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.

On of the worst dining experiences that I have had in a long time. I would have complained to the manager if I had seen one. Took my son for lunch. They brought the wrong appetizer, took it back to get the correct one. Server informed us that the correct appetizer wasn't ready but our food was waiting in the... More

I am sentimental about this location. It was the spot for my first date with my husband. The last couple of times we have gone, we have had issues with the service and had to speak to the manager. The manager apologized both times, and this last time, he remedied the situation immediately. The food was good as always.

I've be going to Olive Gardens once or twice a year for over 20 years. I've always considered it a very nice dining experience. However, the last few times I've been, I've not been as pleased. The servers seem to be younger, less experienced, and a little less professional. The food has gone from excellent to good. I'll still give... More

My daughter and I had a wonderful meal with one exception which was very minor which was immediately corrected and we were given a gift card as well.

We love Olive Garden. And the only place to get pasta in Longview Texas. The food is always good and the service is not bad. It's a little pricey though. Their salad is good and the soup is not bad either. And it was my birthday. Sign up for emails and get free appititzer or dessert for your birthday

I've eaten here often enough that I can say the meals are always good - nothing more, nothing less. I highly recommend the Italian Margaritas, though. And I'm usually a beer drinker.

I haven't been to a bad Olive Garden. Food & service are great at this location. Salads are wonderful. The main dishes I've tried were great. The Peach Bellini iced tea is fabulous. I do not care for their breadsticks though. Great place for a luncheon with the girls or date night with the spouse.

I had the sausage potato soup and salad and it was very good. They offered us three samples of free wine. The service was great and my co-workers enjoyed their food. I ordered a cocktail and it wasn't great, however.
