We were a party of 10 and we had no trouble getting a table on a Friday night. I have a gluten intolerance so eating at an Italian restaurant can be very difficult. But everything was fine. I had the Olive Garden salad (no croutons) plus a very good top sirloin with G/F spices. I was disappointed they had no... More

We love their breadsticks, salad & Alfredo sauce. The atmosphere is nice. As is the staff. I won't say it's the best around, but it's good.

The staff was pleasant, the waiter was excellent, the food was filling and tasty. We got in and out quite quickly but it was a Tues. night. I have been on the weekends and had to wait.

My wife and I visit the Olive Garden once a week. Since reopening after the fire the place stays packed with people waiting in line. A few weeks ago when it felt like it was 150 degrees in the shade the receptionist (they know us well) asked if we'd like a booth in the bar. We don't have a problem... More

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
