“Always Good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Olive Garden never puts out a bad meal, no matter where they are located. I love their all you can eat bread sticks and salad. And if you get soup, salad and bread sticks as your meal, all of it is "all you can eat." They change their menu quite often and almost always have a special or two on it. The menu offers something for everyone. I was quite upset though with Olive Garden when they removed anything veal from their menu. What's an Italian meal without veal? No such thing. Please bring back the veal, Olive Garden.

“Soup and Salad Luncheon”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

This is one of my regular stops after work with a friend for an early dinner (at lunch prices). All you can eat soup and salad 6.99. Careful, the drinks are expensive.

“Bad timing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

We love olive garden, but the last several times we have gone here the service is lacking. They bring out our salad, apps and meal at once! Its very annoying trying to eat with a table full of food. The wait staff is overly attentative. The food is good but the last apps we got were bad. The shrimp was bad had a funky smell and the other dish, its a fried shrimp dish with sauce, there was no sauce. I think if the wat staff spent less time talking to customers they would be able to pay attention to the timming of the food.

“Healthy Salads and Soups”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We were recently here for partaking its healthy soups and salads. The ambiance of this restaurant is superb! A fit place to go with the entire family. Service is very good, but very crowdy during weed-ends.
