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

The wife and I went there for lunch, what a great lunch and I just love their bread. Very nice Italian choses on the menu with soup or salad.

Recently ate there for their lunch specials. Tasty, and good price. I also glad they brought their Tour of Italy Specials back for dinner. This is the only time I enjoy going there, as I think the regular menu is over prices, for so much pasta. But I like the variety, on the special, and the price is not as... More

Well, I never got the stuffed version. So I cannot say how it changed. But I noticed a few years ago that the regular version changed so I asked about it. I was told that they use free-range chickens now. I can understand that but unfortunately the meat is tougher. It is not as "tender" or easy to chew now.... More
