First of all, our server, Darren was great! It had been awhile since I'd been to OG. I was meeting a friend for dinner. I was given a GC a while ago for $40. We each had a drink. I love their Sangria but I noticed that for the same price, you now get half the amount you used to... More

The food is always great. The only thing that changes is the staff and the specials. Our waitress was incredible. Ravi was here name, or I think it was. Either was she was attentive, timely, and helpful. She made our routine trip to olive garden amazing this time. Don't forget to look up online for coupon code 12. Free dessert... More

The restaurant has a comfortable vibe because of the good service and yummy food. Although the wait for Olive Garden takes a while, the food is worth waiting for. Their food is definitely worth waiting for. Their garlic bread is one reason the food is worth waiting for. Its fresh out of the oven, so its warm. The garlic bread... More

We stopped in here for lunch with the intention of having the soup and salad for lunch. They had a special which we decided to try. The waiter seemed very distracted and did not come back enough to fill water glasses and to check on the status of the soup and salad and breadsticks. We stopped in later during the... More

First off, Going to OLY Olive Garden is a real treat for the wife and I, and we always look forward to the trip. This dreadful experience started with finding an obviously dirty soup spoon. It was quickly replaced, with apologies from the waiter( who was fantastic!). As I ate the soup, I found a hair in it. That was... More

I love it, too, of course. The endless salad bowl, fantastic Italian food and great service makes this restaurant a great place for a meal. Even if you can't stay, grab one of the combos of a meal ready-to-eat with another to bake or microwave at home. Great selection and yummy food. Enjoy!

We showed up for our sons birthday dinner and were made to wait over an hour to be seated! Perhaps the “no reservation on the weekends” policy should be revisited! After we were FINALLY seated, our service was horrid! Granted, we had a pretty large group but, we had to ASK for breadsticks! Service aside, we were most disappointed with... More

Worse service ever! Waited 45 min for drinks and appetizers. Food was ordered before salad, appetizers or even bread sticks were brought to the table. When we were given our coasters they we thrown across the table like a frizbee. We had two waiters because we had a "big" party... Only 9 people.... and while one was amazing he was... More

We had the best waiter ever. He helped us with our decisions and we never wanted for anything. Food was excellent. We had a nice table close to the back so that we could visit and enjoy the dinner. We never felt rushed as you do with some food chains.
