Can't go wrong with the soup and salad lunch or the never ending pasta bowl specials! Good spot for a working lunch, quick sevice if your on a tight lunch schedule. BUT! when we have a luncheon/meeting the service would disapear after about 40-45 minutes. You'd have to go track down the served to your soft drink refilled. It wasn't like we hogging a table the place was barely half filled. This wasn't the first time we had this problem at this particular OG.

Beautiful landscaping at the entrance, won a beautification award. Welcoming staff at the door, our server was the totally awesome Mary M. Friendly, efficient, knows her menu and is able to answer any questions. We never had to look for her, was available without hovering. Food was good ,had the pasta bowl with sausage and the new sausage sauce, good maybe a little bland.
One tip,don't fill up on the breadsticks, save room for dessert , order the zeppoles( italian donuts) 8 little gems dusted with powdered sugar and either chocolate or raspberry sauce for dipping.We will be back.

Olive Garden food and service is always above average. However, we were disappointed in the big salad bowl served us. The iceberg lettuce was not to what we expected-- too white and not enough green. The red wine was too flat and tasted cheap. Our soups were served hot and were the standard we expected at Olive Garden.
