The OG is my favorite chain restaurant and the soup and salad is one of my favorite orders, with the Zuppa Toscana being my favorite, esp. with the free refills! Some of the dishes I've had there have been very good, others have been very disappointing. The eggplant parm has been great, but the lasagna was on par with Stouffers, just awful. I've had various raviolis there over the years that were very good. Mostly, my biggest complaint is that there's just too much salt in the food, but that's the case with all chain restaurants. The desserts have been okay, but nothing fabulous or to die for and usually, I'm too stuffed from dinner to order any, esp. if I get an appetizer. I like the cheesy spinach artichoke dip.

NWe were looking for a reliable well know restaraunt for my family of five while on vacation at the jersey shores. This place provided quick service. Was very excellent food. Service was excellent. If there was a ten rating I would provide it for this restaraunt and must note that the service was exceptionable. As a matter of fact in over 20 some years I have not received the top level service at any restaraunt or other that even comes close to what we received here. It's defiantly a place that is quick, reliable, great quality and the server had great awareness to our needs. Definately worth going and close to the hotel areas.

I’m not crazy about chain restaurants but I actually get cravings for Olive Garden food. The pasta fagioli and eggplant are the absolute best!!! It’s too bad that the serving size of the eggplant is so skimpy. I guess they make up for it with the generous portions of pasta and the unlimited bowls of soup and breadsticks.
The appetizers and desserts are somewhat commercial and highly overpriced but the restaurant does offer advertised specials (on occasion) with either the the dessert or appetizer included.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on the way home from Island Beach State Park. It was easy access from the main road from the shore (Rt. 37, I think). The atmosphere was nice. The waiter was prompt. The food was great! My husband raved about the spices on his food and even mentioned it again at dinner time (which is not normal). Everything was timely, even the arrival of the check -- and my husband was pleasantly surprised with the bill. We had a $25 gift card and that covered the price of the meal.
