I went here a week ago with my wife. my waitress was a major problem. i could smell alcohol on her breath, she had a bad smell about her, and she treated us like she just wanted us to leave. I asked another waitress what her deal was, she began telling me about partying, new boyfriend and baby daddy issues.... More

We are visiting the OG near us in Florence, SC, because the staff is excellent now (for some reason) and the food is out-a-site. I love the classical Tour of Italy and my wife loves the Garlic Chicken on Spinach and what us Damn Yankees call Pasta Fasoll Soup. This is my fourth trip to OG in the past two... More

As you can see by my level, I've reviewed literally HUNDREDS of restaurants and my reviews are generally very positive. The Restaurant was not that busy...staff everywhere. The manager was sitting right at the bar next to our table and never spoke to a guest until they were leaving and then gave her pat "thanks for coming" speech. Service was... More

We always enjoy meals at Olive Garden. Love the salads, and most of their meals. I was not impressed by the bruschetta at this Olive Garden, though - it was sweeter than usual.

We stopped here for dinner on our recent road trip and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and service. Carol was our waitress and she was extremely friendly and helpful with our custom order for my toddler who has a milk allergy. (Most items have some kind of cheese/butter, but they made him a pasta with olive oil/garlic and grilled... More

I went there twice and both times I had really great service with a friendly and attentive server. The food was really good and I felt that for a chain it actually was made to order the way I liked it. The portions were very large (too much for me) and I've always loved their salad.
