Manager finally came to bar tend. Salad was crisp and fresh grated cheese nice as topping. We had the 2 for $25. Serving was plenty and came... More

I just think that Olive Garden in general is not as good as it used to be. I sill like the minestrone soup, salad, and breadsticks. The entrees are just average. i had a chicken entree that was just okay. The atmosphere is good with nice decorations.

This restarant in Bristol featured the standard Olive Garden atmosphere, service, and food. It was my wife's and my first opportunity to try the new menu choices. I was... More

This is a standard Olive Garden location. They are always consistent and the food is good. Not really authentic Italian, but good. We needed a stop along I-81 and this was far better than the fast food options. Our food was served promptly and hot. The salad, as always, is very good.

Food was amazing as usual. Even though they made a mistake with my order, they were quick to fix it and even comped my meal without me asking or expecting them too. Will definitely visit again!

This particular Olive Garden is THE BEST Olive Garden I have eaten dinner at.. I orders the veggie pasta primavera & it was absolutely delicious! I waiter also offered great service and was very knowledgable about the area and annual events. I would highly recommend TJIS Olive Garden when visiting the Bristol area again. I will be back!

Like all Olive Garden's one either hates them or loves them. My family really likes their food and the size of a meal. We always bring back extra.
