Was really disappointed in this OG location. The soup was so thick that it should not have been called soup. Mediocre service. Cold entree. Total disappointment.

Our family was visiting our 96 year-old stepmom in Jackson and needed a restaurant we thought everyone would enjoy. We'd gone to other Olive Gardens before and thought it was a good pick. The service was very good - staff seemed enthusiastic about what they were doing and were reasonably attentive - but half the dishes ordered were on the... More

Stopped in for a quick dinner in the middle of erands. The staff is always friendly, and the salad and bread is always consistant. I enjoyed the Chicken Abruzzi, on a cold and rainy night it was just perfect. The pumpkin cheesecake is also wonderful. The quality has remained constant at this location, but it could use a face lift.

Olive Garden is a great place for the family , they have the endless soup and salad which stands up to their claims. I love the pasta dishes , I also like the take out, I went there and ordered it off the menu and had it in 20 min.

I had ordered the buy one take one plus a movie. The food and take out service was excellent. The confusion was on how to claim the free movie rental from red box. The servers did not even know anything about it. So, the manager had to come over to explain it to me. He was a very pleasant man... More

First of all - they take expired coupons. We had very good food (lasagna with chicken and spaghetti with meat sauce). House wine, Porta Vita Bianco, was close to Pinot Grigio/Chardonnay and also good. Our server was fast and friendly. It's a chain, so nothing that stood out. Endless salad and breadsticks, as usual. Would go again.

This Olive Garden location is in a busy area just off of I-94, but the staff is considerate and friendly, giving guests a break from hectic driving experiences. On this visit, we tried the new chicken meatballs and loved them. More than one meatball per serving, at $2.99 each, is what we expected, but just got one each---a little pricy... More

It has been a while since we have been to the Olive Garden. The soup, salad and bread sticks were very good. We taste tested and decided upon a bottle of the Cavit wine. I had the "Tour of Italy" and my wife had the stuffed chicken marsala. Both were excellent. We had the Zeppoli for for dessert which was... More
