The food was amazing and the service was the best. Didn't have to tell the staff it was my birthday and we still got treated like V. I. P. over all I had the best experience at Olive Garden today, thank you.

Our host and server were very friendly and talkative! My daughter was not a fan of OG, but I talked her into giving it a try and she really liked it. I told the server this and he gave her a free dessert, which she loved, who doesn't like free dessert? We shared the tour of Italy and it was... More

As always with Olive Garden it did not disappoint. Have to give a BIG thank you to whomever found my phone as I lost it while sitting outside on the bench while waiting to be seated. It was found by a great individual that turned it into the manager. When I called it from my wife's phone he answered, identified... More

My Olive Garden meals have been hit and miss. This particular location was kind of loud and crowded, tables packed in the room. Ravioli was not the usual, traditional; Marinara Sauce and breaksticks not great. Chicken entree very good. No major complaints but not sure I'd try again.

Service was excellent, the restaurant was clean. Everyone very friendly. I had recently fractured my right foot and everyone was very helpful getting in and out of the restaurant. The staff ran to open the doors for me, I didn't need to ask ahead of time. They were very cheerful. The food was great. There were 4 of us and... More

My friend and I were shocked with how little time we spent here! It was maybe an hour for an entire stay, from ordering our drinks to paying the bill. Our server Paige was fabulous! Very friendly, quick, and awesome about my food allergies. The portions are fairly large. I ordered angel hair pasta, took half of it back to... More

The staff there are very unprofessional they make you feel like you don't know what you're talking about. They don't seem to understand or care to cater to seniors with disabilities or diabetes as my dad was not feeling too well and the wait to be seated was extraordinary and I asked the waitress for some food or something because...

I decided to order a dinner instead of having the Toscana Soup and Salad that my wife loves. I ordered rigatoni pasta with meat sauce and Italian sausages for $13.48. The pasta and meat sauce was all right, but the sausages were on the tough rubbery side. My grandkids liked their kid's meals. One had the meatball sandwich with mashed... More

Just visited this restaurant a couple days ago. We had a wonderful server, who was so patient with my children. He even talked to my 1 year old and made her laugh. Our food came quickly, and tasted great. If we are ever in the area again, will definitely eat here again
