Good for young children

This is one of your go-to restaurants when the grandchildren, ages 7 and 3 1/2, are dining out with us. The activity page keeps them busy while waiting for the food. Pizza is their favorite. The food is tasty for adults also! I especially like the never-ending salad and soup. The restaurant... read more

Olive Garden is long the brunt joke of "Stouffer's frozen food style and not at all worthy of Italian cuisine. In the last few years, at least this location has gotten MUCH better. There are several dishes (Fettucine Alfredo, Rosemary Garlic Chicken) that are to die for and my super Italian friends enjoy the meals there now.

I had heard that the breadsticks were amazing, but I must say that I thought they were just ok, nothing to really write home about. The salad was very good. I had the lasagna frittas as an appetizer and they were delicious, I... More

We like to go to Olive Garden when we want to eat a good pasta dish. It is always so tasty and the price is not so bad.

Have eaten at this Olive Garden on many occasions and the food is well prepared and the service is great. They are especially nice to my grand daughter and make her feel special. New menu is quite good.
