Must have salad with their dressing . I have travelled extensively and I would drive 7 hours to have their salad. What's best is that there is a lunch special: All You Can Eat Soup and Salad. Soup and salad is on my top 2 United States choices including San Francisco and Las Vegas!

Speaking personally, we have so many great locally owned restaurants in the area , I hate the chains. I take my mother-in-law here, she loves Olive Garden, but there are so many better locally owned owned restaurants out there. Consider Frank's Sunny Italy or Romeo and Juliet's!

I love Olive Garden primarily for their family friendly environment and all you can eat salad, bread sticks, and soup. This restaurant was no different from any other Olive Gardens. We went to the restaurant around 9:30 pm. We were seated immediately. The food was good and so are the drinks.

We had reservations and they took our orders well. We are about 15 in a group and the orders were handled well and the servers are accommodating and quick with requests. Good ambiance too.

My family and I stopped here for lunch and Lucy, our server took very good care of us. I haven't been to an Olive Garden in a very long time, and I know why I miss it...the food. Love the menu selections, but I have to gear my review towards our server, Lucy. From the start, she did her speech... More

I took my granddaughter and her boyfriend to Olive Garden on Easter. We called ahead and were seated within 5 minutes of arrival. Our server was friendly although she did not ask if anyone wanted more soup or salad.. Our meals were ample. Of course the bread sticks, soup and salad were excellent. I ordered a meal that was buy... More
