Typical of my experience with Olive Garden, excellent food, great service and justifiable pricing. And I learned something this time about one of the soup offerings, and as a result, ordered it.

One of the best things about Olive Garden is its consistancy. The food is always the same, the Servers are trained the same way. If you love Olive Garden (and everyone does, even if it's a secret), you will love this one as well.

I usually do not review people. It can sometimes cause problems for that person. But I'm breaking from my own review don't's list and am going out on the edge. John Gray. It's Gray as in the Crayola brand spelling not the knock off. He's an original, he says - and that's why he points that out. But he is... More

We have been Olive Garden supporters through their struggles these past few years; however, I think they are self destructing. I hate these electronic ordering devices at the tables. I'll do that at a fast food place, but not at a sit-down. It took awhile to get a real server. I had the Garlic Rosemary Chicken and it was bland--tasteless.... More

Our son really loves this place. He has eaten in many cities and countries (including Italy ... Rome and Venice). However, he swears by Olive Garden. They also let him mix and match anything which he absolutely adores. This is his go to place. On his behalf this would be the best restaurant ever.

I know, Jay Leno always made fun of Olive Garden. But Olive Garden doesn't pretend to be a Fine Italian Restaurant. It just serves consistently good food of Italian style. I particularly like the Egg Plant Parmesan. The restaurants are divided into four serving areas plus a bar area with several booths. this makes it ideal for planned group luncheons.... More

The salad was standard fare and was consistently good. The bread was also consistent. The salmon was not a standard I would recommend. "OK" is the best description.

The wait staff at this Olive Garden was terrific! Very Attentive and quick to answer menu questions - even give advice. Our waitress didn't even have to write it all down, she had everything memorized. The "Lighter Fare" item on the menu look great - I did order one and was not disappointed - in fact pretty impressed. Might I... More
