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 had been on the road almost all day and were looking for a tasty place to get a nice meal. Decided on Olive Garden from a TV ad, and were not disappointed. 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

I visit this restaurant periodically with my parents, who love Olive Garden's soup and salad combo. My trip there yesterday opened my eyes to why they enjoy the place so much. Much of the effect was from great service. Kiefer was our waiter. He patiently answered questions, each time as though he had nothing else in the world to do... More
