I love this restaurant! I love their soup, salads, bread sticks, ravioli... I have seen roaches in there once or twice, but the new remodel looks great. Sometimes they only put a drop of dressing in the salad, but if you ask for more they'll bring you some. Love their Peach Tea even though it doesn't have peaches in it... More

This is the place to go to for a romantic dinner, for business meetings, for fun with colleagues, or with the family any day of the week. The food is delicious, bottomless salad, the soups are delicious, their plates are full of flavor and the waiting staff is friendly and very well mannered. I went with my girlfriend, my mother...

The meal was perfect, the choices of soups are good and mine was very flavorful. All the salad I could eat was wonderful. Maybe I was meant to be a "Rabbit"...I loved it. The bread sticks were just the right amount of carbs and starch for the daily feast. To drink..was strawberry lemonade served in a "Pilsner glass". The server... More

So you would think with the remodeling they would have improved but the waiters staff is just beyond horrible. Which me and some other people were thinking, they seem to ALWAYS be training. Which either means they have people constantly being fired and new hired that could explain the terrible service all the time or the are trying to help... More

After driving in, myself and other traveller came here for a late dinner. Though the food was decent, it was not over the top excellent. Service was okay however whenI think on it a bit, because it was later in the evening, got the sense folks wanted to shut down and leave.

Olive Garden was redone since our last visit and very attractive. The salad is always a draw for my husband and I when in the area. Had the special which was okay, but will probably go back to our standby at the regular menu.

We had been hear before(Jan 2015), and had a not so positive experience. This time was a pleasure, with the food, service, and decor being much better. We went for lunch, and there was a short wait required for the dining area, as the place was hopping. We opted for the bar area, and got in right away. The food... More

We were given a table in the bar area and the bartender was friendly and helpful. He even took our order for our dinner. The food came quit quick. The food was well cooked tender and the appearance was unique. Everyone was friendly and talkative. We enjoyed the overall appearance and noticed that the menu was not quite like the... More
