Food is always good but m goodness why do people have to yell at each other and nothing absorbs the sound.

On our vacation, we ate dinner at this Olive Garden. We had the best service and friendly waitresses! Our order was taken promptly, we had drinks and food delivered in a timely manner. The food was delicious as usual! Great place to eat in Dubuque!

Everything at this Olive Garden was great from the time we walked into the restaurant until we walked out after lunch. Great service - could not have asked for better. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Seated promptly, attentive wait staff, food is consistently good quality at fair price. Convenient location near the Hapton Inn hotel.

With little machine on tajle, we really didn't need a server. She was pleasant enough, but poor timing of food. We'd barely started our salads and BAM out came the main course. We sent it back. Whole operation is more like fast food than sit down meal. We prefer Vinny's and Mario's ten times better for ambiance, price versus quality,... More

Tried the new Kitchen sink pot pie. Best thrown away which was what was done and which it richly deserved.

The Dubuque Olive Garden is a great atmosphere to visit for an Italian dining experience! The salad and breadsticks are the most raved about but I prefer the Zuppa soup and Ravioli Portobello entrée with sun dried tomato sauce. We had server Kylie and she was great! We never had to ask for anything and she always met our needs... More

Recently visited olive garden with my wife. The house salad and breadsticks are always good. Wife had the delicious minestrone soup. I had a generous portion of chicken marsalas and fried potatoes. I think a nice bed of pasta would make a better starch. Wife had a shrimp Primavera. She enjoyed the ample qty of shrimp. Service was fast and... More
