The restaurant only had 4 servers for a lunch they had people waiting with very few people seated. When we were seated we waited over 15 min for someone to ask what we wanted to drink. The pasta fugoul soup was great as was the bread sticks and salad. The chicken parm was ok and the chicken ruzzi was disappointing.... More

Have been to this Olive Garden many times over the last few years. While some would say that their food is not "real Italian", and I would agree, the food is none the less tasty and plentiful. Service here is usually excellent. Soup, salad, and breadsticks are freely refilled. Typical Italian dishes are good, and the other entrees are tasty... More

Overall, the meal was very underwhelming. The seasoning and taste of the food was off-kilter. The only enjoyment was the salad. I thought the stuffed mushrooms and the eggplant parmigiana were "safe" bets, but was terribly mistaken.

Went for the unlimited pasta special. All restaurant owners' that pasta is the cheapest food they can serve with a high make up. Went for the curiosity only. The fettuccini sauce was water at best. Place is best for frugal family dinners only. Not a place to take some one special.

My friend and I and our children, six people in total, came here a couple of weeks ago for lunch. We were seated right away at a nice, large, round table. Our waitress took our drink order fairly quickly but then took about fifteen minutes to come back with water and a couple of sodas. Once we ordered we inquired... More

We haven't been here in a few years. My memories are of a place with long waits, noisy children and amateurish service. Our visit Wednesday evening was better. Seated immediately, we were placed at a small table within arms length of a large and noisy family table. We asked to be relocated and were placed at a booth a little... More

Plenty of delicious food with a great big salad and wonderful bread sticks. Wine is also good and the service is great.

This Olive Garden did have long lines, but of course it was Friday night. I didn't feel like waiting since line was out the door. i did come back on Monday night, and it was fairly crowded with families, but there was no line. We were seated right away, and our waitress was most attentive. The service was great, and... More

We had tried to eat here on two other occaisions (both on weekends) and saw there were long waiting times. I refuse to wait for chain restaurants. This time we tried it on a Monday night and were seated immediately. Service is fairly slow and inattentive. It took about 15 minutes to bring the soup. Waitress rarely stopped by to... More
