“average food, over priced”
Reviewed July 28, 2008

the food is fairly good, but a little pricey. there are better places I'd rather go. especially since this place doesn't separate people with noisy kids from people that have no kids. they have 2 sections where they can separate families from people that would rather be a little more quiet, but don't do it. and when you ask to be separated, they act like you're asking them to kill themselves. guess I'm saying management isn't very cooperative.
if you're in Altoona, go to Lena's Cafe, or if you feel like driving to state college, go to home delivery pizza pub (of which they have the best Italian food in a 50 mile radius).

It's an olive garden, what more can you say? It's clean, the service is fast, the food is good. Be sure to go early on a Friday, Saturday or on Sunday for Lunch as wait time can run over 30 minutes.
