Went to this restaurant for dinner and enjoyed it very much. I was happy with the service by the lady who served out table. She was very efficient and saw that we had what we needed. The menu items were varied which gave each person in our party a large choice of dishes. Good value for the money. The salad... More

We stopped in to have a drink and decided to have dinner or something to eat. Selected a couple of app's with a salad. The spicy shrimp was not too spicy. Bland or just "fried shrimp". The "endless" salad bowl had very fresh veggy's and was very good.

Have eaten there several times and have always had a great meal. Oh that fresh salad, can't get enough. Good service, fast. Good value. Parking is a bit congested but proves they are popular. Very busy at times. My longest wait was 35 minutes but well worth it. Highly recommend.

Service is usually pretty good. I don't usually find Olive Garden to be the most comfortable of restaurants. Personal note, I wish they would do away with those horrible breadsticks and offer bread. Think Carrabbas!

Altoona's OG is not as nice as some, but the food and service are consistently good. Their latest remodel project (many years ago now) left the restaurant open with more of that cafeteria feeling. Personally, I hate that openness that ultimately results in a loud and noisy room with everyone in everyone's business. Absolutely best kept secret with this location... More

I have been here many times and had better service. I believe our waitress may have been new. The food was good although hard to get some refills. Some of us also had a hard time getting drinks refilled.

I've been to this Olive Garden several times and it's always good. Even though it was Christmas Eve, our served Damian was very nice and welcoming. Our meals were great, too.
