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.

I went here last week with family. I was not very impressed with the food, even for something basic like an Olive Garden. It was below average compared other Olive Garden locations. The Eggplant Parm was sliced too thick and was not fried as long as it should have been. The breadsticks were made very inconsistently, one batch was coated... More

My wife and I have been to Italy many times and enjoyed everything from street food to fine dining. Although one may not expect similar good tasting Italian food from an American chain, Olive Garden gets pretty close. While not exactly the same ambience of a street table on a Florence side street, it's food is tasty and Italian. And,... More

I've been here on a few different occasions during work trips. The hotel I stay at is pretty much in the same parking lot as the restaurant so it is absolutely perfect for the location and service. It's your typical OG with all the normal food and decor. Very happy every time I come here!

We came here after a long hiatus, due mostly to the fact that we live a half hour away, on my birthday to enjoy a good meal before hitting the stores. When we first arrived, we were seated immediately and the server arrived within minutes. She offered a complementary glass of a moscato wine, which was delicious. She also brought... More

I went out for a "ladies night out" with several friends this past week. It was a typical Olive Garden dinner; a couple of us had just soup, salad and breadsticks, and several of us ordered meals. Our server (I wish I had caught her name) was above and beyond in friendliness, helpfulness and service. Two of our party had... More
