“It's an Olive Garden”
Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

Food was good. The place was very busy so our service was a little slow, our waiter was good so he made up for that. I had the portobello ravioli which was delicious. Nothing overly special about this place. If you've ate at one olive garden you've ate at all of them.

The entrees at Olive Garden are nothing special and taste like something out of a can. The best thing about Olive Garden is their salad. We always ask for seconds on the salad.

Quiet lunch. Delious food. Not to costly-average. The wait was not long at all. Waiters were very pleasant.

“Very average”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Its all about volume, or at least thats what it feels like at Olive Garden. The menu has lots of great options, but its sure seems like the portions were quite skimpy. Its another place that seems more intent on getting people in and out as fast as they can so they can seat more and more. Go to a local restaurant that cares more about you as a customer and your experience than they do getting you through so they can turn the table quickly

“Good food”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Love the soup and salad options. The minestrone is wonderful, and with the bread sticks this is a wonderful lunchtime or dinner option.
