Everyone wanted something a bit different, and this did the trick. If the mother-in-law is happy, we are all happy. :)

We enjoy Olive Garden for the decent Italian food, the great breadsticks, and the friendly service. It was our son's birthday, so the added bonus of a free mini dessert was a nice touch (no singing, though). They have added some nice dishes to the menu, including some small plates and appetizers.

Haven't been to the Olive Garden since my kids were younger, maybe 5 years. Always loved the nicely decorated and comfortable seating. That has not changed but I was unhappy with our recent visit. And as you can see from my other reviews I really do hate to give bad reviews. All you see on tv is the ads for... More

I love Italian food, and usually will go to a mom and pop restaurant for the experience. However, I was invited to the Olive Garden and was pleasantly surprised at the respectable taste. There has been a change and I like it! The appetizers, the soups selections, the main course meals, the drinks, and the desserts are what I like... More

We go to our neighborhood Olive Garden at least once a month because the food is usually good, the service is friendly, and the prices are reasonable for Italian food. There is always something for everyone, even my super-picky 8-year old. While it's certainly not the finest Italian around, it's a good family night out.

Staff always pleasant. All entree's served with unlimited "salad bowl". Salad always fresh tasting. Food typical for chain type restaurant.

We ate here on a quiet Tuesday night before attending a play for the evening. We have been to this restaurant many times, and have always had to wait to be seated because it is a very popular dining establishment. On this particular night, we were seated immediately. Becky was our waitress, and she was very knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient.... More

Our server was great. We really appreciate the lighter fare options and I found a new one tonight. The vegetable lasagne with chicken tastes decadent without the guilt. I did find that this is the most blandly decorated Olive Garden that I've ever seen. Thankfully, it doesn't affect the food.
