Nice Place

This restaurant is always busy which means great food. The service is great and the servers are friendly. The menu has so much to choose from it is hard to make a decision. Great place for a nice family dinner.

I do not live near any Darden restaurants. So, I decided to eat at OG. I sat at the bar because I was alone. It was Happy Hour, I went out of a limb and ordered a Lemoncello Long Island cocktail. Yuck it was undrinkable. Bartender was super attentive and let me sample the house red wine which was not... More

Our server was attentive, engaging, and professional...absolutely! The food was OK. We had lunch, mushroom ravioli, chicken something. Ravioli was barely warm when served, and the ravioli doughy (is that a word). Returned to the kitchen and second plate hot but still just ok. Chicken dish better, but nothing to write more about. We have been here more than once... More

I have to share a small reason why I was at this restaurant in the first place. I brought the wife of a friend to Dover to receive his body from Afghanistan because he was killed over there. Having said that, the night he was flown in, we had a ceremony and then had to find somewhere to eat and... More

Olive garden has always been a favorite of mine. The food is priced just right and they always have new items on the menu. The service is always very good..

This restaurant desperately needs a serious facelift! As soon as you walk in the door, you notice an odor. It smells old and musty. It is definitely not somewhere I want to have a meal. I used to love this Olive Garden and it's sad seeing it go down hill.

I use to love the Olive Garden but the last 2 times we have been there I must say were terrible. On both occasional I ordered the chicken scampi and there were 4 very small chicken tenderloins laying on top of a small bed of angel hair pasta. The sauce was watered down to the point that it was tasteless.... More

Restaurant was pretty good. We had the combination soup and pasta. Which was good but the raspberry lemonade drink was horrible it tasted like they forgot the raspberry lemonade and just put water and ice. Our waitress was cool she suggested we try the peach tea which was good. Oh and the sangria was ok. Overall pretty good for a... More
