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

We visit this restaurant and the quality of the food was average, with nothing special. They offer sample wine that was terrible, while the server was great and very helpful.

We always went to Olive Garden for our Italian night dinners. I just don't have the patience for it anymore. Parking around the restaurant is absolutely Atrocious!!! You gave to wait at least almost always over 30 minutes for a seat. The waiting space is horrible...always crowded. Food is ok...sometimes comes out cold. I think the quality of the food... More

The food was excellent, the servers on both occasions were friendly and efficient. I did take away one bar from the rating because on both occasions they were out of an item on the menu.
