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.

Our waitress was great! Even though we didn't enjoy the food very much, our waitress joked and laughed with us the whole time. She even joked with the kids, they had a great time! When our waitress was busy, another waitress came over just to ask us if we needed refills or anything else. That was nice. I would recommend... More

Olive Garden is way overpriced, in my opinion. Hadn't eaten there in some time. But this time the food was great, not greasy, and Shaun, our server, was really good! Salmon portion was small.

We had a group of 12 and it was fantastic!! Our servicer was very tentative to all twelve of us. Including the three kids. The food was served quickly. All orders were correct and given to the right person. It was all delicious and not one person was disappointed.

Thank judy177
