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

Enjoy melt in your mouth bread sticks dipped in their delcious Alfredo sauce. Very nice selection of tasty soups. I like the Zuppa Tuscana. Soup, salad and bread sticks for lunch is a great value. Pasta dinners are wonderful. We visit often for family get together and parties. They don't take reservations for any parties on weekends but will still... More

Never have been a big fan of Olive Garden...Kids like the fake italian food. Went there to appease them and it was so dirty they even commented. We were seated next to a built in wine rack between rooms and the dust was thick as can be on rack and bottles. Commented to waitress and she blew it off. Food... More

Ordered it a few days in advance and had a some last minute changes, Olive Garden staff and manager handled it great and even helped me get it to my SUV. The food... More

Great stop for lunch, good service and they had some good gluten free choices which are difficult to find in most restaurants that specialize in breads and pasta!
