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.

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

Good food, good service. Olive Garden provides you with consistent "Italian" fare. Our server knew the menu well and was able to make suggestions. We really appreciated this.

Our service and quality of the food was good. The meal was typical Olive Garden where you end up with enough left overs to make a second meal later.

Having eaten at countless Olive Gardens over the years, and being a longtime fan of the wonderful Classic Lunch Combo of assorted soups, salad, and breadsticks, it was with great expectations that I tried the Smoked Mozzarella Fonduta. Smoked mozzarella, provolone, parmesan, and romano cheese all combined and oven-baked. I wasn't disappointed. Wow, it packs a huge punch of flavor... More

My wife and I ordered the Lasagna Primavera with Grilled Chicken; somewhat disappointed, i.e., (1) Small serving size similar to what one might expect as an appetizer, and, (2) Had an overcooked texture. Our waitress was very nice; professional and pleasant. We all chuckled at the salad and bread stick servings: one bowl of salad for four adults and two... More
