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

Can't go wrong with the soup, salad and bread sticks! Always great service. Love the wait staff. This is a very well managed restaurant, one of the best as far as all the Olive Gardens I have visited.

For the second time I've let Olive Garden do the cooking for a party we were having and for the second time I've been thoroughly happy with the results. We fed 25 people for considerably less than in restaurant would have cost and the food was very good. Olive Garden covered all my needs--food, beverage, plates, utensils, cups, and ice.... More

I expected a longer wait, as we arrived at 7:45 on Friday, February 12th. A holiday weekend and the first weekend night of Valentine's weekend! We were seated in about 20 minutes and we were served very quickly! Our waiter was quick and thorough. We had our favorites (Tour of Italy and Fettuccini Alfredo) and all was hot and delicious!

Not many options. But a pretty good place to eat. One of the faster Olive Gardens I have eaten at. I usually like the Chicken parm or spaghetti.
