The olive garden is by far my favorite place to eat! The service is really good workers are very friendly. I eat there so much they seem more like family to me. The prices are reasonable and you never leave hungry.

Love Olive Garden! We ate a late supper and the food was very good. The Bread sticks however tasted like they were left under the warmer for to long. Our waitress was great and didn't hover over us.
