The trainee waitress was the best part of the meal. She was attentive, sweet and eager. The food was average. That salad bowl is just iceberg lettuce coated in onions, croutons and one black olive, hence Olive Garden. My reduced calorie chicken was strange. Bathed in a lemony soup, it was hard to overcome the strong lemon flavor to get... More

Expensive, but convenient to hotel. Our original server was not great (she went home "sick"), but her replacement was fantastic.

Have eaten at Olive Garden Restaurants around the country and have never been disappointed in the service nor quality of food. Yes it is a chain restaurant and not the mom and pop, but the food is Italian and well prepared. Our server was good and pleasant. I had the stuffed chicken which I totally enjoyed.

I had a take out order and the bartender took several minutes to speak to me. When he did I acknowledge me he was short and disinterested. We only ate soup and salad so that was fine but the serve lacked hospitality!

Had lasagna for lunch last week. Too much cheese and way overcooked. Horrible. I am officially done with Olive Garden.

I used to eat here alot years ago and had drifted away. My son and I decided to give it a try again. It was a Saturday evening and was jammed when we arrived. We were told there would a 40 minute wait, so we found a seat and got comfortable. We were surprised when 20 minutes later our table... More

The manager came by to make certain our meal was in order - which it was great. You MUST try the dessert Zeppalini's with Raspberry Sauce. DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My daughter wanted OG meal for her birthday. I knew better but what's a dad to do? Saturday night wait for a table for 6 was 90 minutes. My wife saw 2 employees come in about 45 minutes into our wait dressed like cooks. Guess they were operating at less than full staff levels. I went to the bar and... More

They have great food here! I love that they run specials for items not on the menu on a regular basis. It is a little pricey, as with most Italian restaurants, but I always have food left over to take home, so making 2 meals out of it is definitely worth the money. The breadsticks are great as well.

My husband and I ate here Saturday evening. Our previous visit was about a year ago when visiting in Amarillo. We were very impressed both times. We have eaten at Olive Garden restaurants in other locations and this is the best, although we have enjoyed all of them.
