Hadn't dined at this particular Olive Garden for some time but the decor has been updated since our last visit. Very nice and modern looking. Olive Garden is my husband's favorite. He loves the soup and salad combo so that's where we went for his birthday. The food was great. Salad was very fresh. Soups and bread sticks were nice... More

We had a great light post- Christmas lunch at Olive Garden while shopping. We both had the soup and salad and it was delicious. Jestine was our server and was super.

We arranged for an order to go dinner. The food was average for a chain. We ordered 2 soups as part of the dinner and instead of having/using soup container, the restaurant used the same type container that the spaghetti came in. On the was home, the soup leaked out and all over the back seat!! Not smart Olive Garden.... More

When we arrived, we were told that there would be a 15 minute wait for a table. That seemed odd since there seemed to be several empty, set up tables! Maybe it was a shift change! Anyhow, we opted to eat in the bar where there was no wait. Our server was one of the bartenders. Name, Johnny M.. A... More

We go here for Birthdays and special occasions and we have never been disappointed. Their potato soup is best part of the meal and their grilled Italian sausage is perfect.
