We took daughtet and her friend here for dinner when they came to visit us during a business trip. Horrible. I rarely complain. Pretty understanding person when it comes to hotels and restaurants. But this was the worst service I've had in years. Waitress was hateful. She obviously didn't want to be there. She dumped hot. And I mean hot... More

I ordered a dish called, something like, Chicken Sorrento, which had a lemon honey glaze and was to come with artichokes. My order arrived with broccoli substituted for the artichokes. The artichokes were the deciding factor in ordering this dish. I asked my waitress and she said the chef told her they were out of artichokes and he substituted. I... More

I can only blame myself for the misery I felt when I sat at the table. Why? Well, a logical person would've not entered the doors - if they'd seen the two dirty diapers lying on top of the bushes at the front door. A logical person whould've not sat down when my daughter asked the hostess (who seated us)... More

I normally do not eat at chain restaurants but thought I'd give Olive Garden a try since it's been about 10 years since my last visit. The food was lukewarm and did not taste very well. the wait staff was not very friendly either never filled our drink of during the entire evening. definitely better 10 years ago. If you... More

We ate here while on vacation in Panama City Beach. The food was excellent, and the staff was very good. However, when they brought the salad bowl to the table, even the first one, is was less then half full. The bread was slow coming, but again, the food was very good.

I've found this chain to be one of the most consistent in my travels. I always get the soup and salad selection because I love their salads. Service was good, price is always a little high for the value but at least there are no surprises when walking in.

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
