Wonderful girls day out!!

Took my daughter and 14 year old granddaughter out for a girls' day and the youngest chose Olive Garden over any restaurant in town! And, as always, it was wonderful! The salad and breadsticks are still the best addition to any meal, but our entrees were prepared extremely well. I had the Five... read more

Love the salad and bread sticks. It doesn't matter what state or city we are in if there is an Olive Garden the food is always good. Although I must say this time the bread sticks didn't have the garlic salt on them like they use too. Don't know if it was just this time or if things have changed.... More

Love their soup and salad - breadsticks are perfect and they keep on bring more! Their lemon cake is the best I have had in a long time!

The steak was cooked exactly as ordered, the latte was so deliciously robust and flavorful, the chicken and gnocchi soup was savory and oh so creamy, even the breadsticks were spot on! The service was friendly, attentive, and efficient. What more could you ask for from a mid level chain Italian restaurant? Both my wife and I were totally satisfied.

We did get seated as soon as we walked in which was great and handed menu's but no one ever came to take our orders. It wasnt like we were in... More

Guys know certain things are expected of them. We've done OG in a lot of states and cities. Not so crazy about this one. Inconvenient parking. Strange layout for the restaurant itself and a bit dark. Food was as expected. Ok for me. And as always my better half was knocked out by the Chicken Alfredo. As for me, when... More

We love the breadsticks, not so much the restaurant it self. When we would go there we would just order the salad and breadsticks, which with tip and paying full price for my girls if got to be way to expensive. So, we came up with a great way to get our breadstick fix. We make our own Olive Garden... More

The restaurant is in desperate need of a renovation. The chairs are shabby and the decorations are dusty. The food is pricey for what you get. The house wine was $7 and not very good. I wanted clam linguini but is was not on the menu. We had to wait a long time to get our food. The waiter did... More

Use to love the tuscana soup now it is so watery not even funny doesnt even taste the same. The service is just ok. The food was so dry and tasted old was disappointed in the money spent i could have made it better myself.
