“a really good Olive Garden”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Can't believe the other reviews. We just happened to notice it when we were about half way to our destination and always having good luck with Olive Garden, we swung in off the highway for lunch. Friendly to the Nth degree and we do marvel at how Olive Garden must train their staff as we've been in Olive Gardens from Vermont to Florida and never been disappointed. They greeted us as cheerful and friendly as you can get. Usually we get only three of those wonderful garlic bread sticks but this waiter brought five. All quickly consumed. Service was prompt and efficient with the waiter checking back to make sure we had enough water or might need anything. Feel the quality and pricing is worth it considering it's far superior to a mediocre sandwich at a fast food place for not much more money.

“.......Garlic Bread......Nom Nom Nom”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

I have been to several different Olive Garden locations. I don't recall disliking anything that I ordered. Everything led to a great dining experience. All I really want to say is: Olive Garden's garlic bread: Yum Yum Yum Yum Yummyyyyyy

“KEEP TRYING, Til you get it right.”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Stopped here for dinner while on a road trip. The specials are attractively priced and good value. Dessert offerings with the specials for dinner are limited. But good price. However, the chicken parm had to be returned to the kitchen because it was so overcooked it needed a saw to cut into. however, server and manager quickly replaced with a substitute. We come for the salad and the bread sticks; the food is average and not really Italian other than the fact that they put red or creamy sauces on things. Something is missing here, either staffing problems or management. Our, server however,graduating this month from RUTGERS U was excellent in all ways and in part made up for the otherwise uneventful dining experience.

“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.
