The regular chain restaurant rules and disappointments that we always endure. You have to wait in line...no reservations. The food is mostly frozen not much fresh. We ordered an appetizer and 2 minutes after it got to the table our entrees arrived. Very frustrating.

Olive Garden's soup and salad is a good value for the money. You can have all the salad you want and even different kinds of soup for follow up. I like their gnocchi soup.

The Chicken and Gnocchi soup is a guest favorite! We are constantly evolving our menu to provide a wide variety of items that deliver exceptional value. The endless soup, salad, and breadsticks certainly gives you the opportunity to try all 4 of our soups for a great price! We hope to see you again soon. More

Love the salad. Good service and usual food. at an Olive Garden. The only problem with this restaurant is the parking. You cannot park anywhere else but there lot behind the restaurant and since the employees have to park there as well, it can fill up in a hurry.

I've been to this particular Olive Garden 5 or 6 times and every time I have not been let down. The service has been nothing short of amazing! Two servers that stand out the most to me are Brittany and Tyler. They are two very genuine, very friendly, very warm individuals and their service was prompt. The food as well... More

Didn't have to wait long, we had 2 kids with us and we all were treated great. Food was terrific - wine available if you wanted it. We all had something different and it was all very good.

As a brand, Olive Garden has a place in Italian themed dining. However, this location is showing wear & tear on the bulding and a staff that needs a morale boost.. The staff is usually professional and helpful. From time to time, however, we get a server who forgets that without customers they don't have a job. Hopefully management has... More

Great service and food. Daughter has special diet needs and they brought out their gluten free menu and then let us keep it. The place is busy, but there is a good reason for that. A place I really like to go :)
