“Can eat here anytime”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Love Olive Garden; this one is always, always busy. I will eat in the bar area whenever the line gets too long. Service is always good and their combo deals make it affordable.

“Not for everyone, but tasty.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

If you like meat, and lots of it, look elsewhere. The name should be "Pasta Garden". Menu is full of Pasta Dishes, the sauces are full of chunks of veggies, and all the salad you can stand.

The service is fast and efficient. Prices are Middle of the road. But the menu is limited. If you like lots of vegetables, pasta, salad, and wine, this is your place in spades. Some of the entries do have meat in them, but not enough to satisfy a carnivore like myself. What was there was tasty, but not enough. A Steak is offered, but expensive and small.

The atmosphere is quiet, music is present, but not overwhelming, and staff friendly and attentive. Food was tasty, but something in the spices was not agreeable with my person, so it's not for everyone. Be careful if you have a sensitive system.

It's a great place for a romantic evening with your spouse or that special friend you have if you are not carnivores.

“They do treat you like family!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

After a VERY long day, I just wanted some spaghetti. Went to our local Olive Garden and was NOT disappointed. Love their salad and meat sauce over angel hair. Service was fantastic and luckily, when we got there, they weren't packed. Recommend Breanna B or Stephen to get excellent service.

“Disappointed today....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

Service was great, like the free taste of wine and the lasagna was great. Wife had the flat bread and not more than so-so. This was a lunch today, but menu looked pretty slim. We'll go back but will come up with something else for sure.
