You can't go wrong when opting for a night out to dinner at any Olive Garden, but this one is definitely tops for service, quality of food, presentation and location. Conveniently located off of exit 40 off of I26, this Olive Garden is on of the best I've visited in a while.

The gentleman who answered the phone took order and greeted me was great. The food was like any other olive garden very good. They did forget our bread-sticks though which is one of the staples of Olive Garden
