A friend of mine won a gift card to a Olive Garden, he knew, I like it. So one Saturday afternoon we went. The service was great. The waiter offered wine samples. The environment was pleasant to talk.

Silverware not clean. First set of silverware had crusty food from previous guests mouths still on it! Got 3 sets of replacement, all full of water spots and gunk. Food was acceptable as any other location. No butter served with bread, water with adult beverage, took forever to clear empty dishes and glasses from table. They kept apologizing for errors...

Was with 25 women friends from my 55+ community. Only had one server and he was working so hard with no help at all. Salads took a long time to deliver (we'd been at the restaurant 1:15 before we got our salads). Soups came after main dishes b/c they ran out of soup bowls. Still had lots of fun but... More

Food was great and so was service even though it was booming busy. Everyone totally enjoyed the dinner they chose and we'll be back!

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.

Thank rvtraveller_10
