Save your money! Portions are a lot smaller and prices higher ! No more full salad bowls but they will refill it if you request . Chicken marsala entrée is much smaller and re roasted potatoes are ,well I'm not sure what they are,except they're not what they used to be , like many chain restaurants they keep cutting back...

Employees act like they're doing you a favor letting you eat there. Hostesses are lost. Had 2 waitresses working together and one was really great the other was making it so obvious she hated her job. Complete with huffs and eye rolls. Food is average chain food. I actually liked my chicken scampi but the portion has gotten a lot... More

salad is always the best with the bread sticks!! I had the whole wheat linguini and it could come with a variety of sauces. i had the meat sauce, very good.We also had the fried calamari, very good, would recommend getting the spicy sauce. Very light batter!

We enjoy going to Olive Garden on occasion. While we do not consider it real Italian food, it is good for a meal out because of the bread sticks and salad. This particular location is one that we avoid because of the lack of service we have encountered there. Servers do not seem to care, and management seems to push... More

Believe it or not, the zuppa tuscana (sausage soup) is different OG to OG and this Olive Garden makes it the best! The prices are great and I love the food at the Olive Garden - maybe the tomato sauce isn't what "you're momma used to make", but try the alfredo or something new. I just love all their dishes.

unfortunately our waitress was burnt out by the time we got there. She was friendly to our face however right next to us she laughed and poked fun at us to other waitstaff. I guess her hearing was off not thinking we could hear her. Outside of her, the food was good.

We visited this Olive Garden for lunch and although the restaurant was very busy we were immediately escorted to a table. We were immediately greeted by our server. After taking our drink order and determining if we wanted soup or salad our drinks were immediately served to us and the salad immediately followed. I ordered the citrus chicken sorrento and...

Never eaten at an Olive Garden before but we had a gift card so thought we'd give it a try. This restaurant in Toms River was really a nice surprise! Bright, cozy separate dining areas, and immaculate. At 2:00 on a Thursday afternoon it was bustling. Being bar patrons, my husband and I sat at the bar today and spent... More

I consider the meals decent for a chain restaurant. If your in the mood for Olive Garden flavor you know what to expect. The soups are my favorite part at OG!
