“Stop before shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

Always had a great meal and service. Salads are worth going for and those darn bread sticks are sure to fill you up.

“This Olive Garden Location Wasn't Very Good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

The food came out cold and it didn't seem fresh at all. I've eaten at a lot of Olive Garden's and were good. There may be a management problem at this location.

“Food portions lacking plus”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

A friend and I went to try the eggplant parmigiana.The salad and breadsticks were excellent. I was surprised at the small portions and lack of sauce and mozzarella cheese on the entre.. The eggplant slices were only about 3 inches wide. For $12 bucks I expect good size portions. This is really a let down. I guess Olive Garden has followed in the steps of other restaurants by cutting back on portions to increase profit. The service was excellent and the place very clean. The greeters could do a better job then just saing "hello". In the past they were known for thier generous portions.
Guess I won't returning. Low food value and quality.

“good commercial didnt make the grade”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011

we went to this restaurant because we kept seeing the commercial and they claimed you could try all these different dishes, it looked so good. the truth of the matter is on your first dish they bring you a bowl with so much pasta and a little sauce you have no room to try anything else. and the first dish was not that good. the bread and salad were good but who wants $40 bread and salad for lunch. we are on a diet during the week and look forward to eating a good meal on the weekend. this fell short.
