A chain is a chain

A chain is a chain and I didn't have high expectations, further, it's been years since I ate at an Olive Garden - and the appeal for this kind of dining is lost on me. The food was fine, the pricing reasonable, our server was friendly and attentive - but a chain is a chain. Most concerning was... read more

My wife has an allergy to onions and when we advised the server of this, she went out of her way to ensure that we did not have any onions in her meal. She even had the general manager come and talk to us about what was in the various food items we were ordering. This added service was greatly... More

I have not been to the OG in years. We went here while staying the night at a nearby hotel. First, they now have these little touch screen TVs at every table. You can order food, play games, pay, etc. I don't know if they are trying to eventually replace staff with these, but I thought they were very tacky... More

Give me french fries and fry sauce, you can keep all that pasta and those smilely waitresses , what are they thinking? My sisters dragged me in here a couple of times and after an hour I was ready to leave. Really I think I even had to pay my part of the bill.

So happy IF has an Olive Garden. Our waitress was great, food was good, and the we didn't wait long for our food to come out. Only downside, the bathroom needed a good cleaning. I don't know why restaurants forget to give them attention but a messy bathroom really does take away from your overall experience.

Great location right off the freeway with good parking. Food was usual Italian fair with wine and beer available. Shrimp parmesan was mild and creamy. Shrimp were plentiful and tender. Tuscan soup had plenty of potatoes, kale, and sausage. Despite the hedge fund owners wanting more profit by only cleaning the carpets once a month, our tile floor was very... More

We stayed at the Fairfield Inn right next to the Olive Garden. Exhausted from driving, it was a convenient stroll, the food was great as always, our sassy server Ashley delivered impeccable service!

We had a good meal last visit. Of course the salad and breadsticks are a great staple. But Olive Garden has lots of food food options. The service is normally above average and it is a great place to catch up with family or friends.

Dinner was excellent as well as the service. We did the 2 for $25 dinner and it was well worth the price

We love going here for a quick stop and a good meal of all you can eat soup, salad, and bread sticks. We don't have to wait long before getting our food and we get great service.
