The food was really good but I think over priced. Pleasant decoration and - of course - very clean. The service was good. Great chairs, with wheels so you can roll front and back. They have to learn to make a good espresso, but then again it's USA and not Rome...

My husband and I decided to go to this Olive Garden last night. It was busy but we were seated right away. While the hostess was kind of abrupt, our server was Wonderful. G.G., our server, was right "on top" of things, very attentive. Our appetizer came out in great time, and our salad was served, and then we waited,... More

We decided to give this Olive Garden a try so I could share our experience. Arriving around 4:30PM we had to wait a few minutes for a booth. This is a very large Olive Garden and does a good business. Our server Amanda M, was very attentive to our every request and kept the fresh breadsticks and soup coming and... More

Yes, maybe a bit better than other OGs we've tried in the past. A busy Saturday evening and we had to wait about a 1/2 hour. The food was worth the wait. Still reasonably priced for Italian food, but increasing all the time..One knock would be their lack of asking if we wanted more salad. So this OG is better... More
