We have visited this restaurant several times while staying at a local hotel - visiting Lego Land. Sometimes it's fine and everything works well. Other times, well .... let's just say one wonders if it's the same restaurant. The food is fine - it's what one expects from The Olive Garden. It's the service that varies so dramatically. On one...

Love the bread at the Olive Garden, have not been to one in years. The food was good, I would never call it excellent (the pasta was ok) but overall a solid choice for a night out with friends and family.

Choosing a chain restaurant usually gives one a feeling that at least minimum of expectations will be met. We weren't looking for out of this world but at the very least average to good. That did not happen. We were out, we were tired and didn't wish to cook upon returning home so Olive Garden was the "safe/known" choice. My... More

The food was just like every other Olive Garden, but what stood out here was the great service from the staff.

Atmosphere was good as well as the service. I enjoyed my food. I would go back. I had the soup and salad. On both items I was offered as much Parmesan cheese as I wanted.

I recently went here with my best friend, her parents, and a bunch of her other friends for her birthday. We were able to make a reservation ahead of time so we quickly got a table. Our waiter was very friendly and honest about all of the menu options. He was very attentive to our table as far as bringing... More

On occassion we get together with some very special friends for an early lunch. We go early to beat the noon rush.They like to visit the Olive Garden in Winter Haven, they are frequent guests, so much so they have instant recognition. They are strict vegetarians and my wife is gluten intolerant, so it's a wonderful place to have your... More
