3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2015 NEW

The Bartenders/To Go staff was more interested in talking to each other than waiting on To Go customers. They seemed almost annoyed because they had to take mine and another customer's to go order. Late Friday night with most of the restaurant empty, still took 25+ mins to get a To-Go order (just one pasta entree).

We sat in the bar and enjoyed people watching. Food was spectacular, as always, at Olive Garden. Bartender was our server and she got a little behind when she got a lot of drink orders, but we weren't in a hurry and had an enjoyable chat with the couple at the next table over. Overall, a nice meal.

My wife and I had not been to Olive Garden in quite a while. I knew that the company ownership, Darden Restaurants, had sold their Red Lobster chain and are focusing on improving Olive Garden. The improvements show up on the menu. Some of the newer items are very good. I tried the Lasagna Primavera with chicken and it was... More

This is the second time here and it is the second time I feel like they are trying to rush me out the door and they was not busy. The food not worth the price.

I really don't need to say much more than the title. Olive Garden is consistent, and this location is no different. Apart from a soup mixup, the service was what I expect, and the atmosphere is perfect for lunch. The Andes mints are always a nice touch, no matter what you order. The Toscana soup is a favorite, and the... More

Our daughter chose OG on a Sunday after church to celebrate her birthday. The restaurant was busy yet not wait listed. Server was super professional but stretched too thin. Appetizer arrived promptly & hot but entrees were slow and semi-warm. Server tried too late to help but effort was made at least. They forgot to bring our daughters birthday dessert... More

Yeah, I know it's the Olive Garden and it's a chain. However............ There is a reason there is a line at the door almost every night. This afternoon we decided to go get an early dinner (4:30) at Carrabas, about 2 miles away from the Olive Garden. They had a 15 minute wait for an empty restaurant. So, we decided... More

Of all of the Olive Gardens we have eaten at this by far was the best! Casey (I hope to have spelled her name correctly) was an absolute blast to have as our server. Casey knew the menu, made some great suggestions and was upbeat and friendly. The appetizers were out of this world, excellent calamari and chicken tenders. Our... More

Always enjoy coming to this Olive Garden. Food is always consistent, but lost one star for service. I always feel rushed when I come here for lunch or dinner.

It's hard to write about Olive Garden having any kind of real ambiance. It's a pro forma experience most of the time; and the only real differentiators are a little extra effort from the servers; and meals that arrive exactly as requested. We had both of these on a recent visit; great service from a friendly server, well prepared if... More
