Once you pass the front door it's getting good.

We came here on Sunday. Norma was our hostess. I've never met hostess as impolite as she was. We were waiting to be seated when we found out that few couples who came after us were already seated. Norma was ok with stretching her pants up in front of customers. When I reminded her about us, no... read more

This location was worse than pathetic. Meals came oit wrong repeatedly. Store smells like mold and mildew. Requested management's help to no avail. Will not return.

I have been to many Olive Gardens, and usually love the food. We stopped in for lunch. I ordered the Tour of Italy Sampler, and my wife ordered the portobello mushroom ravioli. There was very little sauce on the ravioli and only about six pieces. The breadsticks that I usually love were hard and not warm. My sampler was like... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. The salad alone makes it a favorite, not to mention all of their other delicious selections.

The Title says it all, you can never go wrong with Soup and Salad Lunch. Of all of the olive Gardens we have been too lately this one had the freshest breadsticks, which is really nice for a change. Our Server was Luke, he was attentive and on top of everything. Really great server, Very polite. We are not locals... More

We ordered simple fettuccine Alfredo and salads. We ordered over the phone for a to go order. We expected and assumed to get what we had ordered especially coming from The Olive Garden. When I opened my pasta, there was no joke only a spoonful of sauce right in the middle of the pasta. It was not enough at all... More

While this restaurant chain is a little pricey, their selection is very good and the taste usually does not disappoint. We enjoyed our meal at this location and our server Krista was attentive and did a very good job. Entrees we had were the Cucina Mia with sundried tomato sauce (not a marinara) and shrimp and the second person ravioli... More

You never leave hungry. Fill up on salad and bread rolls and good Italian food. I love the veal parmesian. Friendly staff and quick service. Sunday after church you better get there early. Located at a congested intersection next to Wal-Mart.

The last two times (within the last month) that we have eaten at this Olive Garden there is a certain smell as you walk through the front doors. NO, it is not a good smell either...it smells like a urinal (at least according to my husband). We went yesterday and the smell was still there and the floors in the... More
