Seated immediately on a Friday night. Salad and bread sticks always great. Refills promptly brought to table. Entrees were served prompt and hot. Stuffed Chicken Marsala particularly good. Would have rated 5 but weren't offered dessert.

Food was very just OK. Salad seemed to be missing toppings, no red onion, dressing light and just not great . Breadsticks are good as long as you eat within the first minute. They tend to get hard if they sit more than 10 minutes. I ordered the Mushroom Rav and it comes with a nice Smoked Cheese sauce, used... More

Every time I've gone to an Olive Garden, the food has always been fresh and hot. But, aside from the great food, our waiter, Brandon, was absolutely the BEST

For our anniversary outing I thought a visit to Olive Garden would be a good change of pace and allow us a nice romantic Italian dinner. Well, the meals were very good, but the service was equally disappointing. Although they do not take reservations, they do allow 'call ahead seating' [as is the trend these days]. When I called ahead,... More

Food was good. Great salad and soup combos. Service was very slow. Servers seemed disoriented. Hostess station was slow also.

Being Canadian, the Olive Garden left the country in a hurry many years ago so when we noted that the Olive Garden was close to the hotel, it was a must stop. The salad is just as good as ever, and the menu had expanded since we were last at one. The server was very attentive. One meal came out... More

I took my family here to use a coupon and some gift cards...we haven't been there in years but enjoyed or visit. This location had really great service, the food was good and i wouldn't hesitate to be back.

I ordered take out because it was Super Bowl Sunday and I was staying in a hotel. The calamari was cold and tasteless. The salad was decent. Tilapia nd shrimp serving was very small. On the good side, my food was ready on time, The bar area was not as clean as it normally is.

We haven't eaten at this restaurant for several years. So we decided to go back and give it a try. The salad is always good, I have never been fond of their breadsticks. I ordered the chicken and shrimp carbonara, my husband ordered the tour of Italy. He didn't take the tour, unfortunately two of the pasta's were dried out... More
