“The best of what you'd expect from Olive Garden.”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

Nice, clean restaurant. The usual Olive Garden fare. When going for a weekday lunch, try to avoid the noon to 12:45 slot...very, very busy. Service is quite good though.

“Very good experience”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

We visited the Olive Garden in Appleton at around 4 pm on a Saturday and were surprised to find that it was already crowded. We enjoyed a glass of wine and after a short wait were seated. Ken was our waiter and he did a great job. Our food was very good and all in all we had a really good time.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

Food was the highlight here but I guess that's the point. Service was just average. Felt too pressured by their wine sales pitch. I was there to eat not buy a vaccum

“OK”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

My wife and I go a couple times a year for the soup and salad lunches. The Zuppa Toscana is very good.

I have been dissapointed by the dinners in the past, the wine list is weak but I don't like italian wines generally (why drink italian when they do it so well here in the states?)
