Plenty of empty tables, but Olive Garden made us wait a few minutes for one, I think it is their standard operating procedure. Aged in-laws like this Olive Garden and we were pleased with our meals and service. My salmon was good, a fellow diner was pleased with the trout that was new to the menu. Garlic breadsticks must come... More

My family and I went here for our weekend cheat meal. The meal satisfied our taste buds and belly! After eating salad, bread sticks and our main course we indulged in dessert. Kate our waitresses made the entire dining experience wonderful. She had the best attitude. We will be returning here, hopefully Kate will be working.

We decided on Italian food as we were visiting Lincoln. We had not been to an Olive Garden in a while and gave it a try. Service was excellent and the food tasty. We tried some of the $10 specials and were not disappointed. Endless salad and great bread. took enough home for the next day.

The food and service is great, unfortunately everything is so high in sodium. I ate one of the chicken specials, but was up 3 lbs the next morning.

This is one of my best friend's and mine "favorite" places for lunch. The food is delicious and they don't rush you away. They also have gluten free pasta, which is important to me due to allergies. Love Olive Garden!

We did arrive early, about 4:30 PM and so the place wasn't crowded. Our waitress was exceptional, helpful and knowledgeable. The food was tasty, properly prepared, fresh... More

The breadsticks here are always a favorite, but everything else I have has is also a treat. The salad is great - though the dressing is a bit on the salty side. I had a wonderful minestone soup that was hot and perfectly seasoned. The pasta dishes also looked wonderful. For the calorie counters in our group, there is a... More
