“Propably Exceeded Expectations”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Being serious consumers of Italian cuisine our standards are pretty high, and so we were not expecting too much from a regional establishment. But we were pleasantly surprised, and while not totally 'authentic', the food was very good and service fine.

“Family Gathered”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Suggest this as a great location to gather for a family dinner. Serving out of town guests, management bent over backward to provide a great dining experience. Building a long table, the service was excellent. Orders correct and delivery superb. Eleven people with separate and distinct tastes were provided a wonderful meal. Waitresses were gracious, efficient, and flexible. Thanks for a grand evening and kind service. I hope the tips reflected the quality and quantity of food and service. We'll visit again the next time we are in town!

“Good service - predictable food”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

We knew we were eating in a chain restaurant when we went in, selecting Olive Garden for the soup and salad special and for a menu we knew. The food was predictable . . . decent, but nothing really special.

The service was excellent. The restaurant was not very busy, yet there were several servers working the area, and all were polite and helpful.

“Can Never Understand the Fuss.....”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

about chain restaurants like Olive Garden here in Chambersburg. You have three perfectly good local Italian places with scratch made food (Italian Village, Rosalies, Café D'Italia) and yet locals continue to queue up for shipped-in mediocre over-priced rubbish like that served up by OG. The place is o.k. for the soup and salad scarf up all you want lunch special although they could improve it by stepping across the road to Panera's for something approaching real bread (as real as it gets in Chambersburg anyway, except for the ACE breads currently being imported by Butcher Shoppe). And it is a pretty restaurant but you can't eat earth-toned fake terracotta walls and the food is generally what one goes to a restaurant for. Come on, people, break the OliveGardenRedLobster drek habit and patronize real restaurants......
