“Good place lunch with a friend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

First visit to this location, and was overall very satisfied. Service was quick, friendly, and efficient. Food was exactly as expected, and quite enjoyable.

“Nice enough but nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

Both had Chicken Caesar Salads - one chicken nicely done the other dry and over cooked. The Calamari was rather bland and tasteless but the batter was crisp and light. Very average but close to the hotel and apparently a popular place for families to eat.

“Not up to Olive Garden quality”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

I have been to many Olive Gardens. A visit to this one was disappointing. Having to wait 20 minutes -- I can understand that. But not having any parmesan cheese??? NO parmesan to put on our salad. No parmesan to put on our main courses. Unbelievable! Our wait person was pleasant but forgot to bring us refills on the bread sticks. This visit was not up to Olive Garden Quality.

“Perfect Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

First, I apologize for being so tardy in writing about this. Myself and several members of our family were in town for a funeral. After we left the funeral home on a Friday night, between those of us who traveled and local family members, we had about 18 people who wanted to eat together.

We decided to come to this Olive Garden location. I know restaurants often don't enjoy working with large parties, especially on a Friday night. We told the hostess we would understand if they had to break us up for seating. When we were escorted to our seats, they had taken the time and effort to put several tables together so we could all sit and eat together.

The meal was fantastic but most of us were fans of Olive Garden's food to start with. What impressed me (and everyone in the party) was the effort the servers made in refilling that many drinks, bringing more bread, clearing dishes and the like. Even as it began to get late, they made no attempt to rush us out of the restaurant. They allowed us to sit and talk with each other for some time.

In what was not a happy reunion due to the circumstances that brought us all together, the staff at Olive Garden did a tremendous job of making sure we were able to enjoy ourselves as much as possible. Even though it's been a few months ago, I just wanted to publicly acknowledge the staff of this restaurant for their hospitality and graciousness.

“Good service, okay food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

Typical Olive Garden food, nothing special about it. Our waiter was very good. He was observant and refilled our drinks as soon as they were near empty.
