Very quick service. Very tasty food. Red hot bread smothered in creamy butter, followed by soup and then pasta. Had to take a doggie bag home. Need to go to the gym after that though.

All the soup and salad you can eat, yum! Say no to the breadsticks, they'll get you every time. The wine is a nice bonus!

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.

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
