We had eight people in our party today! It was a retirement get together! The service was spectacular! The plates did not sit after each course.

We started off with good drinks I had a banana strawberry frozen drink it was very yummy. I had the chicken and dumplings type soup, good not the best. Also the salad was nice. Two of us had lasuagna and we're very happy with it. Someone had the Salmon and said it was delightful. My spaghetti was okay not a... More

Let me just say I've never understood the draw of this chain. Let my husband and stepson talk me into going here, and since they were doing a big Mediterranean promo with lots of seafood, so I agreed. The mussels were overcooked and the sauce was little more than a can of chopped tomatoes with a little garlic. While the... More

Wait time was minimal for our party after church services. It was our sons 16th birthday and he chose OG. He ordered the taste of Italy and with the salad and bread sticks had no room left for dessert. Plenty of salad and bread sticks to go around and service was good. Everyone enjoyed their meal and would definitely recommend... More

We hadn't been to OG in some time, but we were intrigued by their recent Tastes of the Mediterranean offerings. They have a simple online waitlist with wait time (nice!) so we didn't have to wait long. My wife ordered the Tastes of the Mediterranean mussels and shrimp, and the mussels were a bit chewy. My Taste of Northern Italy... More

When traveling through here we were looking for a chain place to eat. This restaurant offers online ordering and to go pick up at their location. I found it very easy to order from their website and bring back to our local hotel. They were able to accommodate all of our request. For extra plates and silverware and croutons etc.... More

I have long gotten over the jokes of Olive Garden not being an authentic Italian restaurant and have long enjoyed this spot for what it is. The family enjoys sharing combination appetizers, bread sticks, the salad bowl... My love for pasta and my love staying trim are in a battle and we do not get here as often as I... More
