Just stopped by to purchase a gift card and was taken aback by the great smells. So, I decided to have a glass of wine and a sampler plater of stuffed mushrooms, cheese sticks, and broccoli. All were perfectly served and prepared to perfection. Can't wait to return…with friends!

Always a good place to visit if you are in the mood for some endless soup and salad with bread sticks. Prices the best at the lunch hours. If you leave hungry, it's your own fault. Unfortunately, parking is probably the worst thing about a visit here, however, you can park in the lots at Regency Shopping center and just... More

A very good menu. I love their soup & salad for lunch or dinner. My favorite soup is gnocchi in a white creamy soup. Love their bread sticks.

Have not been to the Olive Garden for many years. I must say this time I was pleasantly surprised. We had to wait about 5 minutes for a table. Once seated service was excellent, food was very good and price was reasonable. Would come back again.

Alone and eating near hotel. The single seat at the bar worked instead of waiting. Bar help were pleasant, and food was predictable--as ordered, fresh, and served with a smile. Did not expect otherwise.

Okay no matter what area I'm at all the olive gardens are the same. The one thing that stuck out to me was the smells. It was humid and musty smelling inside. The food was okay and the service was good.

Ranged in age from 5 to 91, and all enjoyed the meal and the relative quiet setting around our table for 9. Only snag was that Dad's meal came out 15 minutes after everyone else's. The manager made it right by comping his meal AND his choice of dessert.

You can't beat the value of this lunch special. I think I paid like $8 for all you can eat soup, salad and bread. Unbelievably fresh and the soup and breadsticks are hot. It's Olive Garden...a simple, affordable restaurant that doesnt try to be more than it is. If you're hungry, and want "fresh," then go to this restaurant.
