This is my favorite restaurant. Its always inviting staff is amazing and the food is beyond excellent although I only get the parmesan chicken or Alfredo chicken. . But I have tried bites from other dishes so all in all this is a great place to have dinner. . .

Chose Olive Garden for lunch with my visiting sis today (is one of our old favorites). We were not disappointed. We were trying to think of a place with a friendly, comfy ambience - and good food, of course. Hard to beat the Olive Garden. And then we lucked out and were given Teresa G as our waitress - or...

I love Olive Garden but not so much impressed with this location. Service slow, food average. Maybe they were just off today we all have them but not so certain I will go back I will just go to the one nearest me.

The Olive Garden gives you several great Italian dishes with an endless salad bowl. Good food at good prices and good service. Go and enjoy.

Probably one of the best Olive Gardens when it comes to personalized service. The food was typical excellent taste and value, but our server really made the visit worth while. I had the beef medallions and they were tender enough to cut with a fork. Lots of food and a great price.

I am genuinely glad for the successful encounters so many have had with this restaurant. The atmosphere was typical for an Olive Garden. Our waitress was kind, but apparently required to serve too many tables. She did not ask us if our food was good. The salad was a small amount, though two of the three at our table, were... More

We try to visit Olive Garden as much as we can. The soup and salad has never disappointed us. It's great along with a great atmosphere to relax. The service is great.

The food was hot and really good. The bread sticks were very fresh and hot. Our server was good at keeping our drinks filled.

We held a rehearsal dinner for a group of 25 here. The manager and wait staff went above and beyond to make the evening special. Delicious food, professional but friendly staff, immaculate and warm restaurant....we felt like we were in someone's home! Could not have asked for a better experience!
