“good food, decent service, predictable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

This Olive Garden is in line with all other Olive Gardens for the most part. For whatever reason, the one in Pensacola has tastier food than this one, not sure why. Tortellini al forno at this location was missing the bacon for one thing. Overall still good, but Pensacola also samples out free wines at dinner and this one does not.

“So blah - processed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

Haven't been here in a very long time. Just got a soup and salad and how can those two items be so blah. Mainly an iceberg lettuce salad - no romaine or darker greens - and somewhat dry. The soup was really only slightly above a canned version. Even the breadsticks were dry without much flavor. Went with a group - otherwise would have let the manager know the mean was awful.

“Get the "All you Can Eat" Soup and Salad”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

If you want fresh, crisp salad and fabulous soup this is the place to go. My wife and I have eaten here a couple of dozen times and have never been disappointed. The Tuscano soup is REALLY good. Eat as much as you want; you'll go away happy!

“Pleasant end to a long day on the road”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

We stopped here for dinner at the end of a long day of driving. Since our stomachs were still on eastern time, we arrived rather early (ca. 5 pm) to an almost empty restaurant. Our server provided a free sample of their house blush wine and presented the daunting Olive Garden menu. I had a seasonal special -- fussili with chicken and fresh vegetables -- and my companion the rosemary chicken. Both were ample and very tasty. Service was attentive and not rushed. This is obviously a very new Olive Garden outlet and so the restaurant and grounds were well tended and tasteful. For a chair operation, Olive Garden does an excellent job.

For travelers, it is an easy exit from I-10 (Exit 38), a couple of blocks to the north and on the right. There are motels and gas stations at this exit and at the next (35).
