good service; great food; fair price

I hesitate to review a "chain restaurant" but this is a nicer Olive Garden than many we have been in across the country, and it deserves a separate review. We visited on a Sunday for lunch and were promptly seated in a small room with no other customers (there were plenty of other customers... read more

I always .get the same order at the Olive garden. The service is always great. This restaurant is always great about getting you out in time for an office lunch. A lot of people only have an hour for lunch. The Olive Garden understands this. Good food and they get you out on time. I will return.

Very good food at reasonable prices. We went in March, and they had a special where you get a free meal to take home. Excellent Olive Garden atmosphere.

Their buy one take one Shrimp Parmesan is a fabulous deal. It was delicious! From the moment the hostess/manager seated us at our table, we felt like we were royalty. That's how good the service was. I truly felt like they appreciated our business. Our server was very friendly and made us feel welcome. Another server (Lindsay)was in our section... More

Went here for an evening meal whilst on business in the area. The menu is large with a good range of choices. Prices are reasonable given the standard of food. Not a Michelin starred restaurant, but good food with plentiful portions. I had a steak that was well cooked a very tender. The garlic bread served with the soup was... More

After a long day of shopping we stopped in for dinner. Seated right away on a Saturday night. Olive garden is always great for basic American Italian cuisine. Food was excellent. Fresh. Delicious. Complimentary wine tasting was a nice touch. Service was also excellent. Would come back if I was in town.

Went a little before noon on a Wednesday. Service was slow but our server was very nice. Plenty of refills, always asked if we wanted grated cheese, kept coming back to check on us. Do not go if you are in a hurry at lunchtime. You will be frustrated and not enjoy the awesome food they serve.

Always great food, Italian restaurant atmosphere, without having to spend a fortune. My favorite is the Minestrone soup, salad, bread sticks and lasagna.

We entered the restaurant thirty minutes before closing on a week night, all seven of us. The service was a tad slow, but the few wait staff were quite busy. Food arrived hot from the kitchens, tasting just as good as it does early in the day. We got great seating, attentive waitress, and were totally satisfied.
