Beats Carraba's hands down.

I have eaten here for many years. The place is clean and the staff is almost always polite. The food is good and reasonably priced for a sit-down restaurant. It has much more flavor than the stuff they serve at Carraba's.

The promotion is over but the price cannot be beat. Buy one, take one was running during the end of March and the first part of April. When you look at the food you get for the money on this promotion you feel guilty when the check arrives at the table. We also wanted to try a new dish at... More

This restaurant was an ok place to eat. The food was good but the staff seemed to be a bit to pushy trying to get us to buy larger portions or their specials.

we found the food and service to be a cut above the average Olive Garden. Meals were all delivered hot and at the same time. We did have one problem when a wait person tripped and spilled something on me, and the Manager was there in a flash with cleaning supplies. We all disregarded it - things happen, and finished...

Always Delicious and consistent. This certain establishment we have never had a bad experience. We've gone on busy nights and slow nights and received solid service. For the price point you really can't ask for a better value. You get a huge salad and breadsticks included with meal. Saves from the wallet having to be opened for appetizers, you will... More

We came here for our anniversary dinner. Although it was a Thursday evening, the parking lot that Olive Garden shares with Red Lobster was completely packed - we had to drive around for about 10 minutes to get a parking spot. We wondered how long the wait would be inside, but even though the restaurant was very busy, we were... More

Very Tasty italian food. All the food was great and fresh. The Salad was great and unlimited and the bread was soft. This is a very good franchise location. Would recommend it if you are in the area. We also gave them a coupon from our phone from retailmenot and received a discount with no questions asked.

Love to order the soup and salad at lunch. Normally it is very good. Sometimes like today the taste was off. Service can be slow and hard to get in and out of quickly during lunch break.

Our expirence at olive garden started at 3:10pm for a late lunch/early dinner. The interior of this restaurant appears to be updated, and no longer featuring a garden theme. Our server treated us with a smile at 3:17pm and we ordered drinks. Delivered at 3:20 with salad at 3:24. I have to say olive garden always has the best salad... More
