My Olive Garden

Olive Garden, Temple, is one of the better stores. The service is always good and never a long wait to be seated. The consistency is better than most and I always love the eggplant parmesan and the new wine selections are very good.

Not really a product of this specific location, but Olive garden in general is going through change. Certain menu items I always used to get, are no longer on the menu (pizza or anything spicy). It's annoying that they don't bring a ton of breadsticks, it's still unlimited, but you have to keep asking. The food is fine, but add... More

I was served dry, tasteless salmon with plain, flavorless broccoli. The cocktail I ordered, one of their creations, was also blah. The evening really went south though when our party had paid out and two of the five had left. The waitress told us that the tabletop payment system voided our payments and we needed to pay again. She, and... More

The location in Temple has always been good. It may be a chain restaurant but it doesnt feel that way when there. Food is always great. My favorite is the stuffed chicken marsala but several other items are great also. Our kids always beg to go back for more. We live nearby but it has easy access from the highway.

We have eaten here several times and my only complaint has been the older seating hostess. No smiles and a very sour attitude, unfriendly, not willing to cheerfully accommodate. She does not make us feel welcome at all. We are older too and really would like to see someone more upbeat, smiling and welcoming when we enter the restaurant instead... More

I just love the service you get here! I have visited the restaurant many times, and am never disappointed. The smiles and enthusiasm of everyone that works there reassures me every time that I made the right choice. THIS is a well run place, the food is always good!

We, the wife and I, ate here for her birthday- today. The greeter seated us at a booth- the PERFECT spot. We took our time to look over the menu. The waiter, Tori, offered us a taste of an excellent wine, you could smell the oak. I wish I could tell you what we ate but it was magnificent. A... More

I was dining with my sister, daughter, and 4 year old niece. This had to be the WORST dining experience I have ever had at ANY restaurant!! Our servers name was Stacy, and I have to say, that she looked and acted every bit of not wanting to work that evening.. Almost 8 minutes of waiting to be acknowledged, 6... More

This is a good Olive Garden. I suppose like most other Olive Gardens. The food is good. They have exceptional frozen margaritas. I always think that it's a little pricey for pasta.. but they have so many other selections and I think that about most Italian places.... All in all, it's a great place. I've never had a bad experience... More
