On my lunch break. ...

My DH and I decided to go on my 1hr1/2 lunch break, kinda pushing it and I work 15 mins away. We were seated in the back area by the kitchen, there was a smell but we couldn't guess what it was. Our orders were ordered promptly, DH received the wrong drink, our salad and bread took a while to... read more

Food was ok but service was horrible after confronting the manger even he lied to my face to protect his waiter and after paying 75.00 tab he offered nothing in return I'll never visit that location again

From endless pasta bowl to buy one take one, the specials are sure to be good to your wallet and keep you coming back over and over again!

This was the first time I went to Olive Garden and my food was not good. The wait time was 20 minutes and it was not a lot of people in the seating area. It was very cold. The server was not nice, food took about 45mins to come out. The server did not bring salad and bread right out,... More

After an early matinee movie my cousin and I decided on Olive Garden for lunch. It was just around 1 p.m. and the parking lot was still quite packed. We found a space towards the front and walked inside. Pleasantly greeted by the hostess she took us to a nearby table. Our server came quickly and asked for our drink... More

The restaurant has a new and nicer decor. The salad there is one of the best. Some appetizers are very good, especially the risotto balls. Recently ate the steak with Alfredo pasta. Very good and well prepared. My children always appreciate their pizza and lasagna.

Always good, OG is sometimes trying on a weekend evening. I find using their take out delivers a meal within 20-minutes that is hot, tasty, and most importantly, without waiting for a table.

Olive Garden is synonymous with consistently good Italian food. This time it was better. I had the eggplant parmigiana with a side of spaghetti. It was hot and well prepared. The eggplant was crispy with just the right amount of marinara sauce and cheese to make it delicious. The breadsticks are always a home run.

Although the restaurant was virtually empty, we were seated in a section that had no server assigned to it. After waiting for 15 minutes, I asked for help and a extremely rude, gruff manager informed us that we actually caused the problem by asking to be seated in an open area of the restaurant. She did not apologize for her... More

I have been here for dinner, and the service was very good for me. The soup tasted really good, but the salmon was not good, it was bland, after being turned down, the waitress brought us another plate of salmon, even that is still bland.
