We had a short wait which was expected on a Friday night. We had to wait some time though for a server to acknowledge us, and then she hurried by and said she'd be right with us. Even though she thanked us for our patience when she took our drink order, she was very rushed the entire meal, not paying... More

This place is a decent place to eat dinner or lunch, as long as you're not in a hurry. The food is always prepared well, but the service is always somewhat lacking. We love the chicken scampi, and the risotto bites are to die for!

One of the best Olive Gardens in the chain. Great Management and staff is awesome and good with large groups because we rarely have less than 15 adults and kids when we go in and they always get everything right!!

We had supper here and enjoyed it. The food was served in a timely manner, prepared as we ordered it. The waitress was attentive to our needs without being overbearing. We enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere.

We were greeted upon arrival and got a table immediately. The server was friendly and took our drinks first. We got an appetizer and it only came out a few minutes before the meal. The meal was tasty and you get a lot for the money. The dessert was tasty. We talked with the server and learned about the area.

The waitress was very friendly. Since we were from out of town she gave us directions to the closest Walmart. She also named a few restaurants she suggested we try. Service and food was fantastic.

We came here after the movies which was around 9:30pm. We didn't want to order a heavy meal at that hour, so we opted for the Soup and Salad for two. Our server, Nicholas, was pleasant and prompt. The soup and salad are what you'd expect from OG... consistently decent. However; while we were still eating, another server grabbed the... More

The wife and I had lunch there Friday and it was fairly good but not like it used to be. They have done away with the lunch menu and now they have installed table kiosk at each table to either order from or to pay from. The service is not the same either. The food is still good but the... More

The food was really good as well as the service. We went here for Dinner on Valentine's Day. The ONLY negative I had about this visit was with the Manager I guess and the way in which he was speaking to the hostesses at the front of the restaurant. Their conversation should have been done away from in front of... More
