Olive Garden is one of our favorite places to go and this location was as expected. It was very clean and comfortable. The lighting was great for a couples dinner. The food was fresh and the wait was very short to get it. The server was friendly and came around often for refills on bread and drinks.

We ate here last weekend while visiting in the area. They were overly crowded but several tables were leaving after finished eating. We were seated at a long booth which was crowded for seven people. The waitress seemed overwhelmed or something. We asked if we could have a smaller portion or childs portion of spaghetti since I cannot eat an... More

I have traveled the world over and have experienced delicious food in many countries but Italian dishes in my opinion are consistently the best. With that being said, I believe the Olive Garden chain has captured the "Best of Italy" in their kitchens. To start off, the endless salad and bread sticks is great and the entrees are traditional Italian... More

Like most people we go to chain restaurants on occasion and different locations and different times can often produce different levels of quality and service. The Olive Garden, in many locations we've been, has proved the exception. The local restaurant was rebuilt a few years ago and the new decor is definitely pleasing. The waitress was friendly and efficient and... More

One of my favorite chain restaurants! We recently came here for a birthday celebration of 12 people. The service was very good and the food was delicious. My favorite is the endless soup & salad, though I do enjoy the cheese ravioli if I want to splurge. My kids also love the table games...and the salad; we tend to fight... More

Olive Garden burned several years ago and the new facility was built from the ground up. The place is new, modern and VERY clean. The staff are friendly and quick to provide service. The menu has been updated and they offer a good variety of seasonal selections. You can't beat the never ending salad that comes with your meal. Love... More

I love this place, for a few dollars you can order the endless soup and salad. What is awesome is you don't have to stick with one soup, you can try them all.

We got soup and salad to go. It was good as usual and the restaurant was super fast with putting our order together. No complaints.
