I enjoyed a salmon dinner here and the waitstaff were quick to provide a menu and drink offer. The meal arrived fairly quickly.

We ate at OG before my sons hockey game and had some great Italian food but what made the trip was the manager Robert. He was so kind and made sure our visit was pleasant and food was perfect. He is awesome and deserves a raise!

We enjoyed a Sunday dinner with our family from Eaton Rapids. Our Granddaughter has suggested The Olive Garden. Soups and Salad are very good. All of our pasta entries were a great value. Even had left overs to take home. Our waitess was very accomadating. Over all a great dining experience.

Went here for a business lunch and it was perfect. Quick and very affordable. The portions were good size and the food was very good. You cannot go wrong with the soup and salad if you are really in a hurry.

This one is great. Always prompt, always busy, all the entrees are always spot on, great value, deserts are good, everything always seems to work wonderfully here. You really can't go wrong on their menu.....we especially like the shrimp alfredo and the chicken Marsala, but the steaks are good, the Tilapia and Salmon are good, and so on. This one... More

As always a great dinner, again. Everything was fresh and tasty. The soup was the perfect temperature, salad had the right amount of dressing. Our waitress was amazing. Will continue to eat there

We had a gift certificate for our anniversary which we celebrated on our anniversary. I personally do not care for Italian food but ordered spaghetti. It was good. The couple next to us was celebrating their anniversary too and got a free desert but my wife and I were not offered a free desert. I guess 49 years married were... More

Now, I remember why I haven't been there in a long time. Received a gift certificate to Olive Garden and the weather was too hot to cook. The bread sticks were ok now good like in years past. The salad was wilted and packed with a salty ingredient in their salad dressing. The food tasted like it was previously "puffed"... More

The GR Olive Garden is superior to the one in Kalamazoo in cleanliness and atmosphere and, I realized with this visit, also in the quality of its cuisine. Same dishes, just a much better result. Unfortunately it still has those black screens on every table, which look awful and extract the most money from you by pre-calculating your tip at... More

Thank you Bailie I for such wonderful and attentive service . I would have had 5 stars but Olive Garden no longer makes their pompodora sauce. That was a favorite as apricot chicken was. So instead of having a favorite dish but still wanting something more healthy than lasagna I tried the whole wheat linguine with the meat sauce. It... More
