I happen to think the prices are to high for salad and bread sticks - the food is tasty but nothing special and not great if you are on a diet or have heart issues (salty). An average chain restaurant - a good place if you want to know what you will get before you get there. Good service, nice... More

One of my favorite restaurants of all time! Very classy with the best food choices. You can't go wrong with any of there pasta dishes. The classic 'soup, salad, and bread sticks' is my favorite. Great deals as well all year round. Sometimes the waiting area is very full and crowded but they do take reservations so make sure to... More

My buddies and I visited for dinner on Friday night and Olive Garden was very crowded -- and we quickly could see why. Their friendly staff served us a delicious dinner, with all-you-can eat salad, pasta, rolls. And it wasn't too expensive. What's not to like? It had been a few years since I've eaten at an Olive Garden and... More

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.
