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.

Our server Mike was a gentle giant so professional and perfectly friendly that this was one of our best dining experiences in hundreds of dining experiences! Our 3-year-old asked Mike the rhetorical question, "You are so happy"? Mike's reply, Yes I am! The food was good too. Thanks Mike!

I took my company to eat lunch 8/11/2015. We were seated very quickly. The server came, took our drink order and left us with the lunch menu. By the time she returned with the drinks, we were ready to order from the lunch menu. Out of 3 adult orders off the menu, only 1 order (which was not a lunch... More

I'm just going to say, when the food is just about average anyway, you at least want it fresh and hot! We went here on a trip because its my friend's favorite place. I don't think the food is great, but i thought it was at least consistent. We went on a really busy night, but didn't have to wait... More

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
