“Salad, soup & breadsticks...good value...good meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Every time we've been to the Olive Garden we have had a great meal. The service is almost always good. The food is always very good. For lunch, you can't beat the salad, soup and breadstick all you can eat meal. Dinner for me is always the portabello ravioli. It comes in a great cream sauce. Be prepared to wear stretch pants, though, because it's hard to stop eating, even way past you have reached the full mark.

“Okay, we all know that Olive Gardens are all the same right?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

We happened into this Olive Garden location at an incredibly busy time and had a most enjoyable experience. The waiting crowd kept growing larger and we happened to find a spot at the bar. The waitstaff was understaffed due to an emergency at noon and yet we were taken care of promptly and thoughtfully. What's more, the food was outstanding. I've eaten at many an Olive Garden and this was the best by far. The bread was fresh and hot out of the oven and the soup and salad couldn't have been fresher. I highly recommend this establishment!

“Average Family Restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Olive Garden is a good place to go with a large group. They have several areas to accommodate different sized groups. The service is usually good. The food is pretty average. Not great but not awful either.
