If you love to have your meals taste as if they came out of a plastic bag and were microwaved just for you, this is the place.

Who hasn't been to OG? It's the same as it ever was. OK prices and OK food. Lot's of folks just go in for the soup and salad and woof a stack of breadsticks which can vary in quality from batch to batch. The place is always packed! So much so that we quit going there all together. In other cities I've seen much nicer versions. It is really time to remodel the Merrillville location which is jam-packed with tables and noisy. If you want a quiet relaxing experience don't even think of dining at this one!

I love all their dishes, but my stomach is only so big so I get the soup and salad every time. I especially like their potato sausage soup... yummy! When I do venture onto something else, I enjoy the fettucini alfredo!

The service staff is great and the food is good. They are always busy but the wait time goes by faster than they say-this is a plus. Your soda refill is always there before you are halfway finished with the first one.

You know what to expect at Olive Garden. 1. Good italian food 2. A long wait to be seated 3. Fair price. Soups are great, salad is tasty and breadsticks are filling. You have to make sure not to fill up on these before entree which is usually very rich and delicious.
