“Waiting and waiting and waiting.................”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

We got to the restaurant and got seated right away but that's where it all went down hill we watched waitresses walking by us an no service for over a 1/2 hour seems no one wanted to serve us we placed our meals right away seeing that we had plenty of time to study menu we all opted for all you can eat pasta dishes so another 1/2 hour went finally breadsticks and pasta and salad all at once. We asked for refills on pasta and sodas that took over 45 mins to have that done .seems they spaced out our meals to the point where we would be hungry again (mocking of a situation that had us in disbelief) well they were prompt with check
P.s. meals were ok

“Patio seating was the best!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

This restaurant is what we all have come to expect from the Olive Garden, an average meal at a reasonable price. This location did not disappoint. The waitress was efficient and friendly and the entrees were the usual Olive Garden fare. The outside seating was probably the best feature of our visit, as it was a balmy night and perfect for dining al fresco.

“Average for a Olive Garden”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

The food was good, the place was packed, what you expect for a Olive Garden franchise on a Friday night. Our waitress was obviously fed up with her job. Not enough to spoil our evening, but enough to prevent it from being a pleasant relaxing evening,

“This Olive Garden needs there old cooks back because there food is horrible now!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

We have lived in Cape Cod for 7 years and up to about 2 years ago this was a great Restaurant in fact it was our favorite. The last 3 times we have ate here was a total disappointment and we will not be going back. The only we can figure out is that the cooks in the kitchen most have changed. The food is never cooked right the lasagna is frozen for sure. The servers here are most the times good and the management is good but the food is sometimes not even edible. This is for the management we ate at your olive garden yesterday night who ever your cooks are fire them and hire the old cooks back for what ever they want for pay or this Restaurant is doomed.

Use to be you'd be waiting for 45 minutes to get into this place and couldn't find a parking space now you get a parking spot up front and get right into be seated and that not a good thing you have lost favoritism with the locals just as Outback did and from this space your in now you will have a long road back especially if you don't change course soon. The word is spreading fast that Olive Garden food is no longer good.

“Outdoors Blist”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

We ate outdoors! The service was superb; the food great; and the view was stimulating. It was fantastic that the restaurant was within walking distance from our hotel which was an added plus.
