Typical Olive Garden

We needed a place for us to eat with the kids and grandkids and thought we would try the OG. It has gotten some bad press recently. I can say that the food was OK and maybe a little better than just OK. Kidlets enjoyed their meals and the adults were busy trying all the 25 cent wine tastings... read more

Came here for dinner with family a few weeks ago and the service was excellent. We were seated right away and got our food very quickly. The service and the food were much better than the rest of the chain and this place was also much cleaner than the rest of the chain.

The staff is kind and courteous, prompt in serving, a manager comes over to ask how is everything, the food is always good and rich. I love it there, price is right too :-)

I think Olive Garden is great value with the kids. Food is consistently good. I like their new build your own pasta meals. Service was a little slow. We were in a booth that was out of line of sight and they forgot about us

Went there and even called ahead. Had to wait to get seated. Server was very nice and professional. Waited over 2 hours for the food and it was over cooked. Not a good experience. Several tables around us came in after we did, got their food, ate and left before we even got ours. Yes, it was 12 at our... More

This place is always busy. Sometimes the staff goes overboard with the friendly part. I am not there to be chummy, I am there for a meal. The best part of the food is the salad. This is a chain and is very predictable. I myself go because friends enjoy it. I can take it or leave it. Oh well,... More

I cant tell how i felt but there is something missing in the link between service, place and food. there is some kind of... More

Ordered a meal to go and was told it would be ready in 20 minutes. When I arrived, 15 minutes later, I had to wait an additional 15 minutes. While waiting, a couple came up asking for a gift card. When my food came out, the girl waited on the couple for the gift card instead of offering my food... More
