They did a great job serving us all and then leaving us alone to catch up. We were there for 2 hours and they never pressured us to give up the table or move along. Thanks for a great late lunch and time for us all to catch up!

Good, healthy, tasty vegetarian Minestone soup. Dipping bread sticks in the soup and enjoying a big Fat Tire draft in a frozen glass is a very nice treat for me. I occasionally have ravioli for a full "pig out"!

Olive Garden is always good, but the service we received on this particular visit was incredible! Alana was on top of it! Sometimes kids in a group can be dismissed by servers, but Alana was very attentive to not only the adults, but also the kids in our group. Thank you for the great meal and your attention to everyone... More

We all had our favorites for years. They changed their menu and got rid of not one of our favourites but three! What we ate was good, as always, but it wasn't what we wanted or had our hearts set on.

My family and I really like the Olive Garden. It is a good value. The servers are nice and cover well for one another. I appreciate their specials. I do agree that this particular place could use a good update, especially with Belmar so close with so much competition.

This is a chain restaurant so you know what to expect on the menu. It is pretty good Italian food at a reasonable price. Our server was very good. It gets busy on the weekends unless you arrive early. We will return. Plenty of parking & easy to get into lot.n

I used to go here at least once a month, but stopped a couple of years ago. The place was getting a little run down and dated. It has had a makeover which seems to have included an attitude adjustment. Staff was very good. Place is still peaceful where I can quietly read my paper at the bar while eating.... More

We came here for a friend's birthday. Four adults one child. While none of us are obese, we felt a little cramped at the four top where they put us. There was a chair at the end for the child but with appetizers, soups and salads we were overflowing with dishes. To compound the matter they brought out the main... More
