The Olive Garden serves pretty watered down, bland Italian. If anything, I found the food here to be even less interesting. Salad was drenched in dressing and breadsticks were pretty flavorless. To be fair, the service was good and the prices are reasonable, but with so many outstanding authentic Italian places in Jersey, why would you go here?

Wait Time and price is decent. Big enough to hold many people .More varieties.They get you the items whatever best possible as per customer''s need..You can order dishes customized way anyway....Combination suggestions in Veg/Non-Veg are worthy.

Very disappointed in this reastaurant. The waiter although friendly, tried to rush us with our meals. It seemed he wanted to take the complete order before we finished our cocktails, as to get more customers .Drinks were weak, entree were fast food at best. Will not go back!

Talk about variety, this restaurant has it. Seafood to meat dishes, they seem to cover the bases. Had a shrimp-pasta dish that was outta sight. Don't remember what the other three had but from the looks of the clean empty dishes and their comments, theirs were equally delicious. The prices were very reasonable and I can't believe anyone leaves there... More

walking distance from hotel, olive garden food, but was clean and good. You just walk across the hotel lot and you are there. If you want a good salad they have the best

Went to this Olive Garden on a Tuesday night. It is amazing to see the place with empty tables and peoples waiting to be seated. I don't get it. The service was kind of slow, but ok. It took a while to the food come. Food is always the same. No big surprise here.

After writing my review for the Olive Garden, near Atlantic City in Mays Landing, N.J., I thought I might try another Olive Garden to compare and see if the Salad was the same and just as good! This experience was identical to the other one. Outstanding All-u-Can eat Salad, with O.K. main courses and great desserts. Once again, the highlight... More

Ate there with a friend last night. Love the new $12.95 deal. So much food. And then we got to take home not only our leftovers, but second entrees for today's lunch or dinner. Great value. We were so stuffed & the food was delicious. Can't beat this price.

Good food, good service, the wine was great. Location on Route 17N makes it easily accessible from that side of the road, but a bit difficult if you are traveling southbound.

Four excellent kinds of soup to choose from, this lunch cannot be beat. Soup, salad and breadsticks lunch for under $10 with taxes and tip. Unheard of. I am fixated on the Minestrone and can't get enough of it. Full menu of other things but I keep going back for this. Very pleasant environment and happy wait staff to give... More
