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

When I stay nearby traveling for business, I usually eat here one of the nights during my stay. Consistent good food but it's the staff that make it a nice visit. Great service!

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

Nothing to crow about or complain about. Service was a little slow to get food ordered but after that everything was ok.

Can't beat their soup and salad lunch that includes fresh baked breadsticks. It is unlimited so if go away hungry it's your own fault. Can choose from several different soups and their house salad is yummy!

We were in the area and decided to stop for dinner. Saw other restaurants, but when my hubby saw The Olive Garden, he made the decision to go, based on TV ads we'd seen. We were NOT disappointed. We were seated immediately in a side room by a window. He ordered soup and a salad, and I actually ordered an... More

Just a great time and a great meal at our local Olive Garden and kudos to the staff for making 'call ahead seating' WORK!!! Not only was our service extremely good, the food was delicious and the experience simply pleasant.

Family of 5. We had an appetizer and each had dinners. It ended up to be a lot of food. The service was great, very helpful in suggestions, knowledge of menu and attentive with drinks and follow up service. The place was very busy, but not enough to wait for a table. It was a Sunday brunch time. Would go... More
