“Surprised.”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

We decided to use a gift card for Olive Garden and were pleasantly surprised. We were promptly seated, offered a sample of the house white wine and generally, well served by the waitstaff.
Soups and salads were tasty and abundant. Breadsticks were good and the entrees were excellent. You often wonder if a chain eatery will be providing quality while advertising price. Olive Garden made the grade and kept the price down as well. Pastas were cooked correctly, sausages were just spicy enough and the chicken was tender and flavorful.
Do youself a favor and be pleasantly surprised at what you can get for very little money at the Olive Garden.

“Good food, decent prices, plenty of variety”
Reviewed November 22, 2011

We go to this Olive Garden with out of town business colleagues. Everyone can find something to chose from.

I especially like their shrimp primavera.

The wait staff are friendly and not too aggressive.

It can get loud when the place is packed, but that just shows that they offer something that people enjoy.
