Good dinner

We came here for dinner one night. We had good service and enjoyed our dinner. Food was pretty good. Always love the salad it's my favorite thing at Olive Garden.

There are better Italian places to eat, although O.G. ain't that bad; good food and good service, but not the best by far. The only reason I went was because I had a gift card.

The salad and breadsticks were great.... When we finally got them! The table next to us arrived well after we placed our drink order - they had already finished their first round of salad and bread before we even got our drinks! The hickey parm was SO over cooked that it was like chewing leather! The restrooms were very filthy!... More

Where do I begin? Starting with there was 7 of us and they put us at a table big enough for 5 people. Our waiter makes it to us about 10 minutes later. Asks for our drink order. 10 minutes later we get it. (By the way this wasn't even during dinner rush!!) He asks what appetizers as he puts... More

The restaurant is clean and has decent service staff which seem to be the only pros I can honestly name. Our house salad was so saturated in italian dressing that the lettuce was soggy and it had almost an unbearable sour flavor. I ordered the lasagna because I am not very adventurous when it comes to food and because lasagna... More

The restaurant was Saturday-night-busy, so we had a 20+ minute wait. The waiting area inside was full; the the outside offered benches (also full) and a nice railing. Thank goodness is was a beautiful night. Our group of four was placed in the farthest back table possible--a little pinned-in, but tolerable. Our waiter was a bit stressed. When one of... More

The service and food at this location is really starting to go down hill. The servers don't seam to be trained very good. They don't know much about the menu and food. To much of a " I don't want to be here attitude". They, or the kitchen get the order wrong a lot. Much of the food seams to... More

Waitress named Melline was great and food was delivered hot and efficiently. Tasted great and we enjoyed some after dinner dessert of pannacotta with strawberry drizzle. Good food, great service, enjoyable visit with family.
