“Food Poisoning!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Got the steak. Was given--TWICE--watery AI Sauce. Diagnosed with food poisoning and was sick for three days. Never again! Guess you should order an Italian dish here...or not! Chains are not your friend!

“Somewhat Upscale Italian Mess Hall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

We stopped at this Olive Garden for a lunch of soup and salad because 1) we know OG is very reliable, no matter where you find one and 2) the place next door that we wanted to go was too crowded. All of the Olive Gardens, including this one, are pretty nice inside, except when you sit in an area that's like a mess hall, and the greeters and wait staff are reasonably competent, except when they try to clean up the table when one or more guests aren't finished - a nasty habit that you'd never experience in a decent restaurant. The other server complaint, similar to the rushed cleanup, is when dishes are delivered before a diner is finished with a previous course, so that the table gets crowded with stuff that sits there and gets cold. Wait until the diner is ready, please! Other than these two issues, the food at this OG was... pretty much the same as all the others. The unlimited salad was pretty plain. The starter, in this case mussles, was not bad. The soups were okay. All for about $30 for two. Is it worth it? Obviously it is for many folks, because most OGs are pretty crowded and their ratings are pretty high. But is OG up to the standards of some fine little local Italian joint where the chef is momma mia and her daughter waits on you? Not even close.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

The usual fare from Olive Garden, but with friendly staff and quick service. Quite acceptable.
