“The wait staff has horrible attitudes.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2012

We have never eaten at this location and gotten good service. The wait staff is always bordering on rude and the service is horrible. The last time we visited, we had the all you can eat lunch with soup, salad, and breadsticks. It took forever to refill our salads and soups and the soup bowls kept getting smaller. That is ridiculous. If you don't want to serve all you can eat soup and salad, then don't advertise it.

The food itself was good but it was such an ordeal to get more of it, that it really put a dampening on our satisfaction with the experience.

“Like Every Other Olive Garden”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2012

The food here is good, heavy on the cheese. It's like any other Olive Garden you've been to before.

“OK not the best OG”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2012

The OG is one of our fav. places to eat...this one was not as nice as some we've been to...one plate had a hair in it (ok thought that it was from person w/plate) as pasta was stirred not so another hair mixed in pasta...plate sent back....pasta for others on hard side (not fully cooked) and not enough sauce (had to ask for more)...salad good...staff not very attentive. Can't say we'll be back to this OG again when in Asheville NC.

Typical Olive Garden food and atmosphere. Please beware of waiter Justin. Attempted to keep an extra $20 for himself. Please count your money!
