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.

We often head to Olive Garden for their unlimited soup, salad, and bread sticks. We have never been disappointed in service or quality or quantity nor have we felt rushed to "turn the table". I really like the minestrone soup and love the salad dressing. A very good lunch-time value.

the food is great but pricy for what you get. Unfortunately there is no Fazolis at Exit 7 anymore to get good italian for a cheaper price than Olive Garden.

My wife and I went on Sunday Apr. 27. She had seafood Brodetto, pretty good. I ordered spaghetti with meatballs and an Italian sausage. The waitress came out with ONE meatball. Jeez, can ya SPARE IT? There are lots of less-expensive options nearby ... Like Cheddar's.

My wife and I had soup & salad at this Olive Garden today. The service was quick and excellent. The food, as always at Olive Garden was excellent. Our last experience at Olive Garden was in Kingsport, TN, and the service was deplorable. This restaurant renewed my faith in Olive Garden

Olive garden on the whole used to be a great restaurant. NOT ANYMORE! This location is fairly new ( 2-4 years ). It was a welcomed new addition to the chain as the closest location to where we live had been in Johnson City...about an hour away and we had stopped going there because it had gone severely down hill....

The several meals from this "Italian" corporate restaurant presents poor red sauce pasta that is devoid of flavour and character. And the meals are very expensive for what is served. Very ordinary wine is expensive, very expensive! The pasta tonight was macaroni with small 'medallions' of chicken and anointed with a bland slightly pink-beige "sauce" and three spinach leaves with... More

very clean stop, very slow service, food overall at OG is becoming overpriced for the family. We will go back, but not as often, more competition should make for more value for the family

Tonight me, my wife and two kids went here and have enjoyed it in the past. But things change, our waitress was very good, but a waitress from another table ruined the visit. When we were to be seated there was a large party with three tables together in the dinning room, we wanted a booth and the booth was... More
