This place is always busy

we've eaten here on quite a few occasions and honestly have never had a bad experience. Specials are good, service is fast. Even when it's busy we don't wait long. Nice place.

This restaurant seems always very busy in spite of mediocre food. I can only attribute it to the unlimited soup and salad and large portions. Many patrons were leaving with multiple containers of leftovers. Very ordinary fare.

Just left very frustrated. It all started when our waitress became annoyed when one of us changed from meatballs to shrimp (upsell, be happy). Had to ask multiple times for things. Took our silverware and side plates when we were not finished. She was clearly not happy and made us feel extremely uncomfortable. She disappeared countless times and we were... More

While we were there table after table of... More

Bad quality Darden food. Rubber chicken, my dad had a piece of lasagna that was tiny. And I'm just not a fan of overly friendly wait staff that try to make up for bad service by trying to be cool like we've been buds for year. Please just back off and get the service done right. No thanks.

Everyone was pleased with their meal. The desserts were incredible. Our server was very chipper, though a little slow on refills and wrapping up the meal. This is definitely a better than average Olive Garden.

A bunch of us visited the Clay Olive Garden between work meetings on Wednesday afternoon. This restaurant is representative of most of the stores in this chain; solid Italian food served at a reasonable price. Yesterday, I had the Pappardelle Pescatora, which is shrimp, scallops and clams (with some nice asparagus) served over a bed of thick pasta (pappardelle). Everything... More

We had a light lunch soup and salad. They brought both out at the same time. I would have preferred to have my salad then have the soup come later. The bread had a crunch to it, like it was day old bread reheated. The salad was ok but the dressing tasted watered down. Like they put water into it... More
