Dinner date with granddaughter sure was expensive, but she loves the food. At least their were left-overs for the next day. Kudoos to the servers for expitiding our order on this visit since we had an important event to attend.

The Olive garden had good options regarding bottomless salad or soup if you took those options, but all the food seemed highly processed and pre-cooked. It may not have been but that is the impression you get. Our server was awesome.

My husband and I wanted to try something different, we are usually Sushi ,Chinese or Buffet customers. Olive Garden was a nice surprise. I'm not sure which was more pleasant, the food or service. I can only describe the staff....from bus people to waitress/hostess as "crisp". Uniforms were neat, meals presented at just the right pace, the hostesses were friendly... More

This Olive Garden was not as good as the others we have eaten at. The food was bland. I got my standby dish and had to add salt to taste anything, never had to do that before. The service was a little imposing at first then non-existent after we were seated. Two or three servers were gathered around an elderly... More

We stopped in here for dinner after shopping at the local mall. The service was great, and so was the food, endless salad with endless bread, soup, then main course. Wow we could not finish it all.Just too much food, but great.

I went on a Sunday afternoon with my Family. We had 11 people at the table. The service was excellent and fast for a large group. The one dish that didn't come out with the rest, the chef came out and explained why it was going to be later than the rest.

Delicious fresh food. I had one of the lighter lunch options (citrus chicken and roasted vegetables) and my husband had an Italian flatbread, both with unlimited salad and breadsticks. We then shared Italian doughnuts and raspberry dip, followed by a latte. We were not disappointed with our choices. The waitress had a lovely personality and did a great job. Ten... More

Olive Garden is an overpriced chain that presents itself as a higher end restaurant than what service it can deliver. Disorganized wait staff, long wait, pedestrian Americanized Italian cuisine, they forgot to bring silverware, wine was served as a sampler which was nice, but I had ordered a simple glass which they forgot. Then after ordering a bottle, it took... More
