“Standard fare”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

Good food with gluten free menu. Greeters were a bit clueless - others in our party had already arrived but the front desk was unaware, even though it was a slow day. Wait staff was efficient but not very friendly - got the sense the were impatient with us.

“Just ok, really.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

Every time i go to olive garden it is ok. The food is satisfactory but never worth the wait. The waiter is nice but the food takes too long. Some things are priced well, others not so much. Go there if you want to pay 10 bucks for okay food.

“Excellent Service at the bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

This location had a lot of people waiting outside in the 102 F temps. Unclear how long some of the had been there, but they were disgruntled. I was alone and went into the bar. Three chairs were available with some discard drinks. Julie greeted me finished her task behind the bar cleared and cleaned the bar top and offered service. The soup, salad, mussels and spaghetti were standard Olive Garden. Julie made the difference with her attention to detail, getting the right flatware, dishes, side dishes and food in good timing onto the counter. Her conversation was pleasant and she really worked at keeping up with the service drinks as well. Everyone at the bar had great service. She was an assist to the location during my visit. A compliment to the other bartender. I think she may have been on her break out near her car in the parking lot. She provided jump cables and a jump to a family stranded in the lot. The Service and the people at this location far exceeded any rating I could give to the food.
