seems like any where you stop in and eat at an Olive Garden the food is always good, service is typically fine. Nothing off the charts, but can be counted on as a great place to eat when out and about.

While staying at hotel next door, my daughter and I walked across the parking lot and had a GREAT meal at the Olive Garden. I can't say enough about the new menu! I used to only go to the Olive Garden for soup and salad, but now there are so many options that I LOVE on the menu! The service... More

I was stranded overnight in Onalaska due to weather. Right across the parking lot from my hotel was Olive Garden. I'm a soup/salad guy. No wine, iced tea. A wait staff nightmare. No way to get my bill up with add on's, so typically I get the bums rush in order to turn the table, but not this day in... More

I found the same service as the other O.G. 's I have been to. Clean and fast. We did only get 3 bread sticks,but they did come back often. Good food, fine service , and fair prices. I recommend a stop if you are a hearty eater.

Usually I dine in at the Olive Garden but on the road and thought a carry out might be nice. Wrong choice! Overlooked pasta was the reward. Unlimited bread sticks doesn't apply to carry out. I asked for an extra and only two come with a carry out. No exceptions can be made, I asked. They were completely stale anyway.... More

The food was excellent as expected, and the manager came twice just to check on us and fix a dish we had ordered wrong -- got a new dish even though it was our ordering fault, not our waitress's fault. Very friendly and welcoming - exceeded previous experiences at other Olive Gardens.

Wouldn't normally bother with chains like this as they clearly lack authenticity. However my wife and I were pleasantly surprised by the food quality and standard. Staff were very friendly and overall we had a nice meal. We would definately visit an Olive Garden again.

Just enjoyed our most frequent meal at Olive Garden: a lunch of soup and salad. Love the lettuce salad served very cold with Italian dressing, lots of bread sticks, and tasty soup (mine was zuppa toscana). We appreciate the very attentive and cordial staff too.

I recently went here for a lunch with co-workers but won’t be going back anytime soon. The food was good (cheese calzone was delicious) but the service left much to be desired. We were awkwardly questioned by the GM about our food. She had wanted to know why only ½ of our party had our entrees (2 separate servers was... More

I have to say that this Olive Garden has great servers. Always pleasant and accomodating. It doesn't hurt that the salad is great too.
