“Worst restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

I waited 30 minutes for a buzzer and after I got the buzzer I had to wait 45 minutes for a table. The hostess, Miley, was the rudest person I've had to deal with when it comes to restaurant service. There were 30+ people waiting for tables and there where up to 8 tables free and when questioned the staff just gives you a blank look and ignores the question. Never again!

“Poor Service and OK Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Service was slow, breadsticks seemed cold / not fresh, and some of our requests were missed. I know Olive Garden is basically fast food with table service, but we still expected more.

“Dinner food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

I only went because my mother was with her boyfriend and he eats anything...I don't like dinners or this type of food. The place looks so cute that I thought that maybe the food quality would be ok. But nope...bad food!
