There were 8 of us planning to have drinks and dinner. We used their "call ahead feature" to let them know we were on our way and the number in our party. This feature is promoted to let the venue know how many guests to expect and to begin prep for seating the group. We arrived and the wait area... More

There is not much one can say about the Olive Garden that hasn't already been said. For me, it's reasonably good food and value. I like the never ending salad that is standard. It's a nice salad with a dressing I like. Same for the soups. The food seems to me to be good value. I am never blown away... More

I ordered the endless salad and soup and I had 1 bowl of soup and I salad. My wife wanted the bread sticks and with the dip. When we received the bill they charged her 6.00 for a salad which she did not order. I've had issues with this location before. I will not return to this Olive Garden.

Our server wasn't very good - low energy. When we asked for utensiles, she brought us a couple of forks. When we asked for knives, she said they were being washed - we never received knives. Come on! This place is taking in money hand over fist. This stainless service is cheap. Buy enough to cover a busy night. The... More

I’ve dined at lots of Olive Garden restaurants, so I knew what to expect. This one is about average for the chain and average for its eatery class. We did get service a notch above the usual for a group of our size (6). The salad and soup were just fine. My chicken marsala was too salty (no surprise there).... More

I do not like olive garden. Food ver, very poor. Erratic quality. Best things to eat are the soups. Everything taste like the salt shaker was poured. Not worth the money. Go to an italian resturant, even a local pizza place for better quality and better tasting food.

We have been to this location several different times and giving them chances to do a better job. There always seems to be an issue when you go there. We have eaten at Olive Gardens all over. The breadsticks were heavily salted and all you could taste was salt, also the sandwich that my husband had the bread was covered... More

We had one of those coupons you get in your email, get a free app or dessert with two purchases of entrees. We'll when we arrived we were sat in a section that had this horrible/weird goofy/non-professional/inappropriate jokes, mannered waiter (had him in the past, no names mentioned but I'm sure if you get him you too will switch tables)...
