With a crowded restaurant for a Thursday night, it was nice to get a table almost immediately, the server took our order, so far so good, right? Then you are forgotten, your order takes forever, the server goes by simply ignoring you, no more salad, no more bread, just eat and leave. This is the first time I have to... More

One of my favorite Italian restaurants. Love the all you can eat breadsticks & salads. Great menu selection. Our favorite dessert is the Tiramisu. Great eating experience with your friends

Several times Olive Garden caught our attention each time we drove past. Finally, we went there for a late lunch and the food was absolutely divine!! The flavours were mouth-watering!! And to top it all off, the service was also exemplary!

The waitress was rude, the service was slow, wouldnt go back if the food was free. Try Nellos if you want authentic Italian with friendly servers.

Service was great, food was piping hot when it came. It seemed new, but had a really strange odor to it. Don't know if it was the food or the restaurant...smelled musty. Very off putting.

It was VERY BUSY. People were just swooshing everywhere and my opinion there wasn't enough help- it took over an hour to get my drink. There was no place to get yourself some thinking time. It was too crazy for me, being sick- I just wanted to chill not feel like I was on fire.

We've been to many Olive Gardens around the country and this one was as good as most of the others. The waitress was great, very knowledgeable of the menu. We love their endless salad, bread sticks and the dessert item, Zapoli's. Their spaghetti sauce is good especially the meat sauce. Nothing really to differentiate it from other Olive Gardens, but...

Sometimes when traveling in an area with which we are unfamiliar, we just want to eat at a chain we know. What we want is a pleasant dining experience with good food at reasonable prices. This Olive Garden fit the bill. We had a large bowl of salad followed by eggplant parmigiana with a side of spaghetti. It was a... More
