We ate here for lunch today. Love their unlimited soup and salad, along with their bread sticks and fried mozzarella. Our waiter was really on the ball bringing us refills! We prefer going in mid afternoon for a quieter, less hectic atmosphere. We rarely get an entree, preferring our usual soup and salad. There are 4 different soups to choose... More

The food was very good as expected. We have never really gotten poor food at Olive Garden. Our waiter was attentive and careful to provide anything we requested. We will certainly return

My brother, his wife, my wife and I went here for dinner. The food here is typical for Olive Garden. Yet, it was done very well. The pasta was cooked well, al dente. The five cheese sauce was very good. Service was very good as well.

The food was good. Not Hugh portions, but a good size for lunch. We didn't realize the Ziosk at the table is $1.99 to play the games. Not a big amount, but I feel like the cost was hidden.

I eat at the Olive Garden at least once a month and always enjoy the food. Tried the new bread stick sandwiches on my last visit and was disappointed.

We've dined here several months ago and found the quality and presentation not consistent. We ordered shrimp scampi with asparagus, tomatoes on angel hair pasta to share. The unlimited ministrone soup was watery with chunks of tomatoes and very few beans, pasta or vegetables. The shrimp were overcooked with minute pieces of asparagus on overcooked pasta and very salty. The... More

Was impressed with the service and food. Parking lot was packed but there was no wait. Restaurant was crowded but our waitress was there as soon as we sat down. Jesse took great care of us, drink were always refilled immediately and she stopped at the table often to ensure we were OK. Food was very good and came out... More

Although Mother's Day is the busiest day of the year for restaurants, many restaurants are often short staffed. This usually results in long waits and frustrated customers. My kids took me to lunch for Mother's Day 2016 at Olive Garden. We were amazed at how short the wait was at 12:30 in the afternoon and the amount of staff they... More

We did not have to wait and were seated right away. Our waitress was friendly and knew product information. My order came out exactly as I had asked for and quick too. Everything was delicious. Will definitely be back again.
