We stopped in for lunch and, since we had the soup/salad combination before, we decided to go with it again. We weren't disappointed. The bottomless salad had that traditional Olive Garden dressing with black olives, pepperocini, croutons, etc. My wife ordered the chicken/gnocchi soup which...More

Me and my mother ate here and the food was great! I ordered the stuffed chicken Marsala and she ordered the lasagna. The breadsticks/soup/salad were all great also. We had a waiter named Garrett who was so friendly and very helpful.

The minestrone soup was good. I enjoyed my eggplant parmigiana. The tiramisu was pretty good. The wine selection was so-so. The service was on the slow side, any slower and I would have gotten mad.

Can't beat the soup, salad and breadsticks when you are having lunch with your girl friends. Plus Friendly service and good price.

Visit was as usual at any Olive Garden. Service was good. A table for four does not accommodate four people with salad plates, bread plates, dinner plates and glasses. Seems a hassle. Decor getting dated and the ceiling is dirty

I've eaten in a lot of Olive Garden restaurants all over the place. I ordered my usual Five Cheese Baked Ziti. There was something lacking in it. The cheese just wasn't good and ruined the whole experience. I'm giving them 3 stars only because the...More

It's been a solid 14 years since I darkened the door of an Olive Garden, mainly because of the wife's poor experience years ago. This location opened about a year ago and always has a crowd. The menu is obviously available for anyone to peruse...More

Poor service! Very slow forgetful waiter. Had to ask twice for everything. Ran out of drinks, soup, and salad. Checked on us very little!
