Olive Garden...

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... read 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

If you like Olive Garden, this one of their restaurants to visit. Service is good. Waitresses/Waiters are friendly and out going. Soup and Salad is superb.

It's been a while since we have eat here. The food, service, cleanliness & waitress was all good, but a little more expensive than before. Like everything else I guess.

The food was as expected. They had misordered one of the entrees, but fixed it quickly enough that the person was able to eat with the family. The restaurant was busy, but we had a reservation. They accommodated us within a few minutes of arriving. The best part of my experience was the waiters, Joseph and Dwight. They offered us... More

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.
