Great Service

We were seated promptly and our waitress came right away. We were served quickly and everything we ordered was good eats. Priced reasonable and we had enough food to take home for later. Great Sweet Tea!

This Olive Garden location is above average compared to other Olive Garden locations I have visited. Our waitress was extremely attentive, patient and helpful. She recommended several specials to us and also offered to bag up extra breadsticks for us to take home. If you are planning on having dinner at this location on a Friday or Saturday night, I...

Catching most restaurants at shift change between lunch and dinner can be less than pleasant but today was nothing like that at the Hickory olive garden.

We had our dinner with pasta, Solomon and chicken . The food was excellent. We liked Minestrone soup and it was unlimited when you a order a meal. The ambience was excellent . They also encourage you to download their mobile app and give you gift coupons.

The chicken parm was average until I began on the second piece. I couldn't cut into it. It was full of grizzle. The side spaghetti was... More
