I have never been a big fan of Olive Garden but I must say that after the fire that burned the first one down the new restaurant has been updated and I really like it. I am still not too crazy about some of their food but their salad and bread and sauce is to die for. I know a... read more

Went to eat supper with my brother and his son. Server was great the food was simply nasty. We started out with Bruschetta. Not a lot of marinade and when I say barely any mozzerella, I mean I am surprised the kitchen manager would send that out. Fettuccini was average and that was the best thing on our plates. The...

The wait is long to get in if you go at a busy time. Luckily we went after the lunch rush so we got a seat quickly. The food was great and I recommend the white chocolate miniature dessert. Just enough sweetest for the end of the delicious meal. The wine list is good. The server made some good recommendations.

Greeted by friendly staff. Offered wine samples. Opted for cocktails, and they were excellent. Signature salad was perfect. Fresh bread. We had assortment of appetizers. All satisfying. Clean , newly built restaurant. Perfect sitting, even loved the background music. Excellent choice for a chain restaurant.

We were returning from a family vacation and stopped at their Pecanland Mall location for Father's Day. This restaurant has a modern interior and layout that is completely different and FAR better than the usual "open the front doors and feel cramped" layout that we have all come to know. Service was solid, timely and the food was prepared very... More

We were escorted to our seat by a very pleasant host. Of course we had to report to the manager about one of the employees smoking at the front entrance. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu.

It's a chain so you know what you're going to get but the bread was way way way too salty (and I enjoy a good amount of salt) I brought it up with the waitress and she said there's nothing they can do about it, she was there to take order and drop food off and that's it. No conversation... More
