I have eaten quite a few times at Olive Gardens around the country so I know what to expect. I was really in the mood for their salad tonight and it didn't disappoint. In addition I got the spaghetti with marinara sauce plus shrimp. Everything was spot on and my server was attentive and helpful. An excellent experience.

This place is on top of our list for chain restraints. The food and service is always above the rest and we look forward to eating here when in a hurry. They always get the food out fast. Triple Forks Hunting

Giselle, our waitress was friendly and attentive (as were all the staff). The restaurant was very clean; food was good and hot, and brought out quickly, . We will definitely go back.

Decided to give this restaurant another try. Big mistake! Those horrible pads were still on the tables. The service was bad and the food nothing like it used to be. We ate around 5:30 pm on a Saturday and the place was hot. Our salads did not have enough salad dressing on them. I have to say the breadsticks were... More

Olive Garden is a good choice for better than average Italian food. The quality is consistently good at all locations we have visited and this one does not disappoint. Staff attentive and we felt well cared for. Refills were constant. Food arrived quickly. There was nothing we were without.

I was shocked to see these dirty, unsanitary gadgets on our table. It simply took away from our dining experience. I have always considered The Olive Garden a fine dining restaurant and this was so not like them. Another thing, we did not receive our wine until we had almost finished our meal. The manager was nice and gave us... More

Probably the best restaurant in Alabaster. We always get the most tastiest dishes no matter what they are. The service and staff is second to none.

We eat at this Olive Garden at least once a month. The food is always fresh, consistent and innovative-4 Star. The service , as is the case these days in most restaurants, is a 3-Star. We never get the same server and they usually do not follow Olive Garden requirements of wine tasting, the manager visiting our table etc. This... More
