We like Olive Garden, especially the soup and salad choices. They are rather pricey and require purchase of larger portions than we often need. Their coupons are only good with multiple purchases or large quantities. We would be more prone to visit if there were coupons that we could use or at least offer a senior discount.

Have eaten here several times. Food is always good, but what i like best is the service. The waitstaff are always pleasant and attentive. Manager always comes by the table to make sure everything is ok. Would recommend.

I ordered food on two different days while staying in Temple. The staff was great and the food was very good. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. On one of my trips I had a friend with me. She had been there before and ordered food as well. She raved about this restaurant.

There are not a lot of choices in Temple, especially if you are just passing down the highway. This is a chain restaurant with decent Italian food and average prices. Staff has always been good. Have visited on multiple occasions.

Olive Garden would not be my choice for good Italian food. That being said, I enjoy lunch there with my husband and my friends. We always get the soup and salad lunch, which is tasty and reasonable. You really can't go wrong there.

I love this Olive Garden!! The food is always great, and the staff is friendly. If you do dine here...ask for Travis.. He is the best server ever!! Try the Bellini Tea. It's a peach tea that has a wonderful taste! Recommend it to anyone passing through!
