Italian Fare Very Good at This Location

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.

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.

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.

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.
