We went with the grandchildren and everything was terrific

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... read 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!

Nice meal and big portions. In addition you can order unlimmited salad without extra charge. Bread stick are addictive so be careful and save room for your main dish. Smells like restaurant needs some carpet cleaning service ASAP! Notice service was slow.

Dining at a restaurant attached to a mall, you might expect it to take away from your experience, but not here. My GF and I went in on a very busy day after Christmas and were quoted 60 mins for a table, got one in 35. We got drinks at the bar in the meantime. Food was great, service was... More

I was in town to visit with a friend but I hadn't seen in 20 years, I suggested going to the Olive Garden. However, driving a motorhome was very difficult to navigate and locate the restaurant. Usually Olive Gardens are standalone buildings need to have better directions for the location

Located in a mall, we were a little skeptical about eating here. But we were definitely surprised at the incredible service! Greeted and seated with such friendly hostesses! Service was unbelievable. The waiter took our drink and food order and within minutes our food was at our table, hot and delicious! Would totally recommend this particular OG to anyone who... More
