Occasionally I check in to this Olive Garden for a take home dinner. The wait staff on the "to go" side is very good. Never have had an error on the order and they are friendly about it. They have a good variety on the menu and the food is good.

we had a short wait due to the size of our party, but was seated and served pretty quickly. Our waitress was good and didn't even use a notepad! She remembered everyone's order and kept drinks filled. Enjoyed our visit very much.

I have been reading in business news of late that Olive Garden is in trouble. I now understand why. We entered an empty lobby and were told we could be seated immediately but were then led to cramped and crowded bar seating. We asked for the main dining area instead and were told it would be a 25 minute wait.... More

Good service, pleasant waiter, but just middle of the road food. Did like their express lunch option.

The taste is average. The bread stick and salad were too salt. Our coupon is per table, but the waitress only discounted one person.

The friends that we were staying with in McKinney took us to this restaurant one evening and we had an excellent meal which was plentiful and well presented. Our waitress was very pleasant although she was very inexperienced - this turned out to be to our benefit when she offered us a bottle of wine at $5 when, in fact,... More

The food is consistently good here, although a bit pricey. Wait staff is almost always friendly. It is a popular restaurant and they are easily overwhelmed. So when there are lots of cars there, it is better to go somewhere else, unless you are willing to wait and Wait and WAIT.

We wanted some Italian food so came here with the family we were visiting with. We were seated right away and served right away. All was good, until they started bringing out food. Our son didn't want any salad or soup, so they brought out his fettuccini first. Then a little while later, they brought out my BIL's sampler plate.... More

We were seated in one of the back rooms where the air conditioner had obviously been turned off... after talking to the seater about it one of our party walked around to see if there were cooler rooms. The front one was a tad cooler we found out but was pretty full.... so we decided to leave especially since a... More
