We were celebrating my husbands birthday and nice dinner out before he leaves for military training. We got seated and felt rushed to order our food. Then it came out cold and when we asked for more bread it never came. My husband nicely asked another waitress for more bread and she rolled her eyes at him!!! Then we were... More

Went for dinner with friends. We all ordered from the 2 for $25 menu. All of us had a great dinner and it was a super deal. Where else can four people have a nice meal in a nice restaurant for $50? Consistent Olive Garden quality.

We decided to go here as it had been a long time since we been there. We had the $25 special for 2, the waitress was very nice and attentive, the food was great, and dessert was even better. 2 entrees all you can eat salad and bread sticks with dessert to share..what a tasty bargain!

Took my daughter here for her 20th birthday dinner. Food was awesome and fresh tasting. Salad was crunchy & bread sticks hot. Waitress was friendly.

We usually go to olive garden for soup&salad or lunch calzones. We find their menu to be mediocre Americanized Italian food (any place that serves spaghetti with meatballs is not authentic. Both are served in Italy but never together). The salads are good and this location had the best minestrone soup of any Olive Garden we have found the first... More

We took my husband's staff for lunch last week to celebrate one of their birthdays. Chirs Lenart, Manager, helped me make the arrangements and was so accommodating! Servers Aurelie and Melissa pulled out the stops to be sure we all had an excellent dining experience! I have many food allergies and issues and they made every assurance my specific needs... More

Wife and I have ate in a number of Olive Gardens over the years and have always been satisfied. Not so this time. Very mediocre food quality. We were there on a Saturday lunchtime which is quite busy. However, as a former commercial cook, I would not have served the dish I received. Pasty Alfredo sauce causing noodle to "clump".... More

A few years ago we spent about three weeks touring Italy and loved it. After we returned home we heard some people saying that the food at the Olive Garden served American styled Italian food and that if you wanted real Italian food you needed to go elsewhere. Well, I might have an uneducated palette but, having loved the food... More

We like Olive Garden restaurants. Sure, we know it's a big "chain" and is an Americanized version of "real" Italian food, but it is consistently good. This one was no exception. Although they were quite busy early on a weeknight in winter, we were seated immediately in a comfortable booth. Our young lady server "Celeste" was friendly and efficient and... More
