Staff always ready to assist with "to-go" orders without making you feel like a burden. Food packaged in containers that don't open unexpectedly while traveling.

My wife had Shrimp Fresco. Two problems. A couple of the shrimp were clearly not cooked thoroughly. And, the dipping sauce was way too spicy hot. We were not charged for this meal. I had the Shrimp Scampi. It wasn't too bad, but most of the asparagus could not be eaten. They were like stiff/hard pieces of bamboo - not... More

We had a large group of 6 adults and 4 kids for lunch. Our servers, Holly and Autumn, were amazing. They made sure the kids were happy and the adults, too. They kept our drinks filled and the soup, salad and breadsticks flowing. Our meals were all wonderful, with no complaints from anyone. The fried risotto balls are great!

This is simply one of the best places we have ever eaten! My wife and I have traveled a fair amount and when you find a place that's hands down awesome, it's easy to talk about it. Not only is the food terrific but the service is lovely. Don't discuss where your going to eat another minute...go here and see... More

We arrived with 25 min wait time. That was fine, it was New Year's Day around 6 ish. We were seated after about 35 mins. We waited probably 10 mins for the waitress to come. She was very nice and took our order. We waited at least another 10 mins for our salad and bread sticks. It was good but... More

Good food....I always try something new. YUMMY Friendly staff and usually fast service. Might have to wait for a table on Sat/Sun highs cause its the weekend. Otherwise nothing bad to say.

I took the family here primarily because it had been so long since we had been. Now I know why... The food is good for the price, but the cleanliness of the floors, tables and silverware.... Not so much. The staff all seem to be waiting too many tables to be effective. Wrong/forgotten orders, no refills, billing mistakes and so... More

We no longer have a local Olive Garden. It was nice to be able to go with my family to reconnect with familiar tastes and atmosphere. We enjoyed the staff and meal, thoroughly!!!

We landed here right off the highway for a late supper before heading to our hotel. Big place, lots of tables. Food was good. Tables had tablets which had menus plus games for the kids to play while waiting for food to arrive. Did not notice there was a $1.99 charge to play the games until the bill arrived, however...

Typical Olive Garden, large portions and standard American Italian food. Typical chain type Italian eating place, maybe a bit better then the average however not authentic Italian. Was happy to see that it was pretty quite and we were seated right away. Have been here other times and had to wait 20mins +. Menu is large and you would be... More
