However I must say that the service I received at this Oliver Garden was particularly bad at best and insulting at worst. At one point we started to suspect whether the server did not want... More

Business friends eating out during week need separate tabs. I have been there 3 times recently and every time I get the tab back with my card charges on the other guests card.

Good service. Shawn has story after story. He recited two original poems. I think he has a lot more inside him. Unforgettable.

We have eaten at many different Olive Gardens over the years and around the country, including many times at this one in Pineville. The experience is generally pretty consistent with reliable food and service that is usually good to very good.

Let's face it, anyone that has eaten at Olive Garden knows it's not real Italian food, that being said I liked the buy one take one home smoked mozzarella chicken for $12.99 and I thought our waiter was excellent.

Excellent food, great service, we always go to Olive Garden. The atmosphere is pleasant and staff is friendly. Sometimes need to wait for your turn on Friday or Sat , but not too long. My kids love never ending pasta , salad and soup !

Second time here, normal Olive Garden Fare. First bowl of gnocchi soup had 1 whole gnocchi in it. The water apologized and gave us a fresh bowl as soon as it was ready. All in all a great place to chow down and get some Americanized Italian food. Fast service and friendly staff, this place is always busy so they... More

Just a regular Olive Garden. Nothing special. But the food was Olive Garden standards with great service.
