While staying overnight in the area we opted to go to Olive Garden because of its reliable quality. We were not disappointed. The 3 of us were seated promptly and greeted quickly by our server. Always enjoy the breadsticks. And can't go wrong with their salad. Usually take most of entree home after filling up with Pasta e Fagioli soup... More

My wife and I went to the Olive Garden in Dover, and for the second consecutive and LAST time, we had horrible dinners. On the first of these two trips, I ordered chicken parmesan. When it came, the chicken was absolutely burnt. I don't mean slightly overcooked. It was burnt black. I told the waitress. She ordered a second one.... More

We stopped here for an early dinner. I started with the Zuppa Toscana, a potato and sausage soup which came steaming hot (great on a brisk day) and then I had the Braised Beef & Tortelloni which come in a great Marsala sauce. My Wife Started with the salad ,in our opinion they have the best salads period, next she... More

This restaurant is typical of a USA "Chain Restaurant". On this occasion it was on an Italian theme. Food was good but not great. Value was good but not great. Service was good but not great. Menu was good but not great. Nothing to shout about but then nothing to complain about. I would eat there again but don’t imagine... More

Our waitress was very friendly and efficient. I was with my aged father and step-mother, who were challenging at times, but our waitress accommodated them beautifully. The food was great and the breadsticks plentiful. Great dinner!

Usually Olive Garden is pretty good but for some reason tonight I was able to experience what a ghost must feel like when it goes out. Between the two waitress working the section not one even acknowledge the fact that we were there. But no fear Heather V. Came to the rescue. Once we moved sections we were taking care... More

Me and my Wife have been going a couple times a month to this location for years. My Wife always gets the soup, salad and breadsticks while I get a steak or chicken entree. The food had always been very good but over the last year it has started to suffer. The salads have become bare with important elements such... More

My friends and I go here often because the food is great and the service very pleasant and efficient. The Lunch special of soul or salad with the never ending can't be beat. For dinner I often try the new specials. I haven't been disappointed yet. Actually, when I travel I try to find Olive Garden because I know I... More

All my favorites are on the menu. The salad and breadsticks are awesome too. If you don't know what you want the Tour of Italy is a pretty good choice. The bar knows how to make a drink correctly.
