My friend and I stopped by after long drive and very hungry. We were quickly given a table. As we walked to our table, a strong of smell of urine overwhelmed me. I kept walking, hoping it was kids with dirty diapers or something similar...unfortunately not the case. I waited for hostess to leave and asked my friend if it... More

I enjoy olive garden. I don't think its true Italian and has been Americanized heavily.. However, the food is tasty, I love the salad, and could eat the breadsticks all day. Generally good service as well.

I always enjoy going there. There can be a bit of the wait but it's Olive Garden, It is a very busy place. The food is good and the service is fine.

Ate at the Olive Garden Monday night with some friends. Our waiter (Patrick) was excellent and attentive to all of our needs. Everyone enjoyed the endless salad and their meals. The portions were large and the breadsticks fresh. We enjoyed the experience and will return to this location.

Went to the place to get the unlimited soup, salad and breadsticks. Was good. Sat at the bar. Jennifer was great. We ordered the chicken appetizer. Excellent. The soup was good and the salad was fine. The breadsticks were ok. Next time I'll go for a entrée. Clean and inviting. Will be back.

I usually like Olive Garden but I was not impressed with this particular one. The staff was nice and polite but the food wasn't great. I am usually not disappointed with the soups but this time I was. It was average tasting and I had to add seasoning.

This location is always fast, friendly and the food is always perfect. Even though this location stays busy it seems like they always get everyone seated quickly. We love so many of the items on the menu but some faves are the lasagna fritta, the steak Gorgonzola and the beef tips & tortellini! The drinks and desserts are pretty awesome... More
