They accommodated 13 of us for dinner very quickly. I would have given a 5 star review but our service was a little slow. We had a hard time getting refills on bread and drinks. The food and cocktails were amazing. I ordered the chicken and shrimp carbonara and tiramisu. It's worth the trip.

Very clean, good service, good food. One adult, three teens and one child eating spaghetti and chicken parm and mostly drinking water our bill was over $100 with tip. Too expensive to enjoy more than a few times a year.

From the minute we entered I knew this was going to be good. We were greeted with a smile and quickly escorted to our table. The server, Trey E was quick to greet us, again with a smile. This visit occurred after a large event in this area but everyone was still on their game and that was great. The... More

Each of our group of three have food sensitivities and dislikes. The waiter put in substitutions and deletions for us. The waiter, Wagitci, showed a lot of patience with our questions and substitutions. He also was very good about checking on us, keeping out drinks refilled, and providing more salad and soup.

My family and I were on a small shopping trip and this was my daughters request for dinner. We were seated quickly but that was the only positive. We were unfamiliar with the small screens on the table and our waitress was quick to inform us that was how we needed to place our appetizer order. Her attitude was alarming.... More

Last evening I experienced a new low at the OG. The salad was fresh and the breadsticks were warm with their normal taste and texture of Merita loaf. My wife had the spaghetti with meat sauce and was satisfied with it. I had the chicken and shrimp carbonara. It came with a bit of chicken and four decent shrimp. The... More

Haven't been to an Olive Garden in forever because where we live they are horrible. Came here last night for dinner and was reminded how much we love Olive Garden. Stephanie was our waitress and she was EXCELLENT!! One of those who doesn't write anything down and with all the special requests, EVERYTHING came out correct. The food was excellent!

Had dinner at Olive Garden on June 15 after twelve hour trip. Very disappointing. Everything was oversalted, obviously warmed in a microwave, possibly 2 ounces of steak in my meal, sister's chicken marsala was overcooked. Ordered dessert, told it was frozen. I love Olive Garden...but never again in this one.

My family and I stopped by Saturday afternoon...the staff were courteous and professional from the hostess to the waitress. The salad was fresh. The bread sticks were soft and warm. The entrées came quickly and were tasty. The waitress checked on us often making sure everything was ok. This restaurant is just a quick jump off I-81 and surrounding by... More

I have been a loyal Olive Garden customer, up until this point. My loyalty hinged upon the consistency that I had previously experienced....my recent visit, at this particular location changed it all. My daughter & I had ordered the Steak Gorgonzola for lunch, which we had always shared. I informed the waiter we would be sharing this. He explained that... More
