One of our favorite places for lunch or dinner is Olive Garden in Longview, TX. When we visited last week, the service was fast and efficient. We all enjoyed the salad and bread sticks along with our selected entrees. Always an enjoyable place to dine, with the clean rest rooms and friendly service.

Soup and salad is great but the gluten free pasta is very good. The fried dough is the best dessert. Many other meals that are excellent.

I use to love this place now it's just a disappointment everyone I go. They have changed the preparation of items on the menu I have been getting for years and have gotten ridiculously stingy with the sauce.., particularly the chicken Marsala. I try to like it, I want to like it, but I just dont any more!! The Longview... More

So we all know that when you order an entree you get the salad and breadsticks free. Well if you share it and that person didn't order an entree you get charged for a second salad. But that second salad doesn't show up at your table they are charging you for the salad that comes free with the entree. Then... More

Having left Fort Worth for Longview I had expected the same quality food. Wrong. The service and ambiance was excellent. There were four of us, each having something different. The salad was chilled, fresh and good. I had salmon that I had ordered medium to medium rare. It arrived overdone and for the money it was not good. Mikey had... More

Me and my son went to the restaurant, they were nearly empty but still they took 15 to 20 minutes for our drinks to come out. The service is not good and the food is worst.

Not legit on the Italian dishes, but this is Texas where cattle roam and pasta is spaghetti o's. Stick with some of the pasta dishes and you will have a large filling plate with different toppings. Appetizers are not very inventive and sparse. Avoid them. Many enjoy the bread sticks. Staff is attentive and friendly. Place is crowded, not many... More
