It's a chain restaurant that does a very nice job. Clean and busy all the time.

“Quality U Can Count On”
Reviewed December 1, 2011

Since the salad, bread sticks & soup are so good I've never tried anything else here! When you want a solidly good fare, you can find it here.

“Excellent service, great food -- can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed November 8, 2010

My husband and I enjoyed dinner at the Olive Garden on a Friday evening. The restaurant was packed, but we had a minimal wait to be seated and experienced excellent service the entire evening! Our server was very prompt in taking our drink and food orders, and he ensured that our glasses were always full! Additionally, we never had to ask for more breadsticks, as we were provided with fresh ones straight from the oven several times! The food was fantastic, though we were unable to do dessert because we had such filling helpings of our main dish! Overall, it was a great experience, and we both are looking forward to our next visit.

“Saturday lunch”
Reviewed September 13, 2010

Had the chicken Marsella and split it with my Husband and there was enough food, but it is just ordinary in flavor. The salad was great and the bread sticks, but I think the food is too processed. It is made ahead and frozen and thawed and it is just not worthy of enthusiasm. It was also very expensive for a lunch menu over $16.00. I don't think it was worth. The wait staff was very good however and did all they could to provide what we needed.
