Very good Toscana Soup

My brother, wife and I all ordered Toscana soup and salad for $11.99 each. This is my wife's favorite soup. My brother liked it a lot as well. I had a glass of the Coppola Cabernet Sauvignon for $8.50, which was pretty good. My brother had his favorite beverage, a club soda with limes for... read more

first and for most the food was good the only thing that was not good was the service I feel like if people did their job it would be perfect.

Our grandson is seven and our granddaughter is four and we wondered if they would be good if we tried to go to the Olive Garden Restaurant. We were so pleased. The restaurant had a wonderful little pamphlet which had those modern stickers that kids love so much. The kids had to match the stickers with the picture and, of... More

Went here recently for lunch and was amazed at the speed and friendly service. The salad was delicious and huge and more than enough for one person. The breadsticks were fresh and amazing. I ordered the lunch special which was 3 choices on one plate. I had the eggplant, Alfredo and lasagna and each one was absolutely delicious. The food... More

They don't take reservations so we were worried about a luncheon for 12. They were very friendly and set up a table for us. No problem. They were willing to give us separate checks which was really helpful. The food is excellent and plentiful. Try it, you'll like it!

My daughter and I go here once a year. We always seem to get the same things each time, but the choices are all good. Food is warm, fast, friendly servers. And they bring all the bread sticks you want!

Located about 8 minutes from motel. On a main street that was easy to locate. The food and service was good - as expected and consistent for Olive Garden.

From The Salad to those Breadsticks, OG always has great I-Tie favs. This time had the new Citris Chicken. YUM!! Their menu is spansive, and they are changing it up constantly & seasonally. It's not a budget restaurant, not too pricy, although It won't set you back too much. Enjoy!
