We decided this year because we were on a tighter budget to go to Olive Garden for lunch for our Anniversary instead of dinner. We sat in the bar and Lisa C. our waitress was great! She was waiting on 3 tables, but we never felt neglected. We got the soup, salad and breadsticks with a side of Fettucini Alfredo.... More

The food was okay, the service was good and they were really busy. Parking lot fills up fast and so does the restaurant so get there early or eat later in the day if you want to avoid the crowds.

Had we not loved the food at Olive Garden so much we may not have ate here. The reviews online were bad and our hotel manager would not recommend this restaurant. On that note I will say I'm glad we went. There was a 30 minute wait so we opted to eat in the bar area and Tiffony was our... More

Went here for lunch on a Saturday. Big let down!!! I normally love Olive Garden!! When we went to our booth the bench was broken and off the base. The waitress was in hurry??? We didn't get any plates for our breadsticks!! My chicken was burnt and the noodles horrible. Needless to say never again at this location!!!

My girlfriend and I went out last night for dinner last night, and after we finished with our appetizer she noticed a bug. Well it was a cock roach all the manager did was ask if he could sit us somewhere else like really. I love olive garden but that is the last time I eat there in Corpus Christi!!!!

The service at our table was awesome. We had all you can eat soup, salad and breadsticks. It was delicious. The only problem is that the server was rushing us so he could sit more diners down and earn more tips. Other than that, everything was good.

Our party of 5 went here for dinner. After a short wait, we were seated. Our server took the order and then we just sat and waited. First for the drinks and then for the food. The drinks took nearly 15 minutes to show up. The food was another 20 mins. Our server looked like she was stoned and could... More

We're Olive Garden FANS and have eaten at many of these franchises. This one on SPID however wasn't up to the quality of others. When we walked in the door it had a strange musty, almost moldy, odor. That smell continued throughout the restaurant and was especially strong in the back corner where we were seated. The food was just... More

We were greeted with three smiling faces as we walked in. The hostess was pleasurable. Our waiter great! Our salad an breadsticks came fast and were FRESH. Our entrees were excellent and plenty.

I´ve been eating in a lot of restaurants in my life, including in eastern Europe! But what my fiancée and I had experienced recently in the Olive Garden in Corpus Christi was by far the worst!! As soon as we entered the restaurant we noticed a weird smell. Took us a while to figure out it was a combination of... More
