This Olive Garden served the most freshest salads I have ever had at an Olive Garden, unless things have improved at all of the Olive Gardens, and I loved the salads already, but this was outstanding! Ordered the Chicken Scampi and the serving was very generous as well as the fettichini (sp) alfredo. This was a Sunday night and the... More

Preatty much every single Olive Garden is the same, you know what to expect. What makes it special is the server that you get. This time qe got this amazing server (forgot to catch her name), but it was almos time for closing (past 10pm) and she was the nicest server ever! We were arriving from the airport, very exhausted...

This is a chain that if you get around at all and like Italian food you have probably eaten here. This one is as good as any other Olive Garden's I have been in. With this one being so close to another great Italian restaurant I don't know how they can compete.

I love the ambience and the food here! Service is great too; they really want you to enjoy a good meal. Being a vegetarian, I especially enjoyed their breadsticks and house salad. It's a great place to enjoy a lovely Italian meal.

Food was ok. We just went late at night. The server was good except for the arguing we heard while dining.

Generally, I do not eat at "chain" restaurants...preferring to support locally owned eateries. The Olive Garden provided a familiar menu with excellent service and quality food. I chose the Chicken and Gnocchi soup along with the endless salad bowl. My friend had the Chicken scampi....a large serving, served piping hot and oh so tasty. The soup, likewise, was served hot...

Brought soup which got cold waiting on bread. Which after waiting on it came out tough. We had pretty good service but, the kitchen needs to be replaced.

Listen folks I think Olive Garden has great to go service. Order online over the phone whatever. They pack your meal perfectly. You'll have plenty of breadsticks, soup or salad and your entrees are packed perfectly. The condiments are provide and silverware packets. This is a perfect place to get a full meal to go, especially when traveling on the... More

We arrived around 5:15 on a Wednesday evening. The place was not busy at all, yet, once our waitress took our drink order, it was 12 minutes later when we finally got them. My husband ordered a glass of the house wine with dinner which never came. The salad was minimal but tasted fine. We ate the 3 breadsticks with... More

Hi LuLuPic - Dining out should be relaxing but when the service and food aren't up to par, that becomes difficult. We're sorry for dropping the ball and not providing the experience you deserve.
