I love the all you can eat salad and Garlic bread. I have tried many chicken dishes and like them all. Never had a bad meal but at times service is not the greatest.I think it has to do with turn over of the waitstaff

Olive Garden has 2 star products : garlic bread and house salad.. the rest of the food is average ... even though my kids love the experience since the place is clean and you can feel you are in an Italian place...

Went here for my daughter's birthday (her choice) around 8pm on a week night and although we were seated right away, it took forever for our waiter to even acknowledge us. He just didn't seem to be enjoying his night. Food was average (as always) and my wife's pasta came out charred on top and had to be remade. Waiter... More

I have eaten at many Olive Gardens across the county, lunch and dinner, as a traveling consultant. They are cookie-cutter-same, which is OK as you already know the menu, and the food is generally consistently good - nothing spectacular, but reasonably priced. What sets this particular location apart is the excellent service of this local team This evening I had... More

We had dinner on a Thursday night at 5:30. We were seated immediately and the server was available quickly. The menu is varied and has lots to offer. I had one coupon, and the server gave us one more since there were 3 of us. That was appreciated. My only complaint was when the server was clearing our table, she... More

Olive Garden has some of my favorite food. This is normally my choice for a birthday meal. Last time, the manager even told me I could pick anything off the dessert menu and get it for free because it's my birthday! Olive Garden has great customer service, great food, and a great atmosphere.

We are always happy to enjoy a dinner at the Olive Garden. This time we were with our grandchildren and they loved it. The food and drinks were delicious. The service was great.
