We stopped for lunch after a trying time at the Museum of Play. Our waitress was excellent. She was very understanding of our "sensitive" toddler at the time. We asked if we could place our daughters meal order when we order our drinks and she said no problem. Her meal was out in a heart beat. We both decided to... More

Went here last night for dinner and was very disapointed. The waitress was in a huge hurry to get us fed and out of there. We took one bite of our salad and she brought our dinner. She asked if we wanted cheese on our food, she put the cheese on it while it was on the tray. Usually they... More

The food here is good, salad is always fresh and the wait staff is good. Our dinners were very good and hot when it was served. The 2 for 25 is a pretty good deal and we left very full.

Good Service. Take home an extra entree was a fairly good value. Still kind of pricey (for this type of place) when you add a drink and dessert. We'd likely go back, but look for coupons

Ordered quite a bit of takeout. They gave my order to someone else, took them a long time to figure it out. Then a long wait to get my ordered food. Then as if to insult me more, they said we know you did not want a salad with one of your meals, so we are throwing one in free.

We ordered our meal to go because we had an elderly parent who wanted to stay at our motel rather than deal with a restaurant. We were travelling and it was a stressful trip. We were told our food would be ready in 30 min. When my husband went to pick it up, they said they had given it to... More

Although this is a chain restaurant, it is run very well and the food is consistently very good. If you get the all-you-can-eat salad, the dressing is wonderful and the salad is fresh. The bread sticks are so delicious my wife has to tell me to stop eating so many of them. The staff is friendly and helpful. The management... More

I can always count on Olive Garden to have the best soup and salad. Also the breadsticks are delicious.

My family always gives me grief about how much I like Olive Garden. That's ok - 'cause they gobble up the breadsticks and salad every time they accompany me! I choose carefully from the menu, and I am not usually disappointed. The food is generally fresh, with consistent quality, whether here or in Florida. Service quality varies - but our... More

The good news: 1) The salad and bread sticks were plentiful 2) The dessert was delicious Now of the not so good news... 1) Service was slow, and not just at our table 2) Both of our orders were just...
