Plenty of Olives in this Garden

Good food at a reasonable price together with great service. For as little as $6.99,soup or salad (all you can eat) and a small pasta dish plus bread sticks. Price and quality are hard to beat.

We all enjoyed our family dinner. The place was well lit and the table was big enough for all our dishes. Our server Jojo was very nice and attentive. Our food portions were perfect and delicious. As always the bread sticks with the Alfredo sauce are our favorite.

They may change the names of the dishes but overall, it doesn't change anything. The best part has been and will continue to be the salad and sometimes the bread sticks if they do them right. Pre-portioned industrial Italian food is all it ever was and all it ever will be.

We didn't have to wait for seating and this was a delightful change. We had the appetizers for our meal because of their size and our wanting to have a lighter fare. They were awesome. The flavored lemonades were really delicious and our waiter was very attentive, polite and timely in taking care of us.

If ever there was AVERAGE Italian food, this is it. The food NEVER looks like the photos on their point-of-sale materials. NEVER looks like their commercials. It's a home economics cooking class gone bad. Sauce with no flavor. Serious need for seasoning. Perfect for the older crowd who can't eat anything with spice or else they need Tums. The salad...

By that I mean, altho the menu keeps being updated, the quantity of food on one's dish gets smaller and the prices keep rising. Even the salad tends to be mostly lettuce. I will, however, complement Olive Garden on the variety of soups being offered.

I went here this week for lunch and had a very pleasant experience. We were sat right away and our server was very prompt and polite. She seemed a bit nervous and possibly new but that had no negative affect on our service. Our food was excellent and we received refills and boxes as soon as we were ready. I... More
