Forgot to book for lunch for an elderly Aunt but found the reception staff very helpful and found us a nice table. The speciality is the salad and straws for starters and the four of us had the prawns pasta as a main course. The girls of course had puddings which looked delicious.

I am bewildered why people bother to go here. I have been a couple of time over the years. The pasta is nothing special. The best thing there is the bread and while it taste okay it is poor quality. If you are looking for something have the all you can eat soup and salad and save your money for... More

On the way home from Seattle, we were hungry after a long day at the hospital with my friend. We saw the Olive Garden and we all said YUM! We were seated right away and greeted promptly. I always enjoy the Olive Garden and the unlimited salad and breadsticks. We weren't disappointed and had a lot of left overs to... More

Took 4 children 5-11 to Olive Garden with my wife for dinner. Grandkids are great. We had a very nice dinner. Our waitress was attentive, despite it being a very busy friday night, and also very accomodating as out grandson has allergies to dairy, peanuts, and eggs. they broiled a chicken breast for him, with some grapes, and some bread...

We had to wait to get in to a table for about 15 minutes but it was definitely worth the wait. The food was excellent as always and our server kept us topped up with everything we needed. Excellent service.

We tried to-go service from Olive Garden for the first time at this particular location. You can pre-order online ahead for a specific pickup time, as well as pay online if you choose to do so. Because I have a Canadian address, I was unable to pay online, but it was very easy to pay with a card or cash... More

We had a taste for Italian food and the idea of salad and breadsticks sounded good to. We both had a pasta with meat sauce. It was good and one order is enough to share. Our server, Nycole was great as well.

We usually wait for the "specials" to go to the Olive Garden. The food is usually good (as long as you know what you are ordering) however I would consider the portions on the small to medium size. It makes it worth it when you get in on the special prices and fill up on the family style salad and... More

Nothing over the top but everything was great for the price. I would eat here again. We were a party of 8 without reservation but they sat us right away and split up the bill with ease.
