Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we were not comfortable eating inside so we ordered food for pickup. The system in place was great and very easy. Our food was packaged perfectly and transported well. The quality and quantity was great...just like you'd expect if eating...in the restaurant. We were very impressed.More

Curbside Take-out was convenient but won't be trying it again at an Olive Garden. This is our 1st time trying Take-out from OG. I arrived earlier than the time specified at curbside, it came out a couple minutes after and our food was cold by...the time I got it to our hotel room 3 minutes away. My wife ordered Giant Chicken Parm which was overcooked and she could barely cut it with the plastic knife and it came with very little pasta and sauce (she didn't care to microwave it). Very disappointing for $18. My daughter ordered kids chicken fettuccini Alfredo but it had NO sauce - chicken was ok but literally NO Alfredo sauce. Salads could use extra dressing and croutons - they come with pre-packaged amounts so ask for extra. The only reason I'm giving this 2 stars is because of service and I ordered the "build your own pasta" with meat sauce and Italian sausage which was excellent after being microwaved. Fortunately, the portion was large enough to share with my daughter since she didn't care to eat hers. Overall friendly service at curbside, received a huge amount of Romano cheese on request.More

I always make a point of eating at Olive Garden when I'm in the States, we had them in Ontario, Canada years ago but they didn't last for some reason. I have never been disappointed, this location in Fort Walton was excellent.

I've eaten at several Olive Garden Restaurants but this one stands out as one of the better ones. While I have never had a bad visit to an Olive Garden, this one obviously has better management than others. The staff is always very very friendly...and courteous. If you have a question about a menu item they can answer it right away. This wasn't always the case here as a couple of years ago I had some so-so experiences here. I'm happy to say it seems they have fixed whatever the problems were.More

We took our neighbor out for her birthday to get her something special on her special day. Our server, Kelly, was a terrific person for the job, as she was very attentive for our table. I tipped based on this at 35% tip, she deserved...this. The foods were all very good, the only thing I saw wrong was having to ask for olives and peppers for salad. I mean olive is right there in your name.More

We had lunch at this Olive Garden over Christmas. Everything, the entrees, the soups, and the salad were delicious. Service was impeccable. This is a well run Olive Garden. We'll be back again.

This was hands down the best Olive Garden experience I have ever had. The food was fast and delicious. Our server Cindy was absolutely amazing. She was so nice to us and the little guys. I wish all servers were as friendly and efficient as...she was.More

Haven’t had Olive Garden in like 5+ years. The food was good. The server was very nice but everything was rushed. I literally was in and out in less than 30 mins. I was eating salad and my shrimp scampi came out. I wish we...could enjoy each course rather than being rushed. Just a suggestion. Otherwise the food was good.More
