I was got what I expected which was good food, good service, for a fair price. I have been to quite a few Olive Gardens and this one was a good choice.

Enjoyable food and service, reasonable prices, can get very busy ! this is good as it means they are doing something right, but annoying if you arrive without booking

We love Italian and especially go for the salad & breadsticks with out meal. Love the pumpkin cheesecake at the holidays too. It's beyond delicious! ! This is our favorite stand-by restaurant because there's always something we love on the menu. Especially love the never ending pasta meals in the fall. We try things we haven't tried all year.

Quick and easy, across from hotel so we just walked over and picked it up. Ate in our room and watched TV. Nice way to relax after a long drive. Food was hot and tasty.

Food was well cooked and portions were plenty. Staff was knowledgeable of menu items and very courteous. Exemplary of the entire chain of OG Restaurants.

we always have a nice dinner here when staying in Florence S.C., staff is very nice and food is always great!! We also like that we can walk over from our hotel. We don't usually eat at chain restaurants but are very happy always to eat at this one.

Excellent service, food was wonderful, everyone was friendly. Like the lighter menu options, and updated dessert menu. Our waiter was Brendan K. And his suggestions of what to order were spot on. We had our 2 kids with us (ages 6 & 8) and they loved it as well.

We visit Olive Garden often for the Soup & Salad special. With 4 Soup offerings and the capability to have a bowl of each, is a bargain in itself. But HOT tender garlicky Bread Sticks to enjoy with an endless SALAD makes for a delightful repast.

Disgusted employees in the front door being loud. Just wanted to get away from the unhappy group, and the Hostee seats me in the bar next to the action. Have enjoyed eating at the Olive Garden at other locations. Corperate has over looked the Florence, SC Olive Garden, and let the uncivilized locals run the show.
