Good food. Good service.

Greeted as soon as we walked into door. We had called ahead for a table, so were seated immediately. Prompt service. Salad and bread sticks replenished quickly. Food was as good always. We were given a sample of wine to help us decide which we wanted to order. Friendly and attentive service.

This is a busy restaurant, service & server were wonderful. Food is always good whenever we have been to an Olive Garden restaurant. Never ending soup & salad along with other fabulous dishes provided energy for shopping!

Great service at this location and just across the parking lot from our hotel, we sat in the bar and the bartender was friendly and attentive. His menu suggestions were right on the money. The hostess told us we couldn't sit where we wanted to sit but we did anyway and the bartender was cordial. We expressed our displeasure to... More

Evening dinner (actually our anniversary) and we were pretty unsatisfied overall. Server did great so that was fine. Salad, breadsticks and appitizers were good but they've done those for years and it doesn't take much. Drinks were 1. Ok on the Berry Moscato mix. Kinda nice but not really all that special 2. Berry sangria very disappointing. Watery, mostly ice... More

Hubby and I went for a late dinner on a rainy Friday night. It wasn't very busy and we got a table quickly. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The restaurant now has those little monitor things on the tables (I've also seen them at Chilis), and I find them more annoying than helpful. If I wanted to watch a... More

Lousy service, lousy attitude of wait staff. Ate a little late in the evening and seemed to be getting the dregs of what was left in the kitchen pots. Ordered tiramisu, however, could not have it as it "was frozen."

Arrived when they opened. Taken to booth that we cleaned off as staff walked away. Salt and food debris on seat. Table had clear sticky stuff on it. Ordered without a problem. Decided to try fried artichoke with dip. It was very good and yet the dipping sauce was a mustard base strong mustard taste. Which some of us like... More

The menu was great! Every meal I tried was amazing! Plenty for the price. You shouldn't leave hungry! Nothing beats their salads. The staff was very knowledgeable and polite!
