It's been a while since we stopped at a Olive Garden and we were pleased as always with the good food at reasonable prices. BUt what we don't always get is the great service we experienced at this Olive Garden. Way to go wait staff!

This was my first visit to an Olive Garden, and I have to say I was very pleased. Our waitress was very friendly, and the food was very good. Nice experience overall.

We recently dined at Olive Garden when we spent the night in Dubuque while traveling to Michigan. While I seldom eat at chain restaurants, we chose Olive Garden because it was close to our hotel. We were greeted at the door and immediately seated. The hostess radioed ahead so someone could get a high chair for my 15 month old... More

Chicken Fettuccini is the very best! Those home made bread sticks are to die for as well as the freshly made salads.

We ate supper here after a long day of travelling. Olive garden came through with a delicious meal served by a very attentive waitress.

My fiance and I had a good lunch here, we knew what to expect and got great service. After a weekend of sampling new restaurants in Galena, we headed to Dubuque before heading home in WI to do a little shopping. We noticed the Olive Garden and stopped here for lunch. I had the lasanga fritta, which was REALLY good!... More

My husband & I went here for a date night dinner. I have never had such terrible service in my life! We had to wait forever for our dinner then the waiter brought the wrong food! At this point I had enough and walked out! I will never dine here again. I work at a hotel a block away and... More

As with most national chains, its pretty much the same in every town, with slight variations in service. This Olive Garden did not disappoint us, the service was good and the food was what we expected. Tried the Tour of Italy and except for a slightly over cooked chicken parmesan, it was pretty good. Salad and breadsticks flowed, so my... More

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
