Great service for a chain restaurant. Wonderful lunch specials at a decent price. Love their salad. Ease of paying for check through electronic device set at table. It even prints a receipt. No problems substituting from main menu. Terrific experience overall.

Well priced, clean and employees are very pleasant. Food is very well made and big. You will want to take a doggy bag home for later.

Haven't been to Olive Garden in years and based on this visit, no desire to go back. Server was pleasant and good. Food was tasteless. .. and those games on the table suppose to occupy kids. .. cost! Wait time was too long for tasteless food. Put us in the back room. .. guess cause grandkids were with us.

You get what you pay for at the Olive Garden. Service was unpleasant. Server seemed like we were a nuisance to her. Food was good, nothing to rave about.

Breadsticks served cold first, then warm when sent back - never hot - salad dry and tasteless - 3 out of 4 entrees served lukewarm, not hot ... overheaf lights so bright it was painful ... no ambiance ... like a diner or a truck stop ... not the usual experience one expects from Olive Garden ...

Went with a group and asked for individual family bills. We made it very clear who was on which bill when each person ordered, but waiter really messed up the bills (at one point, putting all the drinks on one bill) ... he came 3 times with our bills and each time there were things wrong ... the worst part...
