“Loved the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

This area is beautiful, cleaned with beautiful big houses. I went there and had a blast with good people. I love the area and would recommend it to all. I will definitely be back.

“So-So Food; So-So Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

The Olive Garden is a compromise restaurant you go to when you are not able to get consensus from a diverse crowd and you wind up settling for mediocre entrees, average service and average to higher than average pricing.

“Hope Your Waitress Isn't a Psychic”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We waited 35 minutes for a simple order. We had to ask our waitress if it was almost ready. Her response: "I am sure it is", then she disappeared for another 10 minutes. This chain is steadily going downhill. It is overpriced, the food is bland, and the wait isn't worth it. We won't go back

“Good Food, Fair Prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Good Italian-American fare. Innovative entrees and all you can eat soup, salad and bread sticks (all very good) are an economical but delicious option.
