The salad and bread are the best. Food is very good and plenty to go around. Enough for my lunch the next day.

Pretty good but a few things off kilter! Food is good here, not great, but it is really pricey for what you get. $50 dollars for a dinner for two. No drinks for the price. Ads were misleading showing dinners for $10.99 but that is only for pasta and no meat. We opted to add two to go boxes for an extra $10 and they were worth it.

Not bad. My daughter goes to the school across the street so we frequently eat here. They do a great job and if something is wrong the manager will come and take care of the situation. Will definitely keep dining here when im in the Villages.

We went and had such a fun time as well as very enjoyable dinners. The waiter was very interactive and we laughed together at various comments we made together.

The food was plentiful. One meal enough for two people. I took food home. The salad was so large.

Definitely a good place to go for dinner.

I went to this Olive Garden on Thursday, Dec. 12, 2019 with a party of 16 (our card group) Christmas Party. Our reservations were for 4:30 PM. Arrived at 4:22 PM, and our table had not even been set up according to the hostess. The dinner was a complete disaster. There was about a 30 second power failure, and this was used as an excuse for everything that went wrong. One of the ladies asked for more sauce for her spaghetti. There was barely any sauce on her pasta. After 10 minutes, she had still not returned, so we flagged down another waitress and asked for additional sauce. By the time it arrived, the pasta was cold. Dinners were served to about four of us at a time. Other ladies had similar complaints about their meal. You won't believe this, but the last person at our table was not served her dinner until 7:00 PM. EXCUSE--power failure...One of the ladies got up and searched out the manager to find out what the delay was, only to be told "they were sorry about the delay." Needless to say, the 7:00 PM dinner was not paid for. The only thing taken off the bills for the entire table was for our soft drinks. We weren't even asked if we wanted refills. Waitresses were extremely slow and certainly not attentive. Our annual Christmas outing certainly turned into a disaster. We went back to our Rec. Center to play Christmas games and exchange gifts and barely had enough time to do so. We didn't get there until 7:40 PM, due to all of the restaurant delays. We were planning on arriving at approx. 6:00 PM. Suggestion: Find another restaurant for a large group, and stick to Olive Garden when you have only 1-4 people.
