Our twelve teen aged boys, given the choice, chose Olive Garden for dinner en route to our summer mission project, and our whole group with chaperones were quickly accommodated with our own space at this very friendly restaurant. The food was excellent and the menu choices great.

This is NOT Italian food. It is a place where a recipe for a dish is to find out how many cheeses you can melt in it.

Our lunch was hot, good, and serviced quickly. The servers are friendly and efficient. We live in the area and dine here often. We always leave full and satisfied.

No surprises same as all the other olive gardens. Nothing special. The place is usually very crowded as there are not many excellent restaurants in Zanesville. Food is constant however, not bad.

We usually avoid chains and family restaurants but the Olive Garden in Zanesville was very close to the hotel, so we decided to give it a try. I had soup and salad; soup was hot and tasty. Salad was fresh and crisp. The service was friendly but professional.

I dislike restaurants where they act like they are doing you a favor by letting you have some of their food. This was a chain restaurant with chain food but pretentious prices and wait staff that was as uninspired as the food. I wouldn't break my neck going back to this place.

We were seated quickly. The server was very nice and checked on us many times during the meal. The manager also checked on us twice and brought around coupons for a lunch deal. Very nice restaurant, much better than the one where we live.

We love Olive Garden. Have been to many in different cities. This one was reliable as usual. Our server John was super. I has asiago Alfredo with penne pasta and my husband had his usual spaghetti and meatballs.

Were in town for 1 night, was a toss between here & the Cracker Barrel. This place won the toss. It was your average Olive Garden fare, the hostess and our waiter were very friendly. The entire staff were very outgoing and accommodating.
