“EXCELLENT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

We went to dinner at Olive Garden the night after a lousy dinner at Timberwood in Pigeon Forge. Olive Garden was absolutely wonderful. The food was fabulous, the wait staff was attentive, and the atmosphere was great. If you go, ask for Shellie. She is one of the best waitresses that we had while visiting the area!

“Addled waiter”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

We were promptly greeted and seated by the host staff and then ignored for 10 minutes, even though it was relatively empty and waiters were standing by the kitchen door talking. When our waiter did come around, it was to tell us he would be right back, 10 minutes later he was. We ordered drinks and our entrees. 15 minutes later the breadsticks came out like a wet sponge, soaked in butter (we had asked for breadsticks without butter, if that was possible or none if it wasn't,) he spilled my hot drink because he insisted handing it over the salad bowl (salad mixed with hot drink, not that appetizing,) and our without ice had more ice than water. A moment later he brought out our soup, it was Toscana( I think that is what he said), we ordered minestrone. Another 10 minutes and we had our minestrone, but no crushed red pepper or the water without ice. We reminded him about water and pepper, when he brought it out he apologized and said his mind was elsewhere. Finally he proceeded to unload on us about some credit card transaction that wouldn't go through and how a dog attacked him the day before, the conversation (one-sided) was especially awkward because as he told of his tales of woe he stared away from us, like he was recalling a fond memory from childhood.

“Excellent, as always!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

I don't know that I have ever had bad food from the Olive Garden and this visit was no exception. We had Landon as a server and he was superb! He had everything we asked for to our table in a timely manner and was exceptionally helpful in getting us the best deal with the specials they were offering. Stop in and ask for Landon because you will NOT be disappointed...this guy was all over it!
