“Middle of the road”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

The service was a bit slow, but the food was fine. Nothing exciting. The salad was a bit over dressed and the pasta cooked way past al dente, but they are consistent in their flavors and the quality is fine.

“Tasty salad.”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

The Olive Garden is a good place for fairly priced food. Nothing fancy but good. The salad and bread sticks are quite good.

“BLANDEST RESTAURANT FOOD EVER”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

The soup and salad combo has zero flavor. The garlic bread tastes like a plain hot dog bun. Truly bland and tasteless......but hey, for $7.50 + tip you can eat all you want. Free refills. The atmosphere is lovely. Staff are plentiful, but generally clueless.

This Olive Garden is one of the better ones I've been to. Food is good most of the staff do a great job and the wait has never been too long.

“Great waitress and manager”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Although there was a problem with the entree, the waitress "Brittany" and the manager were very apologetic and made it right, will difinitely visit again and ask for "Brittany". Great new wine special on the menu right now!!!!!
