I've been to this Olive Garden several times now. No major complaints. The waitresses and waiters are awesome! Staff really makes a difference in this chain. They've been great here. The food is usually great. The reason I give 4 stars and not 5 is because sometimes the soup is soggy and sometimes the sides are not hot or the... More

Ate here once on our trip. This was not one of our better OG experiences. Service was not great. My wife's drink was prepared differently from what she ordered. Soup was brought out at the same time as the appetizers and the waiter did not bring a requested water refill until we had asked twice. Food was not great either.... More

Most wait staff is very attentive. Wait is normally short. Condiments in salad are limited and when you request more olives or tomatoes etc it seems to be a big deal. (We head the staff has to actually report how many they give to each table). The rolls use to be wonderful but they are actually a little off the... More

The management and servers were very polite and came by often. Were very eager to please and with all those great smells and dishes, it's hard to pick one!

This Olive Garden has a great kitchen and makes the best variety of Italian dishes I have seen in the chain. A bit pricey but worth it if you like this type of fare.

The Olive Garden in Hanover is fairly new. It is clean, nice, comfortable, and the staff is very friendly. While the menu is standard Olive Garden fare, the food fresh, tasty, and well prepared. I enjoyed my favorite Olive Garden meal - Ravioli di Porta Bello! Excellent!

My husband and I decided we wanted to have a quiet, romantic dining experience. We didn't want all the noise you get in a sports bar restaurant. (Hanover seems to have an abundance of these noisy restaurants.) We found our refuse at The Olive Garden! The fireplace was actually "on", as it was a rainy, damp and cool evening and... More

The chicken scampi lacked flavor. The server took over 15 minutes to give us our bill. No drink refills during the meal---our server was MIA during the meal
