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.

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.

I love their soup and salad as much as you want for lunch. Comes with warm, fresh from oven garlic bread. Yum.
