“Italian food finally!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

This town needed a new place to eat and Olive Garden has been perfect for us. Food and service has been excellent except for one bad experience with a waitress but another waiter took over. One of my favorite parts is the ice cold mint at the end of the meal!

“Wonderful Leisurely Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Stopped far a late lunch to miss the crowd of daily lunch workers in the area. Was seated immediately by a very friendly waitress. As we knew we wanted the unlimited soup and salad we ordered as soon as our drinks arrived. The waitress asked if we would like our salad first, which I liked as we were not in a hurry. My husband was not sure which soup he wanted, so she suggested the chicken, which she said was like an Italian version of chicken and dumplings. She told him if he did not like it she would bring him another kind. The salad was plentiful, cold and crisp, we really like the dressing and brought a bottle home with us. I had the Minestrone, it was full of vegetables and not too spicy. I also had a mini Amaretto Tiramisu, delicious. The waitress returned several times to see if we needed anything. It was a wonderful lunch, as we do not eat out often we enjoyed being able to eat and not feel rushed.

“Never dissapointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I eat at OG's quite often. With the exception of the Branson, MO. location, I have always been happy. This location is no exception. Great food, fast service, clean and easy access from the highway.

“Standard Olive Garden quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Good food, good service and nice surroundings are the staple with the Olive Garden franchise. The Huntsville branch is no exception-- they are busy due to the fact that there are no fine dining establishments in this backwater burg. As a college town, the quality of restaurants tends to lean toward beer joints and pub food. Hopefully, the success of this franchise will encourage other better restaurant chains to establish a presence here. Praying for a Pappadeaux's!

“January 2013 Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

If your time is limited during your lunch time, try the Bar. You do not need to wait in line or wait to be served. Service is fast and if "Michelle" is working that day (Thursday - Sunday) you will be served in no time. We have only ordered the salad and soup while sitting there. This area is quite and you can carry on a conversation.
