My family ordered our meals by telephone because the online program was not working properly. We were told to wait 20 minutes so they could prepare the order. After getting the order, we sat down at home to enjoy a great meal. But wait!!! Where is the salad that I ordered with my meal? Well, I guess they forgot to... More

Many feel olive garden isn't good because it's a chain. I find it just the opposite... It is always good because the dishes are made to exact specifications ... I always know what I'm getting and it is always just as good as the last time

Monday evening someone else wanted to dine here, waited to be seated, waited very long for reheated frozen food, one entree was totally wrong and we were overcharged. Ugh, never again. The only reason for the 2 is our server was an adorable young man who tried his best, apologized profusely like he owned the place as we observed most... More

This place never disappoints me. I love the soup, the bread sticks, the apps, and the entrée . Yes the pasta is very good. I will go back over and over again.

The hostess greeted us with a big smile upon our arrival. Safa was one of the best Olive Garden server we ever had. The food is always good and plentiful.

My husband and I frequently eat at Olive GArden; it's the old "stand by" for Italian food. Usually no wait at this location, and service is good. My husband and I decided to eat here on Monday 28DEC2015, since we were in the area. Boy, did we have a rude awakening. The Olvie Garden was particularly empty on this night;... More
