Olive Garden is not one of my favorite restaurants being they are overpriced. Nine of us went for dinner for a birthday celebration, everyone ordered something different. The service was fantastic, the food served fresh and hot. Olive Garden has the best salad and bread sticks but I hate to pay their prices when I fix pasta quite often at... More

We were seated immediately. Our witress, Sherrill was amazing. She made a quick conversation everytime she checked on us. Food was very good and served as soon as it was ready. Salad good as always. I cant really complain. I would return here just for Sherrill's service.

We had a gift card to use, so went to the Olive Garden despite hearing negative comments about it. We were pleasantly surprised with our experience there. The service was great, food was good, value was good.....no complaints from us! The portions are quite large, especially after having bottomless salad and breadsticks before dinner. It seemed that most people were... More

It was fine. Like a normal Olive Garden. The food was good and the server was very nice. It was close to the motel.

We have eaten at the Olive Garden numerous times and it's always good food. You can't go wrong with salad breadsticks and pasta. What I enjoy about the O.G. Is that they constantly change their menu. The endless pasta bowl goes for a few months then something new comes in. Our last trip there was $9.99, pick your pasta pick... More
