Better than it use to be.

Wow was very good. Went with three other people and had Olives garden endless bowls. Beverage, salad or soup and bread sticks come with meal. The food was hot and you can pick the meat, sauce you would like to have or have two kinds of sauce. The servers where so nice and didn't look at us funny if... read more

Food was typical OG but 2 people felt sick after lunch. Staff was friendly enough but just have a feeling the they need to check food safe measures as it is a chain and sometimes that can get a little sloppy.

Always been a fan of Olive Garden until our last visit. Salad had a hint of bleach to it as if used to clean their cutting board and not rinsed well enough. Waiter said he'd advise the manager although one never came, nor did the waiter offer to replace it. Tried their new garlic shrimp scampi with tomato and asparagus... More

They really have it figured out. From breadsticks, to salad, to entrees to the little chocolates. They make takeout a breeze. The kids love to eat here, but there are times when we just need takeout and Olive Garden does not disappoint.

I can't believe the prices at this restaurant. And the food is average at best. I guess there are many people who will pay a lot of money for average unhealthy food because they can't cook. High fat. High salt. High sugar. Very unhealthy. I only ate here because a friend suggested it for convenience of meeting. Never again.

Great soup and salad and breadsticks--as always. It was late and we did not want a full meal, but this hit the spot.

No matter which location you go to the food is always great. Service was excellent, atmosphere is great, good spot for couples or families. Always a great choice.

This wasn't our first choice, because we had two small children with us, but we're glad this is where we ended up. Their placemats for children are the best I've seen. Where's Waldo type. Kept 3 and 5 year olds busy. The soup, salad and breadsticks were great, as was the appetizer called lasagna something. A little pricey, but seemed... More
