BUSY!!! Friendly staff......

It was a Saturday night in a college town. We knew no matter where we went, it was going to be busy. We stood at the bar for 15-20 minutes with bartenders working right there and never once asked if we wanted to order. I had to wave my hand and yell out, "Where do we go to order a... read more

Stopped here after an Aggie basketball game. Sat in the Bar so we could watch some football playoff action. Robert, the bartender, was awesome! Knew the menu to a T. Great food, fast refills, friendly service. Salad, waters, and breadsticks kept coming. We left generous tips. Will return. Bar was not noisy, easy to talk to others.

Celebrating my birthday and we wanted to have a fun time, yet the service was bad: we were sat at a dirty table, we had to ask the hostess to get it cleaned. We should have left right off, this already was pointing to poor service. We were not given any silverware or napkins until we asked and our food... More

We were lucky enough to get one of the never ending pasta passes, that was a great deal in itself but anyone not lucky enough to get the pass could still scoff all the pasta, salad and breadsticks they want all for under $10 bucks, the price is hard to beat and while I am not a pasta fan the...

I had driven 7 hours and was very hungry. They were still open at 9:30 pm and gave me a booth even though I was alone. Good food, service, and speed.

The food is excellent, the salads are particularly tasty, lovely bread sticks. Better Italian food than many places in Italy.

The food is average, the service is alittle slow and the booths need a good cleaning. I still love there salad and bread sticks.The bartender service is the worst. Once I order a drink especially a frozen one its half melted by the time its served.

The wife and I split their egg plant dish which was enough for two and very tasty. The service was also very good!

The place has a lot of dust especially on the lamps on the top of the tables we dine in, cockroaches were on the walls, I hope people do better than that for your business.

You know the chain. But unlike some national chains, Olive garden STILL delivers great food, in a fair amount of time, at a fair price. I go for the salad but the entree to follow is always perfect.
