Olive Garden have great food and prices! I come here with my family and also order constantly for my customers. They have an excellent catering menu with affordable prices. A good tip before go, is to check in the application Retailmenot for coupons, they usually have coupons available for both: dining in the restaurant and online orders.

Michelle was a fantastic server and the food was delicious. I wouldn't expect any less as far as quality goes but Michelle made the lunch experience memorable. She knew her stuff and had a great sense of humor. I definitely enjoyed it.

They have the best soups! I like the all you can eat soup and salad because you can order different types of soups and they all taste great! Service was slow during lunch because of short staff.
