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.

My wife and I try and eat lunch at Olive Gardens when we travel as the food, service and atmosphere is consistent wherever you go. We had never dined at this particular restaurant but I am glad we did. The décor inside is beautiful and the food and service were top notch. We will return to this restaurant on future... More

We have been eating at this location of OG so long, that this is the second renovation we have seen. In the 15+ years of going to this location, I will have to say that I don't ever recall a bad tasting meal. Always very consistent in whatever dish I have ordered. As for the renovation, it is a much... More

Took my son and his two friends (13 year olds) to Olive Garden for his birthday. We were seated immediately and loved the new look of this Olive Garden (it's been a few years since we have ate at this one). The kids were impressed with the look as well. We all had salad and bread sticks. Our entrees included... More

The restaurant was nothing special but that is to be expected since it is a chain and I have experienced this chain in other areas of the country. Everyone's orders were correct but the waiter did not tell my son-in-law that his order was not a main course and the salad was extra. When the bill came he questioned the... More

I took my family here for a birthday dinner. HUGE MISTAKE. Their inventory was literally bare. No fettuccine, no mashed potatoes, no Sprite, I received a steaming glass of carbonated water. Yum Yum. After waiting for over a hour to receive our order of baked ziti, rosemary chicken and a kid's meal, we realized our meal was below expectations. Baked... More

Went with my wife and mother in law and were seated almost immediately. We were greeted by two servers, one was training the other. From start to finish the food and service was tremendous. We each had something different and shared each other's meals. The chicken fettuccini was superb and the eggplant parm (girls shared) was delicious. The salad and... More

I love OG in all states. This one is no exception. The service was great and the food never disappoints.
