“Not bad...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Usually pretty good. Can be hit or miss with the service. We've been going for about 7 years and more often it's average to good.

“Good but crowded.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Ate there on the Sunday evening before Christmas and had about a 30 minute wait to be seated. Seemed a little understaffed for this time of the year but the service was good once we were seated. Food was good. Typical for an Olive Garden. Good food and service.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

I love the Olive Garden. It never disappoints. The staff is very nice, and the food is great. It does get pretty crowded here, though.

“Soccer team dinner”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Arrived for dinner. Restaurant was expecting the team. Service was awkward and bill arrived with the food. Definitely felt like they were ready to go home before the group could finish their dinner. Not the service we have had at other Olive Garden restaurants.

“It's an Olive Garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

Food was good. The place was very busy so our service was a little slow, our waiter was good so he made up for that. I had the portobello ravioli which was delicious. Nothing overly special about this place. If you've ate at one olive garden you've ate at all of them.
