Even though it was around 1:30 there was still a line to be seated so we sat in the bar. We sat for some time and finally a manager came over to see if he could get us a drink. He brought our menus and took our order. We have been here many times for lunch and typically order the... More

My wife and I went to Olive Garden and enjoyed our lunch in their friendly and peaceful atmosphere. Service was quick and the food was great.

Took the whole family to eat lunch. Some of the family had the tour of Italy. They said it was very good. The portions were big enough that there was food left to take home. I service was great. All in all it was a great time

Slow night, half bar full 10 people running around and took pver 30 minutes to order, get silverware, and a beer at the bar. Manager said he will help and then was never seen again. Problem is they keep stopping to do sifferent things, just pure chaos....... The only beer on tap that wasn't empty was budlight.

Olive Garden is always quality. The food was excellent, the place was clean and the staff is always very nice and helpful. The options of dishes is just great and the servings very generous. Me, my wife and toddler daughter each order a dish (my Daughter from the kiddies menu) and we all enjoyed it a lot. Here is a... More

There was a cockroach crawling across the wall 2 feet from where I was sitting. All of the plates that were brought to the table had dried food on them. We asked for the plates to be replaced with clean plates... If those plates he had dried food on them. All of the eating utensils hit the same problem. Obviously... More

Every time we eat here we have a really good time. The food is always consistently good. The salad and soups and bread sticks are always good. I recommend.

The food and the service were OK, not great but not terrible. In comparison with the food and service in other Olive Gardens across... More

This is an average Olive Garden. Nothing special, nothing too bad. If you like Olive Garden then you will like this one. The service was nice, but not overly friendly, and a little slow. That is the main reason I don't give this location higher marks.
