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

Ding, the microwave is done and here is your walmart frozen italian american dinner. My already low expectations of OG were taken down a notch. Sorry just don't have anything good to say other than the sevice was good.

Managers need to train staff better in order to handle a large group. Waited almost 2 hours for food to come up because this restaurant and kitchen staff cant handle the amount of people they have coming in. Was offered free desserts only for them to bring out frozen desserts. This Olive Garden has went down the hole and seems... More

I enjoyed my visit, almost everything went well. The one small issue was the coffee ordered, it was very weak. I noticed the menu had a few updates to it, so I tried the seafood bordetto and was very pleased. The waiter was pleasant and helpful. I'm not a big fan of Olive Garden, but my wife is. Normally, I... More

In relation to Olive Garden's across the Panhandle especially The Olive Garden on Panama City Beach, this location is not pleasing. Immediately upon entering it's a decent establishment but as you filter back to seating You can see that the restaurant is in need of a restoration. It seems every place that I have sat at this restaurant has an... More
