On a recent business trip, we stopped by Olive Garden for dinner. I ordered Ravioli di Portobello. Delicious sauce, great tasting soup, and good salad. Overall a good filling dinner.

I'm going to make this as short as I can so ya'll don't lose attention to what's important here. Our server was for sure rushed at his table section this evening around dinner time. Food was cold as I expected from my last visit at Olive Garden. I had to wait for another plate to come out so I could... More

I came for the soup and salad but decided on the chicken marsala , which was not bad my wife tried the chicken scampi , but was not satisfied, she prefers my cooking when it comes to Italian food, but what caught my attention was Michelle the server. And how well she knew her wines, she did an excellent job.... More

I love Logans. My wife and I stumbled into one in Topeka, Kansas, a few years ago. We just wanted a light supper. The first thing we were offered were some WONDERFUL fresh out of the oven yeast rolls. They are fabulous and come no matter what you order. They have great peanuts too that you can shell and use...

Stopped in for late lunch/early dinner, and found the food to be very good, in keeping with other Olive Garden restaurants. The décor was lacking that fresh feel, and on the day we visited, they were out of 2 draft beers on tap, out of three. Service was less than expected from this chain. Numerous mistakes by our server, made... More

I am originally from Brownsville... I have been gone and lived in four other states as part of my old job. I used to really enjoy this restaurant until recently. The furniture is the same since ten years ago, the restaurant has an odor of old food and nasty carpet. The facility has not had a face lift since before... More
