As usual the Olive Garden delivered a great meal for each of us. It came out in a timely manner and the refills were great for our hungry crew! Too bad I was too full for desert! They looked great as well!

Can’t complain about the food. Always good service was good too. The restaurant it self is loud I think because of the metal ducts on the ceiling. It echoes really bad so I can’t visit and I get a headache every time
