The wife and I were catching a movie in the area and we needed to eat dinner. We chose this Olive Garden based upon our prior experiences with the chain. It was a busy Saturday night and there was a wait however, when we inquired about eating in the bar area, we were seated right away. The server was fast,... More

I LOVE Olive Garden!!! I cannot eat much at a time so a lot of my food goes home with me. The re-heated is almost as good as when it was served. Food is hot, tasty, enjoyable

We ate at Olive Garden because we were given gift certificates for Christmas. We were pleasantly surprised by the improved menu and food quality. Have kind of forgotten about this little gem over the years but it's even better than I remembered.

Nothing to not like-food is always great the the staff was awesome. They were very patient with my great niece who wanted another meatball-the server was unfailingly polite and fetched another with a smile.

We anticipate this promo each year as it is always amazing! Each year something new is added. This year is no exception. Excellent new sauces. Try getting a side of the salad dressing and dipping your breadsticks in it. YUMMY! The salad is always too dry even when you ask for extra dressing so next time we are switching to... More

When you go,to,Olive Garden you know what to expect. Great Italian food and plenty of it. The refillable soup and salad are very good and the choice of main dishes is vast. It is a nice place for friends and groups. It does get noisy...

I enjoy lunch there with my friends more than dinner. Love the fresh salad and breadsticks. Most of their chicken dishes are very good as is their eggplant dish.

I love ordering the bottomless soup bowl & salad at lunch. A healothy bargain. The three soups offered, maybe four, are all fresh and fairly wholesome. Delicious. The atmosphere is always nice, and so is the service. I highly recommend this restaurant.

the flavors are fantastic along with the fresh salad greens and delicious soups. Of course, everyone appreciates the bread sticks and dreams about them long after they have left the restaurant. Plan on returning soon.
