The food was okay for chain restaurant food. The service was very poor. After arriving, it took a while for someone to take my order. The breadsticks never came so I had to ask. The finally arrived after I finished eating. Waiting for my check is taking forever. Not recommended.

We're three for lunch Oct. 17th. Benn seated right away, waited 7-8 minutes and then we were served very quickly and efficiently. Food was very good, finally some food not fried ! Salad and soup were good as well. Nice place.

On 11 Sep 2016 at 3:30 PM my wife and I stopped at the Fairlakes Olive Garden for a late lunch. We were promptly seated with menus and then TOTALLY ignored by the wait staff. Over the next 15 minutes four other tables were seated and waited on by the so-called wait staff. When I asked to speak to a... More

My family took me for my birthday so we had a large party (11 people). I know that this sometimes off service - but our service was particularly bad. Took 20 minutes for drink refills (yes, we timed it) and even then they brought refills for 9 of the 11 and we had to ask again for refills for the... More

I went to Olive Garden many years ago and didn't like it. A couple of years ago we decided to give it another try, and I was really blown away by how much their menu had improved! Many of their items are unique and delicious, and we love the endless salad and "create your own dishes" options. It's become one... More

Some of us had the all you can eat house salad with breadsticks and some of us had the all you can eat soups. The soups were fun-you could get a different soup each time you got a new bowl... More
