We loved the combination appetizer with calamari and clam stuffed mushrooms. Plentiful salad. Surprisingly varied wine list. Who knew one can have Brunello Montepulciano here? Friendly, helpful service.

Olive Garden is one of those chain restaurants that are set apart from the masses. Their food is very good, service very accommodating (usually lines to get in but they move quickly) and prices are fair and reasonable. I love pasta and they excel at offering a wide variety. The salad prior to the meal is as fresh as just... More

My husband and I evacuated from Coastal South Carolina during Hurricane Matthew. After we settled in at our hotel, we decided on a nice meal before returning to our room and 'battening down the hatches". We chose Olive Garden, as it is always a dependable, reliable choice. The food was very good and the waitstaff was courteous and efficient.

Food choices are great. Portions are very large plus the breadsticks are wonderful. Desserts are very creative. Plus there is always a glass of very fine wine to top things off.

Frankly, Olive Gardens sometimes leave me feeling ho-hum. I was reluctant to try this one on Radio Road, but did as DW and I were staying at a hotel in walking distance of the restaurant. We had an excellent server and the overall meal experience, from salad through dessert, was really, really nice. Made for a very pleasant outing. One... More

Visiting numerous Olive Gardens throughout the US, we stop here in Florence SC, which is our halfway stop on the way to Punta Gorda, FL from PA. There is always a wait at Olive Garden, but it is well worth it. Food quality is good, portions are just right and the salad is great. The kitchen will accommodate special requests... More

Food was average. But our server who really was busy with many other tables tried to attend to all our needs immediately and was extremely pleasant and polite! Restaurant was clean.

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
