I had a few sips of my tea and slipped off to the ladies room for a moment to wash my hands. When I returned they had cleared my table. I like to be fed before I am ushered out of a restaurant.

Brought our group in for a dinner while in Lubbock and everything went well. Food was good, staff was friendly, and service was good. If bringing a large group in I'd suggest calling ahead so they can prepare.

This is your run of the mill Olive Garden but with exceptional customer service. I frequently visit here anytime I'm in Lubbock.

My husband and I stopped in to have a quick bite to eat. The service was fast and friendly and the food was delicious. Everyone working stopped to say thanks for joining us today as we were leaving. I would highly recommend eating here!

Got there when they opened at 11:00. My husband and I sat there for 45 minutes, and never had a single person stop by our table. There was another couple with 2 older children who were not waited on either. We all got up and left. Never going back.

Always busy but they will seat you quickly. Food selection is good and well prepared. Staff is attentive and meets/exceeds your expectations. Chicken Paramasean was very good. The salad and bread sticks are always good as well.

New,menus, have done away with "lunch portions" forcing you to order their huge meals. The new sandwiches filled with carbs! Certainly a total disappointing visit. Will be the last for months, ahead until they come to their senses with a realistic menu!!!!

Being from Lubbock I remember when Olive Garden when it opened. I have over the years gone from eating here often to almost never. In fact I believe it's been 3 years since I last ate here. it has progressively declined. If you are interested in a good giant fresh salad to share at your table this is the place.... More

Not impressed with Olive Garden. Expensive for what you get unless you want to gorge yourself on free bread sticks and fair salad. Last time we were there they were out of Parmesan cheese. Food was cool and virtually tasteless. Hard to call this an Italian Restaurant

Thank Rascin
