Chain restaurants do a decent job of keeping their product and look consistent and this Olive Garden probably meets the chains expectations. That doesn't mean it's going to earn 5 stars from me.

Stopped in on a Saturday evening after a football game. I was concerned we would have to wait, but there was no wait at all. Meal was fabulous and our waiter was even better!

One word is great food.....I love pasta, of any kind and if you do, don't hesitate to go to Olive Garden. Love the romanced atmosphere also, alittle pricey but worth the money.

visited the Olive Garden in Cookeville, TN on a recent Business Trip and my family came up to visit. We loved the new building and the services was great! Landon took great care of us while we were there. I will recommend this location to anyone in the area!

The service was excellent, as was the food! I never had to ask for tea refills, or anything else. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the Cookeville area.
