We've been to this Olive Garden in the past and the total dining experience has been great, with the exception of this last visit. The food was as good as in previous visits, however, the service was excruciatingly bad. We were waiting long stretches of time for each course, refills, and just in trying to locate our waitress that kept... More

We've all been to the OG.... they didn't disappoint me in their service or the flavors. They did a great job all the way around. The asiago garlic Alfredo over spaghetti was seriously rich with flavor and the grilled chicken went well with it. I can't give the waitress enough praise. I didn't catch her name but I couldn't help... More

It is a standard Olive Garden. The staff is friendly and helpful. Food meets the standards you would expect from any other Olive Garden.

This Sat. March 25, 2017. We had a $20.00 gift card so we decided to us it before it was time to pack up and head back to our home in Ontario. I had my usual all you can eat soup, salad and bread sticks, while my wife opted for the stuffed ravioli. Her selection included a take home entrée... More

We went here after a game of golf. Three couples. Their soup and salad is fantastic. You can order both or just one. I ordered the soup, all you can eat for under 10 dollars. Your choice of 4 different soups. My favourite is the Toscana. If you can get through more than two of these, you're better than me.... More

Nice to get as much as you can eat free salad and bread. Great service and food. Portions very large so we split two meals between three and still didn't manage to eat it all! Recommend chicken and shrimp carbonara.
