Disclaimer. Calling Olive Garden "Italian" is like calling Taco Bell "Mexican." Sorry, that's just the way it is. That being said, our latest experience was above average.

This is just an average chain restaurant that folks seems to love. Always a wait, always noisy inside (and stay away from the back room-they seem to make it a kid area & it can be quite loud). The food is good, perhaps better than"ok", but certainly not worth waiting a long time for. If you want true Italian fare,... More

I did not enjoy the food; I found most dishes overflowing with cream, butter and other rich ingredients. When food is so excessively rich it is hard to distinguish flavors hidden among all those sauces. I gues its just not my thing, although many other people seem to like it.

RESERVATIONS! Call in advance for reservations , especially if you are going to have kids with you for dinner on the weekends as there is ALWAYS a long wait for a table. Food is always good, never had a problem, friendly waiters. Not exactly the healthiest joint, but if your going out for Italian, might as well go for it.

Olive garden is ALWAYS worth the wait. My mouth is watering just thinking back to it! The only thing I would have wanted, is the beautiful golden breadsticks! I had the classic ravioli and I wish I lived in an Olive Garden, its so very delicious and you can't go wrong! The servings are so good and the leftovers are... More

This is a chain restaurant with generally fatty, salty, tasty foods. The wait staff is pleasant, though sometimes you get new employees who fumble their way through your order. The ambiance is pleasant, but at peak hours it's noisy with music competing with families. The prices are moderate for what you get. Long long waits on weekends here.

Easy to find, lots of parking. Stafe was attentive and pleasant. The food was okay. My experience with Olive Gardens is thay can be hit & miss with their food. This one was somewhere in between. Filled me up nicely though.
