Quick service, nice meal

Olive Garden has a nice lunch menu with smaller portions including unlimited soup or salad. We chose the salad which is dressed with a very nice Italian parmesan dressing. The waitress was friendly and did a great job of looking after our table without being pushy. Our pasta dishes were all well... read more

There are very few places to eat here that are not fast food. I was not expecting much but the food was quite good. I ordered a shrimp and clam dish over wide pasta. The server told me that it was spicy and she was not kidding. The first few bites were kind of a shock to my mouth but... More

Been eating here for 20 years. Have never been disappointed in their food. Their service isn't always the best, but that happens with most restaurants occassionaly.

I drove over 25 miles to come here because it has always been a great experience but today was ridiculous. The moment we walked into the place we were slapped in the face by the cold. We asked our server if we could move because it was freezing she responded oh no its not cold I don't think it is!... More

We waited 20 minutes after sitting at our table. Staff looked at us and kept walking by without saying a word. Other staff just stood by and talked to each other. Worst service ever at an Olive Garden

Our group gathered for a Birthday celebration on 03/08/2015. At 3:30 we arrived to meet with some family members. We were told that our wait would be between 1 and 1.5 hours. Two hours later we were still waiting. Sunday is a busy day for this location. Never have I been given so many lame excuses. My wife rather likes... More
