The berry sangria was quite refreshing and had plenty of fruit. The waitress was attentive and offered suggestions. My husband enjoyed the lasagna; while I enjoyed the tri-colored pasta with Alfredo sauce. The teramasu (spelling) was delicious...even if I am experiencing a senior moment on how to spell the name of that dessert!

Wonderful food and great service. The server even let my wife sample two white wines before she made a decision. Olive Garden prices and food quality is excellent. If anything the service was too fast. We were still on the salad and appetizers when our main course arrived.

After a trip to Stager's Store in Portage, Pa we decided to have supper somewhere that had some good food. After never coming to the Olive Garden before, we decided to come here and eat. We had parked and walked in the doors when a man named Bradley had greeted us and showed us our table. On the way to... More

Its your normal Olive Garden but its right across the street from the Hotel. You have to cross a busy street an easy walk approx. 300 ft, but due to traffic you may want to drive. Just another plus to staying at the Holiday Inn Express & Red Lobster is less than a block away !!!

I have visited this restaurant on several occasions and at best it has been poor. The stuff was poorly trained letting food get burnt and feeding people not so good food having to call an ambulance. The managers did make it right for all parties involved to give out gift cards and tried to make up for very bad previous... More

For a chain, it's fine. Endless salads are very good, as are bread sticks. Meals are fine also, but there is nothing exceptional or 'over-the-top' about it. We've not had a bad meal here: it's a place to go for 'chain Italian restaurant-style' food; it is usually crowded at meal times, and there are often groups of people waiting to... More
