Waitress....Michelle..a professional! Food....yummy and plenty! Mom and I asked to share one dish...the food came already separated onto two plates...enough for three people! Mom asked to take the left over extra salad dressing home and she brought a container for that PLUS two more to go dressings. Thank you Olive Garden! So good and consistent!

Service was fast and friendly. Lunch portions are tasty but small for the price. My chicken breast portion was smaller than child’s hand. Same apply for endless salad. First serving was really small. We did request new serving several times. But if you come for the conversation with good friends, none of that really matter. Just don’t come too hungry.

Hosted a birthday party with hopes it would prove exceptional. Regretfully it was very loud and our area crowded. Our server was very kind but seemingly over worked as everything arrived late. When comparing the food and service with the price I paid we don't plan to return.

While I am not a huge fan of most Italian cuisine, my wife and step-daughter are. My step-daughter, Kari, wanted to go there for her birthday last month ... so we went. The endless salad and bread sticks were a definite plus although I'm not sure which nights they do that. The house wines were excellent and complimented our meals... More

Several times we have to send back wine glasses because they are dirty with lip marks from previous guest on them. Female manager is very RUDE! You either get a really good server but most of the time you get a bad one. This place should send there people to Boise to train!!

I've eaten at this location many times and it's always consistently good. Pasta is cooked properly, breadsticks are soft and garlicky, salad is good also. As a Make A Wish wish granter, this location also helped us out with a wish sendoff party. The management team secured one of the family dining rooms for us, and let us decorate. They... More

I am not an Olive Garden fan but we were friends that wanted to go. We were seated and our very friendly server Emily came and got our drink orders. She did a good job but we did have to remind her of thinks we requested. I had a 1/2 Chicken Parmesan sand which was ok a little over cooked.... More

We love to order the Olive Garden special which consists of unlimited breadsticks, unlimited bowls of their special salad and unlimited bowls of 3-4 different kinds of soup. You will enjoy your meal and will not go away hungry.
