Stopped in for lunch and had a great meal. Breadsticks are always hot and flavorful. Soup selection was excellent, particularly loved the Chicken & Gnocchi - creamy and delicious!

Wine menu was great. You can explore different kind of italian cuisine. But prices were a bit high. You really should try the white soup(cant rememner the name :))

The never ending pasta bowl is back, so naturally we ordered that! As usual we had good food here, but we come for the salad and breadsticks. As Olive Gardens go, this one is one of the better ones. But be warned that also means you'll be waiting for a table for dinner. We were lucky snd only needed to... More

Always busy, food is good but nothing really special. Have never had a bad meal and they do offer a gluten free pasta that a family member requires due to an allergy

Our waitress was wonderful; she was friendly and attentive. The breadsticks which are usually delectable were hard, dry and overdone both times we got them. It was the first time we left them in the basket. The buy one, take one is a great value and our meals were tasty? Our dinner for two was made unpleasant by the computer... More

We went to dinner with our 3 young children. Each table has a little screen where kids could play games while they wait for their meals. We found it to be a pretty fantastic idea - with 3 kids we needed a little time to eat quietly. The food is delicious and the service was very good as well

The food is typical Olive Garden fare - gotta love those garlic breadsticks. What made the difference at this location was the customer service. My husband and I were lucky enough to get Jessina (probably spelling her name incorrectly). From the moment we sat down to when we left the restaurant she was a very attentive but not intrusive waitress.... More
