“A bit smelly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

You need to really like the raunchy smell of parmesan cheese to enjoy this restaurant--it is pervasive----The Red Lobster next door was better

No surprises, good customer service. Came at dinner time but I requested a lunch portion which the server served me and charge me accordingly.

“Perfect for the occasion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

To be upfront, I generally enjoy Olive Garden. However, this Olive Garden experience matched my need perfectly. It is located at an interchange on I-80, along with many other chain restaurants and hotels. After driving a long way we enjoyed great service, with a meal served at a snappy pace; good food; and a very relaxing atmosphere. I couldn't have been more pleased.

“Good Olive Garden, friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

The Olive Garden, like most chain restaurants, serves you reliably the same food wherever you go. So it's not the best Italian meal you will ever eat in your life, but this particular branch did every dish nicely, had warm and friendly service, and kept the bread rolls coming. We were happy to eat here while traveling and would recommend it. A plus is that the vegan in our party had a couple of options from which to choose.
