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.

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.

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
