Kinda miss the whole breadsticks thing. We visited, had great service. I liked the whole family style eating situation. The servers come out, bring these large salt and peppper and cheese graters to taste. Kinda overkill, but it works. The pasta is good.

I am not a lover of Italian food or any Olive Garden. I have been dragged to this restaurant half a dozen times with friends and co-workers. I found the place to be crowded and dirty looking and each time the service was very poor. this is a place I would not chose to take my wife.

Food was good. . .your typical Olive Garden experience. Busy, noisy restaurant. Works for a party of six on a Sunday nite.

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.

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
