Take out order. Called in ahead. Spaghetti and breadsticks were great. The potato soup with spinach and sausage was wonderful! Call in was easy and order was ready when we got there. They checked the order before we left with it.

Jordan wanted Olive Garden for her 14th bday, so that's where we went. Crowded for a Wednesday but not too long of a wait (25min). Abbie was our server and was soooo nice. She made great recommendations from the appetizers to the main course to dessert. My wine glass was dirty and she quickly got me a new one and... More

I've gone to this location for years. I was pleased to see that it has been remodeled since I'd been here last. (It has been quite awhile.) Unfortunately, before the hostess welcomed us, we were unpleasantly greeted by the stench of the bathrooms. I understand that they are right beside the door, but they didn't smell clean or fresh at... More

My wife had the salmon and I had the eggplant both were very favorful and the service was pretty good for a busy Saturday night. We got there about 7:30 and left about 8:45 very satisfied. A nice change from other places we have been lately.

We were escorted to our seats by the hostess, but it turns out that table wasn't available. So we wondered around the restaurant looking for another table, but each one was taken. We eventually made our way back to the front desk and after 2 minutes we were told there would be a wait. Two couples passed us through our... More

We were there for lunch yesterday (Memorial Day). The server was very nice and provided great service. Unfortunately he had a table of four young men who were being rude. I hope our tip made up for his bad experience with them.

Six of us dined here and had a fabulous meal! Three starters fed the six of us and teemed with the free salad and breadsticks, we were half full before the mains came. What a beautiful meal.

We had a gift card so we decided to go to the typical "chain" establishment, what could go wrong right?! HA!! Pulled up and the parking lot was crammed so we figured it must be pretty good, by the time we left I just figured people around here didn't know what good food and service was. Chain restaurants stick to... More
