Seated promptly. Drinks were brought quickly. After order was taken, food arrived a little later than expected but place was busy at lunch time. Waiter checked with us a few times. Overall, a pleasant dining experience.

While the choice list is not huge it has enough variety to keep all ages happy at a reasonable price. Bi tried the Piadina for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed them.

As expected from any Darden restaurant , the food was edible at best. Over Seasoned out of a bag pasta and sauce, the one and only highlight of the meal were breadsticks and the mint at the end . Overpriced 1/2 an once drinks were way to syrupy to stomach . Hadn't been to an Olive Garden in 3 years... More

Always decent service, nice pricing, tasty food. I got the raviolo di portobello and my daughter got a pizza for the first time. She seemed to enjoy it. After tasting the pizza, I would recommend pasta if my son were here.

Always a long meal! Salad I could eat all day...bread sticks are the best....soup is out of this world.(Chicken Gnocchi!!!) Fried lasagna..Service is ok-a little on the slow side like they have too many tables for each waiter/waitress.

I have never received such terrible service at a restaurant before. I have worked in the service industry and I know how it should be run and that the server gets busy, but what I experienced is unacceptable. I went at 3 pm, it wasn't busy, and everything was wrong. We ordered the create your own pasta. One meal was... More

We got lucky and arrived at the right time. The food was great but I did have to ask for the lighter lunch menu. I have been to other Olive Gardens and never had to ask to see the lighter options. When we went to leave the waiting line was very long but I was happy to see they were... More

My daughter and I eat at the Olive Garden in Onalaska quite frequently because she loves the salad and breadsticks. I have yet to find anything on the menu that I absolutely love so typically I just get the chicken gnocchi soup with salad and breasticks as well. Every once in a while, I would build my own pasta dish... More

We purposely came later in the afternoon so we would avoid having to wait for a table, but we still had to wait which goes to show how busy this place is on the weekends. I was glad to see they brought back the stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer (it's been awhile since I've been here) but they were a... More
