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

The food is always good. Salads are good. Main entrees are usually excellent. I've tried many, many things on the menu here and it's always good, sometimes VERY good! Service is generally adequate. As with other restaurants, luck of the draw determines who your server is. Here it seems service is very good most of the time.

I like this Olive Garden. I have never had bad service. The food is good and so are the people. I usually get it to go and they are wonderful in that area. This is also very affordable.

A great place for Italian food. It is clean with friendly servers. I love the unlimited salad and bread sticks. The chicken marsala, lasagna, and chicken parmesan are excellent.
