Get there early and ask for a table in the front section away from the kitchen. Do not sit in the bar section as service sucks.All. of the meals I have had there recently have been very good for the money, though once in a while they get a bit stingy with the seasonings and garlic and I send it...

A year ago we ate here a lot when I was in Wilmington for a while. We have only eaten once this trip and I am sorry to say it was disappointing. My tilapia piccata was overdone and smelled strongly of fish which is usually a sign that the fish is not so fresh. My wife's chicken piccata was also... More

Having worked at an Olive Garden almost 30 years ago, I am particular about them for some reason. Generally, I have seen a decline in the overall food and service. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this Olive Garden. We arrived on a busy St. Patrick's Day evening. My octegenarian dad who used a rolling walker to ambulate and I... More

Typical Olive Garden. The food was good. Our server was very friendly. A bit of a wait to get our dinner after placing our order.

I loved a lot of the people who served me here but the menu was very meaty. There was not much fish and it was all rather hearty. True Italian cuisine is more dainty. I had spaghetti, meatballs and tomato sauce. Very generous portion of tomato sauce which was nice but there was way too much spaghetti for me. I... More

Olive Garden is trying hard to rebuild its customer base. Servers bend over backwards to make sure the salad which is already good is customized as you like it providing extra olives or extra peppers or omitting same if the customer desires. The portions are large without being grotesque with most diners taking 1/2 of their plates home. Those in... More

Our server was very helpful and attentive. The food was just OK. I had the chicken margherita which was rather bland. The portion of chicken was generous, it just lacked flavor. I treated myself to the mini dessert which was supposed to be tiramisu, but was more like a bowl of pudding. Disappointed.

Soup and salad for lunch was great! Giant salads - get as much as you want. Same for tasty salads and bread! Fill up and quick! Good!
