone.

I've always enjoyed the food at Olive Gardens, but hadn't been to one in years; so I was surprised to encounter the hostesses question about wanting their "pronto lunch." It sounded like a great deal for lunch, but we were then told to step around to another counter, order and pay for our food, pick up a stand with our... More

I prefer to stick to local restaurants (we are extremely lucky to have some of the best in the country in my opinion), but Olive Garden really does deliver great food for a variety of taste buds.

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
