A great place for families to gather for a wide variety of Italian food. The salads are great. They provide table games for the children to keep busy. Friendly staff.

Proportioned, pre-made, heat up and serve poor quality food. The service was good. Prices are fairly low to attract the budget conscious people.

Very crowded, 35 minute wait. Service good but food was average, although upon starting to take the order the server stopped, said she was choking and ran off. It was jarring. Just say "excuse me" like people with sense do. My grilled salmon was overcooked and the side of brocolli was stone cold and limp. For eighteen bucks they should... More

No matter what Italian dish you are craving, chances are you will find it here. The menu diversity is great and the food is good. Just be aware not to go there at 6-7pm and expect to be seated immediately. All of the restaurants in this area get really crowded around this time.

Tonight we went here for dinner last minute, myself, my husband and our two small children. When we arrived the 3 hostesses greeted us then when we asked for a booth with a high chair they said that they do not do that and were very rude about it, not a good start. Our server was nice enough to ask... More

Typical Olive Garden food - good but not great. We had a party of 10 and were seated within 5 minutes. And they did not add a large party mandatory tip to our checks.

Place was somewhat empty, yet they sat us all the way in the back near the restrooms. We changes tables and the staff seemed annoyed. Waitress took our orders and the wrong appetizers came out. Immediately after the appetizers our food came to the table. Not the best, bland food seemed to be missing the seasoned. Will not be back... More

Great service and the pasta dishes were very good. Took home a pasta dish for next day and it was very good also. No wait and no rush to leave so was able to visit in a quiet atmosphere.

My visit to this Olive Garden was very good. There was one thing that stopped me from giving it an 'Excellent' rating: the restrooms were not clean! My wife went to the restroom first, and she was not pleased when she returned. My visit to the restroom was similar to my wife's. There were large dark stains under the urinals,... More
