My go to place for track meets

This is my second year coming to Hampton for the 757 track meet. I like to make sure my son eats a high carb dinner before he races the next day. Olive Garden has an exhaustive list of pasta options that even my finicky 9 year old can choose from. This year, because we were a little short on time... read more

We dined at this Olive Garden in a party of twenty-five. We were prepared to wait to be seated, but left feeling completely disappointed. We called in an hour early and learned we'd have to wait thirty more minutes once we got there. After we were seated and our orders were taken, the first people who got their food ate... More

what can you say, there should be no reason to mix up an order but they do. Thank heaven for their lunch menu, salad, soup, and breadsticks.

My family recently had dinner at the Olive Garden in Hampton, VA. The Olive Garden is a favorite place for us to eat. There was no crowd when we arrived and we were seated and served promptly. All of our entrees were delicious and all the plates were clean by the time we finished. The staff were all great.

Olive garden has good italian food. Server Sarah was very nice, very helpful. Have been here many times. Sometimes can be loud with large families and kids. Should have 1-2 rooms that are adults only.

I'd never been to an Olive Garden before, and all I hear are good things about it back in the UK from those who have travelled in the States. I had to try it. We arrived and it was very busy, granted, we were very well informed about waiting times and what was actually left on the menu - whilst... More

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

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 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
