We enjoy Olive Garden for a family meal out for Italian food at a reasonable price, and Olive Garden usually fits the bill. At our last visit, we enjoyed a few fresh new menu options, plus old standbys such as eggplant parmesan and kids' chicken fingers, and appreciated some new decor and friendly service. The free wine tastings are a... More

Had about 20 people in our group. Orders took awhile in a not busy restaurant. Service was friendly enough but a bit pushy. Meals were hot and flavorful. Kitchen staff let the restaurant down as they miscounted and forgot an order so ended up eating after everyone else had finished. One steak was overlooked and had to be replaced. Total... More

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
