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

I really enjoy going to Olive Garden. As much as I like pasta, I really like their minestrone soup and salad eat all you want. There are other soups but this just happens to be the kind I choose. They always have great bread sticks before the food comes out as well. they are very good. Right now you can... More

We came around 3:00 pm on Saturday and had a 20 minute wait. People who came latter had 30-35 minute wait. They said Sunday the wait could be 2 hours. Wow.

My soup was verg good tonight. But, while I ate my soup we spent 20 minutes waiting on the manager because my wife and daughter were served cold fettuccine and ziti. The server also argued with us that ziti was rigatoni. At an Italian restaurant! Also asked for more sauce and 28 minutes later still no sauce.

I remember when I was little it was my favorite restaurant, now it's in the top 5. I feel like they changed the way of their food around the 2000's. I loved their mac and cheese. Now it's average. Maybe I just need to try something else but I don't know. But their salad and bread sticks have never changed... More

Went during the workweek and surprised how busy it was. 5 of us went and ordered a variety of items which ranged from very good to excellent. 1 orders gluten free items only and the server made sure the kitchen prepared the order safely. Service was top notch despite being so busy.
