What we like about this chain is that they have broken the place up into small Dining rooms. We had soup for one and linguini de mare. Great food. Their house white wine pared well with the meal. Fast service, hot food. Very friendly staff. Always a great experience.

My favorite selection from Olive Garden is the Soup, Salad, and Breadsticks. I tried the Minestrone and Pasta e Fagioli along with the Salad. Both soups were tasty and hot. The Salad was okay. We had a group of eight, and they tried to seat us at one of the round tables, which might hold 6 in a very tight... More

Great food, great service, nice atmosphere. Soup, salad, & breadsticks were kept refilled. Black tie mousse cheesecake was delicious. We've been here many times and love it! This olive garden has a nice high table seating area near the bar and a big screen TV (two more behind the bar). We happened to be here on Superbowl night and caught... More

The salad was horrible. Usually a treat the lettuce was old, wilted and discolored. Not up to Olive Garden standards!

Had lunch there recently and had enough food on my plate for two meals. As always, the food and service were excellent. Plus, who doesn't like unlimited salad and bread?

Food is always good, but service is sometimes slow. If you visit with a large group, expect to spend about 2 hours there.

I went here with my sister for lunch. Our server was really nice and did an excellent job. The food came out quickly. They kept refilling our drinks. We felt somewhat entrapped by the chocolate lasagna-we loved it!
