“UGH”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

This place is just so so at best. It is, quite honestly, a rotten Italian food chain. I tell people, if you must go, eat the food that is not Italian and you might like it (salad, soup, bread sticks, etc.). Their red sauce is road kill. I swear I think they open a jar of ragu, add those things they call meatballs, and serve it as some family secret sauce. UGH. Save your money.

“Average Olive Garden”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

We went here for lunch when we were working in the area. This Olive Garden is about the same as any other Olive Garden in the US. The food and service are predictable. Its a good place to grab lunch if you are working in the area, but if you are looking for fine upscale italian food, you will not find it here.

The potato crusted chicken was great as was the chocolate cake dessert.
The server was especially pleasant.

“was a good meal.”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

The food was good, the service was good and I was full when I left. The price was also reasonable. Go early because it really gets crowded on the weekends.

food is great, but service is poor. From host to server, they are rude.... we were still eating and he was already trying to take my plate out and offer desert... wait, I had not finished yet!
