My wife and I ordered the endless pasta bowl. My soup was luke warm, but hers was much warmer. Though it was not very busy, the pasta dishes arrived looking as if they had been held under the heat lamp for a while, though everything tasted good (but, some of the linguine at the edge of the plates was rather chewy).

The Olive Garden is Fort Walton Beach is like a little bit of sunshine on a cloudy day. Everyone there is genuinely happy that you walked thru the door, from the greeter at the front, to the bartender, servers and all you may come in contact with.
As a vegetarian I sometimes leave restaurants still feeling hungry but not at the Olive Garden! The minestrone soup and salad is great for lunch and I love the bruschetta as an appetizer rather than the complimentary bread sticks. There's always enough fresh basil or parsley on everything which adds that fresh flavor. All Olive Gardens are consistently very good yet the FWB Olive Garden does add that little bit extra with extraordinary customer service.

I find Olive Garden to be one of those places where you can always count on a good meal at a good price. Consistancy is key here. We frequent it often, and if EVER there is a hint of a problem, the manager comes over, is attentive, listens to your concern, and genuinely wants to make your dining experience a great experience. It is family friendly, a great variety of choices on the menu. If I could say anything that could use improvement, I'd ask the front end Matradie staff to engage the customers a bit while waiting. The wait is not long usually, but once they've given you your blinky gadget and add you to the waiting list, communication ceases till your blinky thingy goes off. If they are not too busy, they could engage you in a bit of conversation so you don't feel like you're sitting in a bull pen..

Olive Garden offered a "pasta special" so we tried it. Quite good, reasonably priced, and plenty. The meal was offered with a house salad and breads. The spinach and artichoke dip was tasty.
We enjoyed the meal and would recommend to others and probably go back when offered again. The restaurant was clean, the decor was Tuscan, and the atmosphere was quiet.
