we go as a group from church a lot, and really enjoy it so much! We don't have to wait very long even with a big group.

Always great to eat at Olive Garden. The seasonal menu's are delicious along with the new appetizers. The Branfon location can be quite hectic during weekends because of the Movie theatre and Mall traffic especially approaching summer. Monday Tues or Wed nights are ideal for great service and no wait times. Service is always good on busy nights too. Buy... More

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
