Don't expect gourmet food at this chain restaurant, but we've always had positive experiences here. The food is good and plentiful as we really like the unlimited salad. The stuffed mushrooms are a good appetizer while the calamari is only okay...too much breading. Our server was attentive and kept our water glasses full and brought bread and salad refills promptly.... More

I had lunch with a friend at the Fair Lakes Olive Garden three days ago. The breadsticks had nothing on them...no butter, no garlic salt...and initially my soup was only warm. A later refill was too hot to eat - quite a contrast.

I normally don't like to go to chain restaurant but as this Olive Garden had a pretty good rating on Trip Advisor, I decided to give them a shot. I used the ordering feature on their website and selected my dish and a pick up time. I got there a few minutes before my time but I was able to... More

Lots of choices but most dishes come with their salad bar which is always kept up with fresh lettuce, vegetables and great selections of sides and dressings.

I have eaten and ordered take out from this location many times. I'm never disappointed. This place is good for family's, couple night out, girls night, or to simply treat yourself. A good value for the price.

So i'm here visiting my sister, coming from New Jersey. Our server Christina D was great, she introduced herself and brought us some wine to try, unfortunately we had to deny since my sister was driving and I have a flight to get to shorty after lunch. She was very very attentive, we never once had to ask ourselves "where's... More

Took my young grandchildren. Good kids menu. Food is fine if you don't expect gourmet. Average Italian, but fine if you are in the mood for it.

Ordered the Port of Italy, stuffed mushrooms and Risotto bites and a salad. Everything was very good and I always go to Olive Garden when I want some great Italian food.

Not wanting to over eat I went here for their soup and salad combo. Olive Garden does it correctly with very chilled salad plates and enough salad in the bowl for three servings. The salad needs to be cut/chopped a bit more than the rough chop they gave it as most of the iceberg lettuce was too large for a... More
