“Not like the other Olive Gardens :(”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Not like the other Olive Gardens :(
Dont go here expecting the same yummy Olive Garden food you have gotten at other locations, very disappointed, very cheap cuts of steak, make sure the knife they give you is sharp ! The lasagna starter was really good, really wished I left after eating that! O and the salad was limp, barely any dressing on it :(

“Soup and salad, yum!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Always crowded - food never disapoints, but the wait time is tiresome. Usually end up choosing to go elsewhere based on how long the line is.

“My wife have eaten here over 20 times...Great!”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

This is a great place. My wife and I love the soup & salad. It is always perfect. The bread sticks always hot and very good. We ate there on 5/5..and had great service from (Casey). The general mgr even came over and ask us how was our meal. Love this place.

“Not Good.”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

This restaurant is not good.

Even when it's not busy, you can expect a long wait because the staff does not appear to be trained. Try going when it's busy, and you'll learn the inspiration for the word "cluster f..."

The food tastes like a meal your mom might whip up in a hurry when she's feeling tired after a long day. Ragu sauce on store brand pasta.

The bread was hard, and our server was an angst-filled Liberty dropout. At least the salad was good.
