Better than previous experiences

This restaurant has actually gotten better since they broke off with Red Lobster. The service was faster, the wait staff was friendlier and the food was as good as always. We went for a lunch business function.

This was our 2nd time to come here and it was OK. The first time we ordered calamari and we filled up on it and salad and bread sticks. The calamari was a bit greasy and about half an hour of eating it we both had stomach aches, other then that the rest of the food and service was good.... More

This location is close to our home and offers the full menu of Olive Garden favorites. The difference for me is that on a recent visit when they were obviously struggling in the kitchen and some of the food don't come out right the waitress and the manager did all they could to ensure that our dining experience was memorable....

I came in for the endless soup and salad for lunch. It was a Friday and there were plenty of other people there and the waitress seemed annoyed that I was doing the endless soup and salad. I ordered about 3 bowls of chicken Ginnochi and sure enough the next day I was sick the entire day. I will never... More

Ate here because of convenience to hotel and was so pleasantly surprised. By far, the prettiest Olive Garden I've ever been in and the food was of very high quality and expertly prepared. I had to shake myself to realize I was in a chain restaurant. Obviously well-managed. And a fun bar!

Hadn't eaten at Olive Garden in over a year, there's another place we like better and we go there when we want Italian. Salad and bread good as usual. What we had was good. Got fried calamari for appetizer and the white sauce that came with it was delicious. Hubby and brother had garlic chicken alfredo and both liked it.... More

I ate before the evening rush, had no trouble getting seated in a quieter area. The waiter was attentive but not invasive, and the gluten-free pasta was surprisingly good.

We got there at 6pm Saturday night, there was already lots of people waiting to be seated. We had 9 total, two families, but asked for two tables (4 & 5) to shorten our wait. Hostess was extremely friendly and helpful and gave us some breadsticks while we were waiting (kids were starving). Waited about 45 min. Our tables were... More

I have visited this restaurant off and on for several years. For the last several months if I visit the bathroom the sewage oder is unacceptable. They obviously have a serious exhaust problem. I mean really, they can't correct that? If you go here and have to visit the bathroom take something to cover you nose with! You ask why... More
