Although they have cut back on the unlimited salad and bread, you still get a good value for your dollar. Menu items are better than most local family Italian food places in the area and show some ideas of variety.

The best time to go is during lunch because they have some good specials and they're very budget friendly and they have lots of options. The staff is friendly and there's usually no wait. Dinner is just your typical Olive Garden...

Family friendly. Good service. I recommend ordering Alfredo sauce to dip your bread sticks in. It adds a nice touch to them. We had a table of eight. Food arrived shortly after we ordered. Great atmosphere. I would recommend this restaurant.

Good service, good food. It's been a while since I was there, but I remember the nice atmosphere and the communion with good friends.

I enjoy the regular Olive Garden Franchise anywhere I go but, even so, I do think that the environment needs to be looked at for the name sake. I enjoy the food don't get me wrong, I feel strongly for tasting the flavor without the smell of the kitchen aerating all over.

They once again have an all new menu. I had the flat bread lunch and it was very good. My husband had the Taste of italy and was happy with his meal too. They have a new machine on the table that they use to take your payment. I wasn't thrilled with having something like that on the table, I... More

my husband and I often eat lunch here...he loves their soups & I love their salad and pasta selections. We go for lunch because the prices for dinner are a little more than what we like to pay. Service has always been great. Very friendly staff and food comes out hot and fresh every time.

First off, I don't need to overhear the service staff's matrimonial intrigues as my take-out is readied. And staff on a break shouldn't smoke near the entry. The take-out service was fine -- arrived timely, fully explained by the polite deliverer. Half the meal was fine, the other was execrable. The house salad and the pasta fagioli were good --... More

I don't know what it is about this place... but it's ALWAYS busy. We've had excellent service here and the food is pretty good too. The house salad (bottomless) is tasty and refreshing (wish I could make it at home like this!).
