We stopped in to the Olive Garden for a hot meal on a cold evening. We were not disappointed. The staff was friendly, the service was good and the food delicious.

They couldn't be bothered to seat us and give us menus, we had to help ourselves. They didn't come back to check to see if we needed drinks or anything so I ordered on the machine and they still didn't bring drinks until we were able to flag someone down. This was the worst service ever and they were so... More

Found the fare, lasagna classic, to be average. The salad service was very skimpy. Never got oil for our breadsticks.

We visited this Olive Garden yesterday to celebrate a family member's 85th birthday. Our waitress (Amanda H) made this a wonderful experience. She took extra care to make this a special luncheon for our family member. She brought additional hot bread and cold salad just as we were about to need additional and drinks were constantly filled without having to... More

Had a large group from work for a celebration dinner. Every time I have gone in an Olive Garden in the past, they always have the salad and breadsticks out. Not this place. Service was incredibly slow and rude. Will not eat here again.

My niece wanted Olive Garden for her birthday dinner and I thought great choice - who doesn't love Olive Garden... I use to be such a fan of the chain however lately the food is just not what it use to be. Starting with the salad - are they not made fresh anymore? Tonight I ordered angel hair pasta with... More

We used to look forward to going to Roanoke for shopping and being able to eat at Olive Garden. When our daughter moved to Blacksburg we had more reasons to stop at Olive Garden. But we have noticed that the last few times we stopped there the service and the food had degraded. The last time, after a trip south,... More

Stopped overnight in Roanoke while vacationing and had a late dinner. Ben was our server and was friendly, professional and attentive. Loved the free samples of wine along with our simple meal of flatbread and house salad. Next day after 3 hours on the road we stopped for gas and realized my husband had left his wallet at the restaurant.... More

Took and old friend there for dinner. We had appetizers and meals. The food was very good as always for Olive Garden. If you are familiar with and like Olive Garden then you will be pleased with this location.

We were traveling through from NY to Georgia and stayed at a local hotel. Went to several restaurants that had long waiting times we had no reservations and came upon Olive Garden and was offered a short wait time. It was worth every minute. Food, service and establishment was class A. This will be a regular stop from now on.... More
