“One of the better Olive Garden experiances.”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

Went in and seated right away. The staff was like most of your chain supper restaurants....they seemed to really enjoy their jobs and actually cared about serving you. Charleigh was our server and she was very attentive and was pleasant. Not really used to that at the area restaurants... I started off with the chicken and gnocci soup which was great. Then the beef gorganzolla which was perfect.....then we had a café mocha with some chocolate mouse cake....which was delicious as well.. THe food was good but the experience was much better.

“Good for a chain”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

We eat here around once a month. The food is nearly always good. If one uses a coupon or the specials, it is a good value as well. The service is generally good though sometimes needs some education about the menu..

“1st visit... not bad, not great”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Had wanted to try the chain, so went on the 9.99 deal of unlimited pasta. Came with salad and breadsticks. The kind of place where all the waiting staff are rushing around which doesn, t lend itself to a good experience. The salad and breadsticks were fine, the penne appeared as macaroni and the sausage pomo sauce seemed so-so really. An upmarket fastfood place to my mind.

“Quick & Healthy Foods”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

The Jackson Olive Garden staff always provides great service with a smile. Very accommodating about minor changes to menu items. My favorite is frequently the lighter fare of soup, salad, and breadsticks. I love the Minestrone. The cold and crispy salads and OG dressing are fantastic.
Personally would prefer a different type of bread, but OG's is ok.

“No waiting in line; just sat down an ate.”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

The place was like any other Olive Garden but no waiting. The staff was very friendly. Please from a small business owner; please tip. These people will run into some government regulations that they must pay.
