One of the best Olive Gardens.

One of the best Olive Gardens I've been to. Unlimited bread stick and salad good as always. Ravioli di Portobello and Chicken Scampi excellent. Outstanding service. Visiting with out of town family we were not rushed even after the empty plates were removed. Very relaxing atmosphere.

This has to be one of the oldest in the chain. Located in a not so nice strip mall. Seemed to want to pack everyone in one small room. Service was nothing special and the food was typical OG. Felt like we were being rushed. Being a tourist the GPS got us here. If passing through again would skip this... More

This review would be rated much higher possibly if we may have had different meals. Our total bill was $43.00 for two meals and a glass of wine and one ice tea. Our server was Wayne. He had great table skills and I would recommend him highly. As this was Valentine's Day- 2015 we wanted to have a special meal.... More

We were pleasantly greeted and seated immediately. Our server, Josh, was very efficient and courteous. Our food arrived quickly and was correctly placed in front of each of us. (9) He returned to ask if everything was to our satisfaction and cleared away all empty plates several times. We will definitely return again and ask for Josh.

Unlimited bread sticks & salad, what more could you want! Cavatappi w/meat sauce was my choice and had plenty for lunch the next day. My husband is a spaghetti kind of guy and said the meat sauce was very good. We haven't been to an Olive Garden yet that didn't deliver with good food & service.

Regretfully it has been more than two years since we last visited Olive Garden Restaurants. We visited our local in Panama City-excellent meal! All food came as expected-Quality for a fair price. Service was excellent. What surprised me the most is as a chain they are 'trying' to be innovated to offer Fresh/Quality meals.The meal selections offer a variety of... More

Had a wonderful meal here. The structure is a little dated, but other than that everything was wonderful. Blakely was a lovely server and we couldn't have asked for better service. The manager was gracious and I just had to tell him about our service. Olive Garden is not even my favorite restaurant, but this one was awesome. The food... More
