I have been to Olive Garden before in other cities, but this one has a good combination of servers which are very attentive and a Manager who does more than just come by and ask is everything ok. She actually takes the time to talk to you about your day. Food is OK and as expected the quality is good.... More

Atmosphere & food are amazing & the service we received by "Shane" were all the very best!!!! I could eat their salad & soup all day. Of course the Chocolate mini's just right to top off the rest.

Loved the server! High energy but not in your face. I would return again if only to experience her enthusiasm. Kids loved the food but fare is starting to taste a little bland.

Enjoyed a typical Olive Garden dinner with of course a lot of cheese. But our server Stephanie was a very cheerful and friendly waitress. The chain now has electronic games and ordering system at every table. I was not impressed with the $1.99 fee for the game.

Group of five really hungry from being on the road and one person never received their entire order and server did not notice. Was taken off the bill and one kids meal was free because of it so she tried to keep us happy. Slow and not exceeding our expectations in any way.
