“Large group no problem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Our large group from the NC Senior Games was seated together and served in a timely and courteous manner with few mistakes. No one went home hungry.

“Mei R”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

This place is horrible and run by really bad and ineffective management. Went there with family and ordered a couple of dishes. The "Chicken Parmesan & roasted potatoes" were charred and burnt black. When I brought it to the notice of the Manager on duty, he offered me a coupon with $10 off for the next visit . He did not even offer to replace the dish while I sat there angry and really hungry. It was evident that he had no sense of customer satisfaction and the very concept of it seemed alien to him. To make matters worse his dealing with us included racial prejudice. They've lost our business for sure , its your turn to decide now.

“It's good, it's olive garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012 via mobile

If you've been to an olive garden you've been to them all. It's really good food, pretty good service, but this location is very popular and does get crowded easily on weekday and weekend nights.

“Exactly like every other Olive Garden”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

I went to Olive Garden with a large group. I don't normally like Chain Restaurants because they tend to be all the same. This one is indeed exactly what you would expect from an Olive Garden.
