Not fond of menu changes

Who takes an item like fettuccine alfredo with grilled chicken off the dinner menu? There were lots of other disappointing changes in the common dishes one expects to see on a menu in an Italian restaurant. I really do understand updating your menu and keeping competitive. But aren't there just... read more

We ate here after a day at the Quilt Festival. WE were seated quickly and our salad and bread came up quickly. We had a full meal, were not rushed and enjoyed the large menu. It is a huge restaurant that can accomodate many hungry folks and the rooms are separated so you don't feel that you are in a... More

My wife, daughter and I ate there last night for Mother's Day. It was a nice, relaxing meal. Our drink orders were taken almost as we were seated. The appetizer came out relatively quick and hot. The food was very good and the service above average. We will return.

We were surprised that there was no waiting line at 6:00 PM on a Friday night like there used to be here in recent years. First time we've been here since the new menus were introduced with fewer selections but there appeared to be some new items with some economical combo specials. We tried one of them and were very...

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

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 matter we were... 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
