While I am never thrilled with Olive Garden's food, I found this meal to be disappointing at best. The meal started out with a salad that was more dressing than anything else, the small portion of Lasagna was mushy and overly sweet, and my wife's shrimp scampi was served over a minuscule amount of overcooked angel hair pasta.

The address given is wrong - Olive Garden has moved to 2711 Clark Butler Blvd, north of the old location and in the Butler North area. It is brand new, clean, very Italian. We had to wait about 20 minutes, however were offered half price drinks from the bar while we waited. The actual wait turned out to be 15... More

I was visiting my brother at the V.A. hospital and happened to be there on Veteran's Day. Even with the crown getting a free meal there was only a short wait and service was excellent. The meal was very good as always at Olive Gardens.

We have eaten hear on numerous trips through town. This visit was not quite up to standard. Our server was very good although she seemed a bit fearful of feedback when my wife requested oil and vinegar for the salad and was told there was no olive oil in the entire restaurant because they had a busy week. We asked... More

Normally you expect the standard food and service from a chain restarurant like OG. Not this time. Bad service. BAd attitude. Not clean. Regular food. I guess this restaurant is not well managed.
