“Please don't go away!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

So sorry to hear that HQ is seriously contemplating closing the OG op's. I LOVE the salad bowl, never ending and yummy, personally feel their pastas and pork dishes are superior to Caraba's who tend to over -salt all the time. Great value, nice staff...hope they survive!!

“Nice, Quick Pre-Mother's Day Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

We were in the area for a mother's day celebration and decided to have an early dinner here with baby in tow. The wait was minimal and it was a nice day to sit outside during the wait. Once seated, we had prompt and super-friendly service. Tried a couple wines and settled on a low-cal cocktail from the ever-expanding menu. The salad was great as always, and we got fast and generous refills. The server was nice enough to bring a spare bowl to feed baby and was very gracious as he banged on the table and tried to grab everything in sight. Overall, the food was pretty good, the desert was very good, and the drinks were just ok. Great service and atmosphere, especially dining with family. One of the best Olive Gardens I have been to.

“Slowest service ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

The whole experience went by very slowly, never filled my water and waited super long long between every course and even to get our order taken. Our waitress seemed to have forgotten about us...

“Good dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

Food is pretty good. We come occasionally. They have more menu variety, which is a good thing. Recommend they make a better salad.
