We seldom choose a chain restaurant in a market with great local and downtown atmosphere locations. Service was great by Sharon, manager was a drip - no personality, no smile, looked bored - but we felt like cattle being prodded along with no atmosphere or ambiance. Won't be back often,v maybe once a year to remind why we don't have... More

Service was great from Shelly. Got seated immediately (we got there at 11:30 a.m. on a Friday). Had the unlimited soup, salad and breadstick special ($7.99). With 4 choices of soups to choose from, hard to find one we didn't like and we tried a bit of all 4 of them. There was certainly much more on the menu to... More

Had a late dinner with a friend here last night. The food was great (as always) and the service was fabulous! By far the best server I've had in a long time. Nice and quiet atmosphere. Great for chit chat and a leisurely meal.

I took a group of 11 here for lunch and we all paid for our own meals. When balancing my account I noticed they had charged me nearly twice as much as my meal cost. I have made three calls to Olive Garden to get a refund for the over charge with no luck and no apology. In fact, instead... More

One of my favorite places to eat in Dubuque. I can't get enough of the bread sticks and salad. My wife and I try to make it to Olive Garden at least once a month and we always go home with leftovers because the portions are so big. It makes for a great lunch the next day.

My wife and I had two very good meals at this Dubuque location! We are seldom disappointed at this national chain, so we count on visiting when traveling. The waiter was very courteous and the restaurant is conveniently located to nationally rated name hotels.

What can you say about industrialized chain resrurants? Salad, breadsticks, pasta? All good and inline with the dozens of others I've visited. Staff were very nice; all good.

Great for quick carry-out food and its good. Called order in a few minutes before closing time and they had it ready when I got there. Very friendly stall and good price / value.

We stayed at the Fairfield Inn by Marriott located across the parking lot from Olive Garden. Lunch was a no-brainer. We always get the soup and salad with breadsticks. Food was excellent and the service was better than usual, very attentive and fast. We were in and out for under $20 with tip and in less than 45 minutes. Great... More
