We ate at the Olive Garden the night before our vacation, as it has been in the past, the Manchester Olive Garden was clean and comfortable. The staff greeted us with a friendly smile and we were shown to a table; I asked if we could have a booth and the attendant smiled and brought us to a very nice... More

Been to this one a couple times for various occasions. Never had any issues! Always nice staff, clean tables, good food. Definitely a good Olive Garden.

I normally don't review certain chains, the olive garden being one of them. My thought is why rate them, they have no redeeming value what so ever. However, this was so bad I had to because of the terrible service. Salad and bread is terrible. Salad was drowned is dressing and the garlic bread had way to much to garlic... More

Food was great, service was excellent. We ate later in the evening. I was a little disappointed that there was a charge for the at table electronic games of which we weren't informed, but not a big deal.

Went out for a lunch with four other ladies. The Olive Garden menu has an excellent selection of lunch specials, combos, and dinners if one wishes a bigger portion. The lunch duos are reasonably priced under $10 and come with soup or salad. The unlimited salad and bread sticks are always tasty and welcome at our table. Jacob was our... More

Just like the Olive Gardens in our home area, this one offered a satisfying meal with great service. Our wait staff was friendly and prompt, and the manager even stopped by to check on us. Great meal spent with great friends.

Great place for families. I love their soup and salad options. House salad is simple but so fresh and crunchy, I can eat it non stop. Good menu with wide range price options for every wallet. They do take out.
