The restaurant was packed, but only had a 35 min wait. We waited at the bar and had great service. The wait time was correct. Our food arrived promptly after ordering. The staff did a very good job of handling the crowd and the food was delicious.

My wife, daughter and I ate at Olive Garden this weekend. Their menu has changed and it seems like they are serving less pasta meals than before. Anyway, we enjoyed the always good unlimited salad and bread sticks. The calamari was at best average. Especially when you compare it to the calamari at Carrabba's. Their dipping sauce was excellent however.... More

Lunchtime favorite: soup, salad and breadsticks. Salad is delicious, and they bring out as much as you can eat. Same with the soups: you can have as many bowls as you can eat and you can order a different kind each time. And the breadsticks just keep on coming! We were seated promptly upon arrival and our drink and food... More

Soup, salad, and bread sticks. All you can eat never goes out of style. Sit at tables closest to the bar for your best service ever in an Olive Garden. Endless tea, and great customer service

Soup, Salad, & Breadsticks are my go to meal. Even though it was May (end of). Service was very good at the table, took a little while to get the tables together for a big group even though we were early.

My wife and I eat at this Olive Garden every time we work in Wilmington area. It is one of our favorites because of the friendliness of the staff. We eat at Olive Garden locations regularly all over NC as we travel.

Tiffany was our server. She was so attentive. She was very quick to take our order and made sure we had everything we needed before we asked. The food was fantastic! My daughters had never been to Olive Garden before. We were very impressed with this location's service.

The food here is just so-so. It's a bit on the expensive side for the portion you get served. Had dinner there tonight, and we were served our appetizer, salad and dinner all within 20 minutes. We just about started eating our appetizer when the salad arrived. That was fine...but just a couple of minutes later, our dinners arrived. The... More
