Pasta...always good

Like any other Olive Garden, the quickness of the food prep and attention of the wait staff are very good.

Recently visited olive garden with my wife. The house salad and breadsticks are always good. Wife had the delicious minestrone soup. I had a generous portion of chicken marsalas and fried potatoes. I think a nice bed of pasta would make a better starch. Wife had a shrimp Primavera. She enjoyed the ample qty of shrimp. Service was fast and... More

Olive Garden provides a consistent menu and quality of food so nothing new there. What was really great at this Olive Garden is the server's customer service which was very friendly and attentive. Frequently checking to ask if everything was satisfactory or if anything was needed.

Whenever I am near an Olive Garden restaurant we drop in for lunch or dinner/supper depends on the time. Love the bellini ice tea, free bread sticks and the pasta. I did find prices seemed much higher than my last visit.

As always, the food was excellent at Olive Garden. Service was a little slow, but the restaurant got extremely busy after we were seated.

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.

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!
