Ordered from there 'buy one, take one' menu so that we could take back leftovers for our students. (We were on a school trip). The other teacher and I ordered different chocolate desserts and were surprised at the size of the portion given the $5.99 price. I would not order dessert again.

After traveling all day we were looking for a quick bite to eat at a sit-down restaurant. We decided to sit at the bar rather that wait for a table. It took forever to get a table cleaned. Never received any service from the bartenders, but a waiter Luiz took over our table and did a great job. He got... More

I've been to this Olive Garden numerous times. Always a good experience, but last night we went and I have to say it's going down hill. Maybe because some really good competition is just a couple of doors down but if they want to increase their business they need to make some serious changes. It was not super crowded but... More

Olive Garden is always good for a nice Italian mel, it is far from authentic Italian and a little over priced for their precooked delivered meals that they just reheat up and serve. But it is always a nice atmosphere and the food is nothing to complain about but also nothing to rave about.

I have eaten at this location several times with my wife and hired men. Good service when it was just 2 of us and when there were 7 of us. Salad is fantastic hope you all enjoy as much as I

Calling OG an Italian restaurant is like saying Taco Bell is authentic Mexican food. Their bread is more like a hot dog bun with garlic powder on it.
