This has always been our go to restaurant in honor of my husband's 30 years of military service. However, next year we will choose somewhere else. The quality of the food has greatly deteriorated and the service was horrible.

We met relatives there for a family dinner get together and it was quite nice. There were only four of us and each of us were pleased with the food. We first shared the Stuffed Mushrooms as an appetizer and they were very good. I had the Eggplant Parmigiana and found it delicious. The serving staff were extremely friendly and... More

When hubby isn't around for dinner, I like to grab a To Go order at Olive Garden. This time I ordered online and was pleased to see that I could customize my salad and leave out onion and peppers. The meal was ready at precisely the time they said it would be and they package it such that the hot... More

The food was good and the service even better! Our wait time was incredibly short for a Friday evening. Would definitely recommend

I love Olive Garden and make it a point to grab takeout soup and salad when I dine solo. The salad is always delis and unique to Olive Garden and the Zuppa Toscano soup is simply wonderful. My fave appetizer is the Calamari and best mixed drink is the Peach Bellini. They must have stringent training because waitstaff is always... More

This is Olive Garden. If you're familiar with the chain. This is one of their locations. It's a popular spot with locals so call ahead or make reservations. It's located across from the Mall about 5 miles from the center of town- definitely not walking distance from downtown Lincoln sites. Menu is typical. Food is good, plentiful and tasty. Menu...

Our Saturday evening dining experience had an operations issue, but it was resolved by quality management. I ordered the Long Island Limoncello drink and my wife ordered the Mango Martini. After waiting 10-15 minutes, our server indicated they were having a problem with locating one of the ingredients for the Long Island drink. The drinks arrived about five minutes later.... More

Stopped in mid-afternoon for a late lunch. I ordered lasagna, everyone else had the soup/salad/breadsticks thing. Service was slow; our waitress seemed unable to string two thoughts together without forgetting something. The lettuce had more the consistency of seaweed, tasted old. Breadsticks were hard, lasagna was burned on the edges. This used to be one of the better Olive Gardens... More
