“Bountiful Food”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Plenty of delicious food with a great big salad and wonderful bread sticks. Wine is also good and the service is great.

“not too bad!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

This Olive Garden did have long lines, but of course it was Friday night. I didn't feel like waiting since line was out the door. i did come back on Monday night, and it was fairly crowded with families, but there was no line. We were seated right away, and our waitress was most attentive. The service was great, and of course the food was good. Our waitress stopped by very frequently to check on us, which is always very pleasant. Overall, I couldn't ask for more.

“Not Bad, Not Great Either.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We had tried to eat here on two other occaisions (both on weekends) and saw there were long waiting times. I refuse to wait for chain restaurants. This time we tried it on a Monday night and were seated immediately. Service is fairly slow and inattentive. It took about 15 minutes to bring the soup. Waitress rarely stopped by to see if we wanted anything. Main courses were mixed. My Venetian Apricot Chicken was very good and my wife had a shrimp dish that was very bland. The desserts were pretty good, but my espresso was cold. The price was reasonable, but I would never wait on line to eat here.
