Nothing to write home about here. If you have been to an Olive Garden before, then this is about the same. Parking is convenient. Service is about average and there is nothing particularly special about the food. But hey, who doesn't love all you can eat salad and bread sticks?

Terrible service. We waited 10 minutes before a server came and took our order. Didn't bring water or napkins/silverware, then brought entrees (before drinks, silverware or appetizers) only to then pick them up and take them away saying that they weren't ours (even though it was our exact orders and it had been 20 minutes). Our appetizers then came (after they tried to give them to two other tables first) and still no silverware, bread, etc... The server got rude when I asked why nothing else had come. The salad came with dressing on it (which we had asked to have on the side) and the server was again annoyed when we asked to have it taken back. Terrible restaurant.

The signature olives garden green salad dressing was yamy. Pasta and fish were excellent . Did not like the vegtable soup, the shrimp was a bit spaciy but overall tastey.
The service was perfect.

Olive Garden for me is like the Fast Food quality of Italian Food. Nothing much to expect. Personally the salad and the bread sticks are not healthy for me. The calories are high. The pasta dishes are also typical. Just your average Italian Restaurant.

...heavy fattening italian dishes. Best deal is the unlimited soup, salad and bread stick lunch.
