I like to go there for the all you can eat soup, salad and bread sticks for lunch. The food is always good. They have raised the price since the last time I was there a few months ago. Also, they have implemented a pay by credit card at your table. I did not care much for it as it... read more

They left the celery, cherry tomato, pepperoni slice, pearl onion off my Bloody Mary! I always expected that stuff, I paid the same but they took the fixings off. When I asked about it, she said the manger made the decision?? Ok then, charge less without the extras. 8 bucks+ also my wife's wine 9 oz glass 9.25 for basically... More

We didn't have much of a wait - which was nice. Not thrilled to be walked past lots of empty tables to be seated right next to the kitchen door. Our waitress appeared promptly and asked us if we wanted to sample a wine, we declined. We gave our order and she disappeared. Another person dropped off our meal and... More

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.

We went to this restaurant on the last night of our holiday before having to head home as our sons request. We had about a 15 minute wait and we had went a little later as it was very busy earlier in the evening. We all had excellent meals and loved the salad and the house dressing. We all enjoyed...

We all know the salad and breadsticks are great so I won't go on and on about it. I was a bit disappointed the bread was hot or warm but I quickly got over it. I ordered the choose your own pasta.

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.
