We had some family in from out-of state and we were going shopping @ the Ocean County mall so we stopped for dinner. On a Saturday evening, at dinner time in most places, you'd expect a wait time to be seated, not here. Even though the parking lot was crowded, we were seated immediately. The waitress gave us ample time... More

We stopped here for dinner after receiving a coupon in the mail. Having not visited this restaurant for quite a while, we decided to give it another try. We were delighted that at 5pm we were seated immediately. The special was a mixture of clams and shrimp over large noodles. When the entree was served, two of my clams and... More

Never liked Olive garden, only reason we went was for the coupon and figured we would see if any thing changed, but no nothing changed, the reasturant is always packed with families and seniors. The reasturant has a crowded feeling and is loud, the floors are always dirty. The service was awful. Our waitress made it obvious she hated her... More

We eat here 1-2 times a month. Food is good for price and service has always been great. We ask for Val as she is always pleasant and eager to make sure visit is good.

Soup and salad were good. Enjoyed the stuffed chicken marsala. My children liked the chicken and fettucini Alfredo. My husband always loves their tiramisu.@

Good food and reasonably priced. Dining room crowded but service was excellent. Best to arrive between 4 & 5pm to ensure a no wait situation

You always get what you expect. Pasta always good, hot, and tasty. Waitstaff is very nice, and it is affordable.

We go there quite often and have never been disappointed. Whatever we order comes out just the way we asked for it. The service is very good and the drinks are outstanding

Service was okay. Establishment looked run down and smelled. Needs to be redone. Old concept not working.

OK. I admit it. I have not been to an Olive Garden in years. I simply never liked them feeling they couldn't come near any authentic Italian restaurant. That is, until now! while visiting family in Toms River, they took my sister and I to this restaurant. I was blown away! The food, service and pricing were excellent. They brought... More
