Olive Garden

I like the salad that is complimentary. There are some delicious dishes but the servings are larger than necessary. Plan to share with another. It's a chain so the food is pretty much the same in every town. There is something to be said for consistency when on the road.

I always enjoy Olive Garden - it's always clean, reliable and relaxed so I was therefore disappointed on a recent visit to the Longview branch. We were seated in a very quiet area with no atmosphere but it did fill up during our visit and as ever, the food was lovely. We were very dismayed however to be presented with... More

I enjoy coming here occasionally. The salad is always fresh and the menu is delicious. I find it a bit pricey, but nice for a change

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
