Typical design and decor. Seated promptly and server was attentive. Salad was crisp; rolls were fresh; and entree served timely. Had Gorgonzola steak alfredo. A nice dish.

Olive Garden to me, is the only place I can get my chicken Alfredo the way I like it, creamy and tasty. Nobody else makes it like they do. Oh, and don't forget the yummy salad and the amazing bread sticks!!! :-)

Great food. Come occasionally for lunch. I do enjoy the food. The reason for the lower rating is because of the temperature. The restaurant is always so cold that it makes the meal uncomfortable. They have been like this for years. I try to remember to bring a coat or sweater even in the middle of the summer. The new... More

As usual,had a very good meal at Olive Garden. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. Had the mule drink (can't remember exactly what it was called) and it was very tasty.

I tried the Northern Tour of Italy for lunch today. The food was great. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the chicken was juicy. I got the salad with my lunch. I had to take some of it home since I got so much. The waitress attentive and did an excellent job.

If you have ever eaten at an Olive Garden you probably know that in most cases they do a pretty good job. This particular restaurant is no exception. The food may not be authentic Italian food but it is good food nevertheless. My bartender/server was a great conversationalist and good server. She was well attentive and had a great personality....

Traveling through Jackson on our way to our destination we always stop at Olive Garden. This was our first lunch experience. The food as always was great. The breadstick sandwiches are perfection. Lots of bread sticks and salad too. The kids meals were more than adequate. Our server was very interested in our trip and gave us advise on what... More

A friend took me to Olive Garden in Jackson, Michigan last night. This chain offers some good menu choices but the food can be so different from location to location. We were seated promptly as the place was quiet and almost dead. Once at the table we waited for a server to appear and start the ball rolling, it took... More

Props to Olive Garden for staying current with trends, decor, and it's tasty menu. Although I get a bit overwhelmed by the number of menus (three!) we are given (aren't those things expensive to print?!), I pretty much have my standard favorites that I stick to. The Mediterranean flatbread, being one. Pumpkin squash ravioli being another. Anything primavera included. The... More

We put together an impromptu party of nine and chose Olive Garden. Seating us was no problem. The ordering was very thorough. I sampled about everything that was brought out and it was all "out of this world". The atmosphere was great. We had a splendid time and got a little loud at times, but didn't get kicked out.

Thank jmpres
