Dependable service and great flavor

This OG is like most. Nice homey atmosphere, great service (tho a little slow at times), wonderful flavor and always courteous managers and host team! They are also active in giving back to communities via charity donations. Nice little restaurant- highly recommend!

I do not like red sauce so I wasn't really looking forward to eating here. But this place is about so much more than red sauce. The pasta was awesome, the appetizers were great I had the mixed plated and loved all of the options. The thing liked best was the Alfredo sauce, it was definitely not from a jar.... More

I thought I had an e-coupon for $5 for their unlimited soup and salad lunch but I couldn't find it. I decided to go anyway as it had been some time since I'd eaten at Olive Garden. I arrived to a parking lot that was at least half full and quickly got seated. Then the wait began. After awhile I... More

Had dinner with friends at Olive Garden last Thursday evening. Wait of 25 minutes to be seated. Lots of empty tables, but they didn't seem to have servers to take care of folks. Our waiter was pleasant and met our needs. Refills on water were slow, but he was good with breadsticks and salad. We also had a bottle of... More

Consistently tastey. Great atmosphere, friendly service. The unlimited soup and salad is always filling, and reasonably priced (about $7.50). Pasta always in large portions, salad fresh. Can't complain.

I had a friend visit from out of town, and while I would not have chosen Olive Garden (in favor of something local, not a chain), my grandkids wanted OG so we went. The service was wonderful - very friendly, very attentive; and the food was great!

My daughter and granddaughter went in for a late lunch on Saturday. We always get the soup, salad and breadsticks. It was very fresh, and filling. The atmosphere was wonderful, our waiter was attentive and very nice, we will be back.

The food was not good at all, but maybe I am too picky about my Italian food. On the plus side the service was good, the waitresses worked quickly and were very friendly.

Enjoyed our visit and the featured promo "buy one -take one" was perfect since we were heading to a resort the next day and it gave us another meal. Good value. We were seated quickly and the service was prompt, friendly and attentive. Only criticism is my youngest son had a glass of chocolate milk and the server gave him... More

There is nothing special about this Olve Garden as compared to others I have visited. Our waiter was what made our meal so enjoyable. He welcomed us and immediately offered to get us more wine (we waitied at the bar quite a while for a table and we were about to leave when we finally got seated). He quickly returned... More
