Olive Garden used to be a favorite of ours, but not so much anymore. The food is still good, but it has become pricy and service hss definitely suffered. More menu items feature pasta and sauces instead if meat, probably due to austerity measures in the kitchen. Service was slow and inattentive, but it seems there are also now more... More

When all else fails go to Olive Garden. Staff in this location was great, a bit slow getting started but overall ended well. Location kinda hard to find for a visitor to a new city.

Waitress was very friendly. Small town charm. Great food with seafood Italian food. I also enjoyed the water.

This is the typical Olive Garden. Usual decor and menu. Lunch is a busy time, but the service is quick and timely. Have been there for both lunch and dinner, and reasonably pleased each time. Some argue its not really Italian, but while that may or may not be true, the food is good, and we have not been disappointed.

The service here is very good. Very friendly staff. The bar area needs a TV. Olive Gardens as a whole are just a little too much money for what the food is

We had up and down experience with this place. Quite busy all the time. Waitress/ waiter can be somewhat rush and not attentive. Food is ok most of the time just like any Olive Garden.

This is one of the better Olive Gardens I have been to when it comes to helpful and caring staff. While the food can be nearly the same in each OG, some seem to do a bit more and this is one place. Recommend it.

Love the cheesecake. It was a nice way to end my day. Soup and salad for lunch never disappoints, either.
