We visited this Olive Garden location on a Saturday night and had already decided that if the wait was more than 20-25 minutes, we'd simply go elsewhere. However, when we spoke to the hostess, to our surprise we were quoted 15-20 minutes and in actuality it was less than five minutes before we were seated. Our service from "Matt" (I... More

We decided to wait at the bar, have a drink. The seats that were available had dirty plates and glasses in front of them. The bartender came over took away the plates and glasses, asked what we wanted to drink, put down menu's, silverware roll ups. She never wiped the bar area. She kept playing with her hair, never washed... More

I went here with my wife for a pre Valentine's Day lunch as I would be out of town. We took the servers suggestion for lunch. We got the Chianti Braised Beef and Ricotta Gnocchi. It was so good we ordered a second one to share. Our server was very very attentive to us and still serviced other tables. Of... More

The service and food was great. We did not have to wait long and we were there for lunch. The server was very nice and so was the hostess.

Food is very good, nothing to say about that. But our waitress asked a bit too many questions which normally would be nice. It started with a free taste of the white wine. It later showed that they charged 0,25$ for that sip. I ordered one glas and still had to pay for the free taste. This greedy action made... More

They charge kids $1.99 for "table games" so I figure just hold off on the tip when they try to rationalize making unauthorized and deceptive tricks on kids and ask the parents to foot the bill for unauthorized charges. Very sneaky and deceptive- it's not fair that my daughter felt bad for playing a game that deceptively charged- very sorry... More

I stopped with 9 others after completing a 4 hour shift with OCC. The food was great and service was okay. The manager stopped by to be certain everything was okay. The food was great!! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Food was ok but service was very slow. There were times that we had to wait for the server to come and bring food to us. We have been here many times but this time was not upto their standards.

We had lunch here. Olive Garden now offers lunch specials that are very reasonable in price. We ordered the spaghetti with salad. The food was fresh and the spaghetti was served hot. The service was outstanding. Great place for a quick lunch.
