Had to wait a bit longer than usual but the food was great, friendly staff. Had egg plant Parmesan. Bread sticks and salad is the best here. Minestrone soup is also good.

I love The Olive Gardens. I terribly noticed the crowds of patrons in this particular location. The food was great and fresh to order. The salad and breadsticks was good too. I will plan to make reservations next time.

Out of all of the Olive Garden's I have been to, this one had the best food by far. The portions aren't as big as other locations but other than the food is pretty good. The waitress on the other hand was very slow and...More

The fare at this Olive Garden is like all the others but the wait staff is truly exceptional. We were having a celebratory meal with family when the baby became unhappy. The waitress quickly went to the kitchen and came back with mashed potatoes for...More
