I have never eaten at an Olive Garden. We arrived, late - close to closing time and were treated as graciously as if they had just opened for the day. Food was good, service was excellent - and the prices were very reasonable!

As far as chain eateries go the Olive Garden brand is one of our favorites. We had a later in the evening mid-week dinner and as usual were pleased with the food and service. My wife had a build your own pasta dish which was good, along with my chicken marsala which made a nice meal. A glass of Merlot... More

I'm no big fan of Italian food--can't stand stewed tomato pulp--but I do like pizza and bread sticks and salad, so I gave Olive Garden a chance. Without fail, the food was horrible. How it's possible to screw up a bread stick is beyond me, but they were salty and dry and not at all tasty! The salad's good, I'll... More

Stopped in for a quick business lunch (solo) and was seated quickly. Only problem was that two families with load children were seated in my same area AFTER I was seated, so a little loud until the kids started eating! Food was standard and consistent Olive Garden fare.

We showed up a half hour before closing and were greeted with friendly and caring faces. The food never disappoints and the servers were so obliging.

Typical franchised restaurant. They have just done an interior renovation which seems to have allowed for more seats to be added. The waiter/ waitress makes this experience.

We had mozzarella sticks for appetizers, and the hot shrimp dish. The sticks tasted like the ones from Arby's and the shrimp was not spicy. The salad and breadsticks were good if a little overdressed, and the chicken marsala was short on stuffing. We also ordered the tour of Italy, Fettuccini alfredo, and Lasagna. The alfredo tasted like can sauce,... More
