I love their egg plant dish, spaghetti with fettuccine alfredo! I am not an egg plant connoisseur, but Olive Garden cuts the egg plant thin & deep fries it with a crunchy batter.

I've been here a few times already and the food is always mediocre. Today we went for a family member's birthday. I ordered my pasta with rotini and the chef came out to personally tell me they were out of rotini. I respect that the chef came to tell me that but how can an Italian eatery be out of... More

We had to wait about thirty minutes on a Friday night. they had quoted us 45 so we felt happy to get in earlier. We got our drinks and food really fast and our waitress was very friendly. The restaurant was super busy and a little noisy, but we had great service.

Christina (I hope I spelled your name right) is AMAZING!!!! Kindest and most compassionate manager of any food establishment I've ever been to. I was just there picking up some soup, and was blown away by how kind and helpful you were. Thank you so much for your kindness. We all appreciate it very much. Love the restaurant as well,... More

I know it's a very popular place, and it seemed that at first, years ago, I enjoyed the food. I don't know if my tastes have changed or what, but for whatever reason, I find the food about average, nothing special or to rave about. Even the bread sticks. One thing I do know that has changed, as far as... More

I love this place. So yummy. Great service. You can get the nonstop soup. This is amazing place. I enjoy it. It's light in there like a veranda atmosphere. I'd highly reccomend tips place.

Restaurants I believe are put to the test when there is an inrush of customers wanting to be fed. In my opinion Olive Garden did not pass the test. Do they care? I have no idea. I wil go back but only in a normal day. Not on a special Day like Mother's Day or Father's Day. Salad was still... More

It's a bit ironic that the Olive Garden is very stingy with olives in their salad. The family style salad is great, and the bread sticks are very good. The entrees are also quite tasty. My only knock on the place is that there is a frequent long wait for a table.

Server knew the menu, helped me decide on what I was getting. Food arrived not too fast but right on time, right after some salad and bread sticks! Environment is great for couples or families with or without children. Dalene was an awesome server.
