Love the fact I can eat all the soup I want and take my main course home. My favorite is the Pasta e Fagioli.

Food I good and whether you order with soup or salad, it's great. Must tell them no small jalapenos or whatever they are called in salad... really!! Weird, but true. If conscious of fat, just ask for rolls without butter and they will oblige.

I came here alone during a weekend night and the place was packed. But I was seated fairly quickly AND I got a booth. The server was super nice and attentive and the food came out quickly. It was well seasoned and was hot. I'll absolutely come back again. This place is great.

We had 23 people in our group and the service was amazing. We had over 5 separate tickets, kids were not sitting with parents, we were on a deadline to make it to a play, and everything went incredibly smoothly. We had 2 waitresses that worked great together, they were creative and brought the bills early so when we were... More

So it's been a while since I've eaten at an Olive Garden. And the experience at this restaurant didn't excite me at all. We showed up on. Thursday evening around 5:30ish. We were told it would be a 15-20 mi urge wait which we were fine with. When we were finally shown to our table, I noticed there were several... More

We always have a nice relaxing dinner at Olive Garden. I start with ...I believe it's called the Italian Margarita with the Amaretto on the side. The meal is always tasty, if not quite gourmet, it always meets expectations. The salad, the breadsticks...the waitstaff are always pleasant. We share a dessert, usually Tiramisu with coffee to cap it all off.... More

Huge menu, soups were hot and tasty. Efficient service. Good bar drinks, and better than I expected! Love the eggplant Parmesan so much, and there's always options for all kinds of special diets. The standby lasagne was good, as was the tiramisu. Wine selection needs desperate help, but it's the Olive garden...cheerful waiter, Ron, and fresh, tasty salad. Ron perfectly... More

We had fantastic meals. My husband had the shrimp alfredo, I had the lighter fare shrimp and pasta dish. The salad and bread sticks, OG's staple are always good. We also splurged for the chocolate cheesecake and licked the plate clean.

Anniversary dinner. 20 minute wait. It was 6 pm though. When seated, it was at a table that looked clean but had not been wiped down very well. The person seating us immediately asked if we would prefer booth seating, which we did. The service and food was awesome! The Black Tie cake was to die for! Will go back... More

We were on our way to our son and daughter in laws house and decided to eat before we got there so as not to inconvenience them. We looked it up on our cell phone and just popped in on a Friday evening. We had no problem with not having a reservation. We got seated right away and waited on... More
