“Young staff, and it shows.”
Reviewed August 2, 2011

We were initially seated in a booth adjacent to a guy watching full-volume television on his smartphone. Staff didn't seem to see a problem. We did.

Asked to move tables. Manager came by to apologize, which was appreciated. Still, the new area of the restaurant was trashed, and the bussers were not laboring diligently. Restaurant furnishings, especially booth seats, are badly worn. Food was hot and normal quality.

“National chain has predictable fare...”
Reviewed March 2, 2008

Olive Garden is pretty much the same in any city in any state. Abilene's location is predictably "Olive Garden" but predictable unlimited Olive Garden bread sticks ain't bad.
