LOVE their fettuccine alfredo! LOVE their Toscana soup! Throw in those yummy breadsticks and you're in Italian heaven! I always go when they have their "Never Ending Pasta" special. The cheesecake is great also!

My husband and I stopped in here for lunch on a weekday. After I ordered and got my meal I couldn't really remember why I liked Olive Garden so much when I was younger. My spaghetti was just OK. As usual, the breadsticks and salad were delicious. As has happened so many other places, a germ-ridden screen was set on... More

We arrive about 6:15pm. We were seated fast and our server Carol was very good. Her section was crowded and she was extremely busy. Our drinks and food delivery was a little slow but given the situation is really wasn’t a problem. We had the Spicy Shrimp Scampi Fritta, which was okay; we would have liked it a little spicier....

We went for dinner. We were stuffed! The food was great and we had enough for two meals. We had the other half for lunch the next day. Our waitress Pamela was so great! You should ask for her table. Never let my drink get empty and was kind but not overwhelming during dinner. Great service! Thanks to Pamela!

Our family stopped at the Olive Garden last night for dinner and our server was Marlie. This young lady made our experience dining there and absolute delight. She was friendly and professional and checked on our table often. We never had to stop and look around wondering where our waitress was and she kept our drinks filled. This made my... More

Haven't been to an Olive Garden in a while but we have never been disappointed. At this location each table has a kiosk screen that you can order drinks, dessert or play games. A server still takes your order. You do have to pay your bill by swiping your credit card on the side of the kiosk. Something we had... More

I had a wonderful lunch there with my friend yesterday. It is such a wonderful setting. The meal we ordered was great. The amount of food was plentiful. The service was great. It is a very popular restaurant to go to. I would definitely recommend it to others. You won't be disappointed. The prices are very reasonable.

Thinking we just ordered the wrong foods. We had the appetizer that included calamari, cheese sticks & stuffed mushrooms. None of it was tasty. The calamari was rubbery & seasonings were completely flavorless. The mushrooms were nasty. Then we ordered some sort of shrimp scampi entree. We couldn't eat it. Next time we'll try something else.

Thank joyhope
