“seafood alfrado”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

this restaurant knows how to season food. the garlic bread sticks are always warm and fresh, salad crisp and tasty. the entrees are numerous to choose from. My favorite is seafood and I have never had a meal here that I did not think was very favorable and delicious.

“Quick Service for Tired Travelers”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

What can you say about OG food? Always good in every town and or city. We stopped in here at 1PM on a busy Sat. Had been driving 7 hours with 6 more to go. Place was packed so I had little hope we could get in and out to continue trip. Lady at desk said she could seat us in 10 minutes...then pulled it off in 4 minutes. Told our waitress we were in a hurry and she expedited and brought our check as we requested when our entrees were served. She checked on us several times after that to see all going well. I do not like to eat in a rush, but it was necessary and all staff went out of their way to accommodate us and get us on our way to our long journey home.
Thanks staff.

“warm welcoming and gracious”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

We went in close to closing time with three kids after a long day of driving from Mt. Rushmore. All three employees standing at the reception desk greeted us warmly and ensured us that there was plenty of time to have a meal. We we seated in an almost empty restaurant and given the best, most personable service we have had in a long time. Our waitress was Kate. At the end of our meal the manager came by and told us how happy she was that we had come in and that they had been able to serve us. The food was very good and consistent with what we expected from an Olive Garden, although in my experience all restaurants are not always equal. I ordered the eggplant par (not always a sure thing) but it was well-prepared, firm and not mushy so I will definitely try the same dish again. The kids had more than enough off the kid menus and we all left stuffed and satisfied. This great meal totally wiped away our grumpiness from a long day of family togetherness.

“Heartily disagree with any negative review”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

We visit this Olive Garden about once a month, and we have never been disappointed. We tend to go for early dinner, usually around 5 or 5:30 pm. It's always busy on the nights we go (Saturdays), but we have never had to wait very long for a table. The service has been excellent! Friendly and fast. We have visited other Olive Gardens (such as those in Des Moines and Coralville, Iowa), but this one is the best of the three. The food is consistently hot, delicious, and satisfying. It's very difficult not to eat too many of the breadsticks (especially with a little extra butter, which we ask for and is always brought to us with a smile). We are looking forward to our next visit. Hubby is eagerly anticipating a piping hot bowl of spaghetti with meat sauce...and I usually have either the Zuppa Toscana, Eggplant Parmesan, or Cheese Ravioli - yum! Don't pay any mind to the naysayers - this is a very decent place for a tasty meal and friendly service!

“Poor pasta”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

I will not recommend and judging by the fact they only had 12 reviews it looks like nobody else would recommend them either. Below average food coupled with below average service, I tend to favor the independent restaurants and try to avoid the chains
