“Good service, good food on very busy night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We ate there on a busy Friday night so there was a bit of a wait to be seated, but the service was very good, the food was excellent, the waiter was friendly and engaging. He was apologetic about the wait for our food, but honestly, the wait time did not seem out of the ordinary. The atmosphere in the dining room was comfortable and energetic. It felt like the restaurant was well managed even though it was crowded and busy.

“Good Eats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

The food was great and the service was wonderful. It was clean and the soups, salad, and breadsticks were all fresh. The best part of the meal was the sweet tea

“Good, as expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

For a franchise, you expect the same food and service wherever you go. Server was very nice. Too much dressing on the salad. Otherwise, good experience. Pasta is over priced but that is true at every Olive Garden. You pay for consistency and when you are on travel, you dont want any gastro surprises.

“Good lunch and dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We go occasionally for the soup and salad at lunch and it is pretty good. Service is a little slow bringing refills on soup bowls and lunch is at least an hour. Dinner has always been good and the restaurant has always been clean and the wait staff is professional and friendly.
