Lovely decor

This is your typical Olive Garden-food-wise, but our server was great and it's really a beautiful restaurant.

I choose Olive Garden mostly at lunchtime for the soup, salad and breadsticks lunch. If you don't leave well satisfied, you have nobody to blame but yourself.

A short distance from my motel. EZ access and food was excellent as always. Quick service and friendly, too.

The staff was friendly, food was prepared in a timely manner. Wait staff was attentive and not over-bearing. Was offered a free dessert. Clean restaurant and the employees and management seem to click very well.

We go to Olive Gardens everywhere, and as usual the food was great, the value is very good, and the service was - well, this time around it was amusing. We had a relatively new server, a young man who couldn't have been older than 18, butchered the word Chianti, but tried SO very hard to make us happy by... More

Good, solid Italian fare. They have unlimited soup or salad, which in itself is quite filling. Freshly baked bread sticks are great to have with the soup. Main course is ideally portioned. My favorite is chicken marsala, which gets its name since it is cooked in marasla wine. Its served with side portions of baked potatoes & sauteed mushrooms. They... More

Olive Garden is one of my favorite restaurants. Recently my husband & I stopped in just for a light lunch. We decided to do just the "All you can eat soup & salad" as neither one of us were very hungry. Our server only had 2 other tables & couldn't even keep up. Apparently she knew the 2 at one... More

Normally we are a huge fans of our local Olive Garden. But our last two visits let us down. We went here later on a Sunday evening. It was not crowded and we still had to wait on a table. The area we sat in had a musty odor. Normally they do a wine tasting, but none was offered. We... More

This is a chain restaurant, yes, but management and the wait staff at this one make it stand out. Like many people, we go there for soup, salad & bread sticks at lunch time & if we go in the evening, it's for the delicious ItaIian heavier dishes & wine. This is a well managed, very clean stop. The waitresses... More

We always know that we will have good service and good food when we go to Olive Garden. Even when it's a football weekend in town we manage to get to seats quite quickly. The wait staff is always helpful and very courteous. We are encouraged to take our time and enjoy "talk" time with our friends. Great place to... More
