When on vacation we try to find some of the chain restaurant that our kids like. There's always something for everyone at Olive Garden. I'm personally addicted to the salad and breadsticks. This Olive Garden had a very short wait. Our waiter was obviously new and was trying so hard but was so slow. We didn't make a fuss because... More

Stopped in with family (5 of us), for some yummy italian. Our waitress was so amazing, cared about what we ordered, offered great suggestions, made sure to ask if we wanted refills on anything before wasting anything. Food was simply excellent,and everyone walked out with their top pant button undone :) was soo good.

Nice facility with lots of parking on N. Federal Hwy. It's a chain, and that's great; I know what I want. I"ll have soap , salad, breadsticks, tea. Great staff. Cost: under$10.

We waited 15 minutes to be acknowledged and it was only because I asked a server if there was anyone to assist us to which he replied "the section you're in is for a waiter who called out, guess I can help you". When we finally gout our meal it was cold and tasted... More

Stopped in with the family about 9pm. Not too crowded. Seated right away. It took almost 10 minutes for server to greet us. Took all our orders - drinks and food- we didn't order appetizers. Another 5-8 minutes to get water and breadsticks. The adult meals came out before the kids. The soup was cold. About 30 minutes after being... More

I recently ate at this Olive Garden with a very large group, 45 I believe. Our kids were a bit rowdy, all 20 of them. The staff handled it in stride and did a great job accommodating our group.

Went here as we had been on previous visits, . While the food got worst , the service was careless - the wrong plate was served and the bill at the end did not include the voucher we had - corrected only after we challenged. Still expensive for the poor food served .The servers let you know that they are... More
