I like Olive Garden. I like going when they have their "buy one, take one deal". They also let you taste the wine before you order it, which is great.

A very formula dining experience. Food is always the same, always good, not outstanding but good at an acceptable price. My only complaint is that the ontrey is always brought before the salad course is finished. By the time the salad is finished the food is getting cold.

My wife needs gluten-free options which can be challenging to find with Italian pasta. Olive Garden has a tasty gluten-free pasta so it has become our Italian restaurant of choice.

Family friendly. Seating is comfortable. Average service & food, but I like that I could easily pay with a credit card using the tablet on the table (no need to wait for the server to bring back the change or credit card slip).

I enjoyed the Chicken Parm which was excellent, my husband had the spaghetti and meatballs ( which were enormous and tasty meatballs). My son-in-law had the tour of Italy and brought home half because of the large portions, as did my daughter. The service was excellent, the salad was fresh and the breadsticks were to die for!!

Always a gd place to go for a gd meal. Great for families. While I wish they had older waiters that knew what they were doing. Kids are sloppy wait staff. Can't go wrong w pasta n salad! Bartenders are untrained, don't know how to make a mixed drinks so stick w wine! Gets 4 stars for food n ambiance.... More

I get to visit this location a few times a year and anytime I have been here the staff has impressed me. They are friendly, personable, and seem to enjoy there work. The food comes out fast, looks fresh and amazing and yet tastes so much better. Even the managers truly take pride in their people and meals they produce.... More
