My wife and I decided to have lunch at Olive Garden. We arrived to a generally emply restaurant. We were seated in a back room and waited approximately 15 minutes without seeing a waiter or waitress. We used the call button several times to no avail at which point we decided to give another restaurant out business.

This is the favorite restaurant my wife and I frequent. The food is almost always great, as is the service. This time, the service was not at their usual high standard. The waitress had to be asked multiple times to refill water, bread, salad, etc. and often forgot. She would stop by and tell us the food was coming, and... More

It was pretty obvious that things have changed at this Olive Garden....but NOT for the better. Had dinner in a bar area booth, this evening. One server on duty for the entire bar, which includes 4 large booths and several tables. ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? Oh, that's right, they want to "CUT BACK COSTS"...surely at the expense of their customers.... More

This Olive Garden is pretty much like all the others out there. Huge, good food, some variety in the menu and drinks. The thing I don't like about this particular restaurant is that they always seem short of staff. There could be people waiting for tables, but only a portion of the restaurant is seating. The servers seem stretched to... More

Stopped for yet another lunch at Olive Garden. Wife and I had the soup and salad as always. We asked for extras in the salad, and received them, no problem. Service and food were excellent.

Ordering online works well. Food was ready at the time specified. Chicken parmesan was good but there was very little sauce on the mound of pasta accompanying it. Ziti sauce was flavorful just not enough of it to cover the pasta.

My family and I always love Olive Garden and this one has consistently delivered good service and good food. Our only complaint is every time we have been here the restaurant has been so hot! Maybe it's the windows or the setting sun but it's overly warm. Other than that, great Olive Garden--we are always "warmly" greeted hehe and the... More

Our family loves Olive Garden and this one is great. Sometimes, busy, but always good food. We usually have a meal with a salad and bread-sticks and fill up enough on the salad, where we take home a portion of the meal for another day. Be advised they change menu items a lot so if you have a fav, make... More
