The food is delicious but on a recent trip, they were out of breadsticks. The restaurant is dirty, with the restrooms needing a major cleaning. The front of the building was nasty with empty cups, a beer bottle, and tons of cigarette butts. Please get a new manager!

My wife and I were returning from my doctors appointment and we talked about some place to eat that was nice and quiet with good service and a great salad. We decided on the Olive Garden. We were seated when we arrived at about 5:00 PM and were surprised that we got in so quickly, I guess this is a... More

I ordered pasta and paid extra for add-on shrimp. When it came to the table, the shrimp were crystal clear and looked like they were simply poured out of a frozen bag. I asked if they were grilled and the waiter said, " oh you wanted grilled? These are sautéed." I sent it back and 20 minutes later some grilled... More

As a lover of restaurants, and someone who is in the service industry and is not hard on servers, I hate to complain - - - but after that visit, we will never, ever be back. We were kind to our server, and didn't cause a scene, but today was the worst experience I've ever had at a Lubbock restaurant.... More

On our way through Lubbock going home, we had dinner at Olive Garden. The staff was friendly and the food was superb. The herb crusted Salmon was especially wonderful. The berry sangria wasn't half bad itself!

An 8 hour road trip found us longing for a familiar restaurant and we're glad we chose this particular Olive Garden. We sat at the bar for a quick meal and Ivan took good care of us. We've never seen anyone work as hard as he does. It is refreshing when an employee makes eye contact, listens, and ensures the... More

In my travels I have eaten at many Olive Gardens. My all time favorite here is the soup and salad with unlimited breadsticks. I have found the Lubbock location to be one of the best Olive Gardens I have eaten. The service and food quality here have always been very good and consistent.

salad and bread good, soup rather lackluster. Waitress very attentive and gave our large group good service. Last time I did business here was carry out and I was very disappointed with lack of service when I went to pick up and the food was so so. We have so many new restaurants here now, there's no need to go... More

The atmosphere and food in universaly very good at all of the Olive Gardens that we have visited over the country. They do offer great new items on the menus as well as the favorites. I highly recomend this resturant.

Brought the team in for dinner and the girls at the front were amazingly accomodating. There were lots of people there, yet they sat us quickly. The service was great and the food delicious as always. You cannot beat The quality and quantity for that price. Salad, soup, bread and main course.... $15 Little cash, lots of yummy!!
