We came in at a quiet time 3:50 pm. Picked tables near bar so I wouldn't have to wait for hostess to seat us. Then hostess said tables are reserved but since it was slow we could sit there. That was a first for me since I always thought tables in bar area were a first come first served basis... More

Returned my steak 2 times and my daughters 3 times then finally gave up. They did give us the meal for free but we went there to eat and pay. Not to get a free meal that we hated. Obviously the cook had no idea how to cook a steak.

Visited every year for last 6 years. However it is now just another chain. Prepared sauces with meats added. Serving staff with little command of english. Poor local beer selection. Actually despite being on menu I was offered bus as local beer. Overpriced for what I got. Probably go elsewhere in future. They seemed to want our money and rush... More

I was kind of hesitant of wanting to go to an Olive Garden, because the ones by our house isn't all that great. But we decided to go anyways. Well, SURPRISE! The food and service was wonderful! Our server was not just professional, but he was personable as well. He and my father chatted about the Philippines and how a... More

There is always a line up here but we decided to brave it one night. Olive Garden serves reasonably priced food with great service.

We had not eaten all day, went to first restaurant we saw. Have never been to Olive Garden, as I prefer small, family owned restaurants. I was extremely surprised! Salad was fresh, breadsticks very good. Had tortellini with beef, and it was delicious. Would not hesitate to go to again in my state.

Always fab service, As your waiting on your food, you get a free salad and breadsticks, meals are a good size. I can never mamage a dessert always to full by then. Always look forward to my visit here, reasonable priced.
