It is sometimes difficult to get a good meal at a chain restaurant. However, the one here in Springfield is definitely above average and it is very well run with quality food. We happen to like their egg plant Parmesan very much and order it every time. There never ending salad is always excellent. I believe that the managers at... More

National chain restaurants vary in service and food quality across the country. This is one of the best Olive Garden experiences we have had.

Most people are familiar with Olive Garden as is a chain throughout the country. Springfield's is clean, the service is fast and friendly. Prepare for a wait if you go during normal dining hours.

We had a wonderful dinner with friends. Our server was very attentive and we never wanted for nothing. Only thing he almost forgot was the after dinner chocolate mint. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. Would highly recommend this Olive Garden to couples,or groups.

Food was some of the best we had eaten on our last trip. The service was outstanding. Our server was a blast and worked very hard make sure our orders were cared for and we were totally satisfied with our selection. Our server (young lady) made this dinning experience an enjoyable one.

Went here for dinner with my family while in Springfield on a short trip. Service was good and food was too. Don't visit this chain often but should. They give you so much food. Our server was excellent I wish I remember her name. Only disappointment was that I had a coupon and manager came over to verify it and... More
