"Pleasantly Surprised"

I am not a fan of chain restaurants, but this night I decided to try the Olive Garden. I had "The Tour of Italy", a plate with 3 different Italian dishes, generous portions of: "Chicken Parmigiana", "Lasagna Classico" and "Fettuccine Alfredo", I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised, it was... read more

We ordered an appetizer.."Create a Sampler Italiano" the stuff mushrooms were good. We also ordered Strawberry Passion Limonatas and they were great also....my only complaint is the small portions that... More

Greeted politely and immediately taken to a nice booth with the BEST waiter, Martin. He was like the cherry on a sundae. When asked a question about a dish, his description made you want to give it a try. The service we received from Martin was fantastic. You never were in want of anything. Salad, meal, dessert, all were great.... More

We ate there twice because my husband loved their steaks. Very comfortable and great staff. Their stuffed mushrooms were my favorite. There was nothing we disliked about this restaurant.

We were very impressed with the staff and service at this restaurant. We went in and one of our parties, sugar had dropped so they got us to a table quickly and brought a sweet tea and bread sticks to help. Elvis our server was very knowledgeable and kept coming to check on us. I don't remember the two girls... More

We are from NY and really appreciate "authentic" Italian food. OGIR is the only place where I can get excellent minestrone soup, great tasting salad with freshly grated cheese, super house red wine that is reasonably priced, delicious portabella mushroom ravioli, meatball hero sandwiches and so much more. Ask for the luncheon size and you get just the right portion... More

This Olive Garden is one of the best in the chain I have visited. It is specious, attractive, and has excellent service. The endless soup, salad, and breadstick special makes this a nice option for the budget and health conscious customer.

My Wife had the Tour of Italy and she demolished it with gusto, the salad was plentiful and delicious, our friend had the Fettucine with chicken. It was a really great lunch and there was a... More

This Olive Garden is pretty decent. It has excellent management. The food is average. It's not bad, but it's not the best. Depending on your server, you can get very good service here.
