“Reliable food, pleasant surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014 via mobile

The Olive Garden is one of those reliable franchises that I can always count on. In this case we were not all that hungry, so we ordered salad and one entry. Without being asked the waitress divided up the entry for us. We had chicken with a delicious sauce. We could have easily split one salad between us. The Caesar salad needs a little something - I can not pin point what, but the taste is a bit bland. We were there around 7 pm on a Tues. night, and they were not very busy so we seated right away. Olive Gardens always provide good service, very clean facilities and friendly service.

“Soup & Salad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The Soup & Salad is a great buy for lunch, and we do it about once a month. Usually we are in a hurry & the Soup & Salad is on the table in a heartbeat! Bread stick complement the bottomless Soup & Salad & I usually have 3 different Soups!

“Over-priced and unappealing menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We were a party of 5 and the waiter was not very interested since we were his last table. Menu choices were not very many and not very appealing. The appetizer came in with no plates. The breads came in too late. Overall experience was not very good.

“A very good family meal and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Having just driven nine hours to Raleigh, the family wanted something close and Italian. We chose the Olive Garden and were glad we did. The server was very friendly and food good as usual. The service was quick, and for a family of four, the meal was just what we wanted after a long drive. We were happy and full when we left.
