It's Olive Garden. A major chain. Food should be of a consistent quality, and wasn't bad- other than the fact that the cod I ordered was not cooked through and cold in the middle. Service was poor. The hostess that greeted us was rude. The table service was so slow that we were there for 3 hours. The waiter was... More

Nice place to dine with friends. Good choice of entrees. Love the Rosemary garlic chicken dish. Prices are reasonable. Server was friendly and attentive.

My only beef with this restaurant is the constant changing of their menus, it's like every 6 months they update their menu. I have my platter favorites and these are the ones that get taken off, mainly the seafood mixed entrees. Otherwise the food is top notch, fresh, full of flavor. I just wish they would stop the continuous ongoing... More

After a 20 minute wait, on a Sunday night, around 8 PM, we were seated at a table that had an annoying video screen at it. Then I realized that all the tables were so equipped. It was overly warm outside and inside. Our waitress came pretty quickly, and so did the food. It wasn't anything to either complain nor... More

Great food and service. Had chicken gnocchi soup and sausage stuffed rigatoni. Also tasted minestrone soup which was excellent. I'm not crazy about the breadsticks but that's just me. Apparently they are very popular. Prices are very reasonable too

We decided to eat at the OG after a long car drive and a bad experience at our hotel. Olive Garden has always been a reliable experience and meal. Tonight we only ordered the soup and salad with a couple of apps. The soups came to us lukewarm the server forgot the breadsticks and bread plates. Server was also not... More
