Olive Garden is great for the Soup and salad lunch or dinner

Hard to beat Olive Garden for their speed in delivering the soup and salad for what, $8.95 or something like that? Service is quick, if the place is full you can seat yourself at the bar and still order your food There may be fancier Italian restaurants in the world but we go to Olive Garden... read more

Was perhaps the worst meal I have had in a long while. I was compelled to return the meal as inedible after the first bite. And the meal was a steak... who would expect to get a bad steak in Nebraska? I was very disappointed.

we had to wait quite a while for our table but people did not want to hurry that were sitting where we would set. The food was great and service was very good after being seated.

My boyfriend and I ate at Olive Garden on July 19th around 7:30 pm. We were seated in the back corner by a large group who wasn't there much longer after we left, as well as two couples with their children. Our waiter (he had black hair & an ear piercing) did a great job.. He was very apologetic about... More

Arrived shortly after 11 am and had a short wait of about 8 minutes or so. The salad and bread sticks were yummy as always! The fettuccine Alfred was delicious and my husbands tour of Italy looked yummy. Our waitresses was very friendly and made sure we had refills of drinks and bread sticks. At the end of our meal...

I went at 5:30 hoping it wasn't to busy yet, but I was wrong. There was a wait to be seated, and I was alone so I just sat at the bar. It was a really good choice because the bartender that served me was very attentive. It was better than having a waiter or waitress make rounds to your... More

All were very good but these are very small portions of each and really not worth the $16.95 I paid for mine. Companions had a... More
