While visiting the area we found a familiar restaurant we both enjoy, Olive Garden. We both like the lunch soup and salad as it not too much for mid day. We both had their salad bowl with their wonderful dressing and my wife had the...More

The food is very good at the Olive Garden but I feel the overall menu prices ranging from $15 to $25 are too expensive. The only item offered around $7.00 is a bowl of soup.

We picked up a quick take-out meal and will not go back to this restaurant again much to our disappointment. We like OG, but this specific store is lacking. Salad was wilted and soup was watered down.
