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

Don't expect an amazing meal but the food is edible. General atmosphere is good and it was very busy on our visit. Despite this the service was excellent and attentive. They've got a new menu now, still free breadsticks (taste like cardboard) and salad. Salad was good. Main course pasta dish was lacking flavor, pasta itself was overcooked. Prices seem... More

Your average Olive Garden. Good food at decent prices. Located by the mall area. Nice place for a couple or average size family.

It was a busy place, so I was surprised that the service was so great. Very good food. It was just a bit noisy with lots of small children though.

Always consistently good service, good food, but drinks are ok...a little pricey. We always get the same thing because we like it so much.

Stopped for a late night dinner. The hostess was very friendly and talked with us a bit. We enjoyed that. Our waitress was very patient as we always have a difficult time trying to decide what to order. There are too many menu's presented for choosing a meal. There were 3. The food we ordered was delicious and our waitress... More
