I have had a lot of sweet tea, and Olive Garden got it right. Best value on soup and salad lunch deals.

To be early felt a little rushed at the service. Plates hit the table a little hard for what would be expected. Server seemed new and a little unsure. Two out of three dishes properly prepared with the one utilizing steak medallions had 4 different doneness one for each medallion. Discussed with a member of the kitchen who agreed and... More

Went for lunch w/ family and really enjoyed it! Service started out a little slow but the manager came over and helped speed everything along. Our food was hot and tasted great.

When seated our drink orders were taken and brought right away. Then we placed our orders, after an hour the salad and bread sticks were brought to the... More

We visited for lunch with five people. Room we were seated in was pretty, but very cold. Server never did anything to make it more comfortable. We were seated, then it went downhill from there. The server rarely checked back on us and repeatedly forgot to bring items even when we requested more than once. The food was good, but... More

This was the fourth visit to this restaurant in the last three months. I keep returning because of the great food and drink. I enjoy the Sangarita cocktail, one of my absolute favorites. Each visit to this restaurant I have enjoyed the wonderful salad that is served along with the rosemary chicken, or the steak tortellini. The only advise I... More

We enjoyed a nice lunch at Olive Garden. Service was attentive and quick. We love the salad and breadsticks. Enjoyed the Chicken Parm sandwich, portion was huge, unless you are a really big eater I recommend you order the 1/2 portion size at lunch. Recently renovated the restaurant looks great. All in all a very nice lunch.
