“Pasta, Soup, Salad, Dessert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Love Olive Garden with its special combinations with salad/soup, meal, and 2 desserts. All good and service was great. We also had a coupon. Cost is reasonable and food is good quality.

“Good food and convenient.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

I stopped in alone for lunch while on a business trip. I ate at the bar and was pleased with both my food and service. The bartender helped me to select a glass of wine to my liking. Her permitted me to sample it before pouring me a full glass.

“I'll Live With The Olive.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

I have been here several times in the last few months, because of their special offers that they have advertised. The food is decent and the prices affordable.....you never leave hungry. This and the last time, the service was not that good. I also had to as the same server (maybe she is new?) for bread, as I see one of the other reviewers had to. Perhaps this is a new policy? Anyhow, all in all, a nice place to eat with friends, or by yourself.

“Never Ever Again!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

Terrible service!!!! Me and my family went to this Olive Garden and the waitress was terrible. We order the Canellonis with Lobster and Shrimp the employee doesn't even offer to bring salad or bread. When we ask her for the bread the waitress said that she usually doesn't bring bread unless the customers ask. She didn't even ask if we want any desserts. Terrible Jacqlyn... Tried to do a better service.
