This used to be one of my favorite restaurants, but this visit was just okay. The prices have gone up and the shrimp scampi reminded me of a larger microwave dinner. Nothing special. The meatballs are very tender and tasty. Very generous with the salad portions.

Olive Garden used to be one of our favorites but it has slipped, especially in two areas. Several times in last few visits the food is served warm, not hot. Pasta had to be sent back and the soup was warm. This has happened far too often. The servers used to be consistent. At dinner wine was always offered; for... More

We eat at this Olive Garden on average once a month. It is consistently good. Servings are generous, everything has good flavor and the servers are always friendly and willing to please. Over the years, I do not remember ever having a meal that was less than great. The wait can sometimes go over fifteen minutes but there is normally... More

Server was excellent. Food was fast and hot and great for our table of 13. Specials were plentiful. The salmon was cooked just right and no fishy aftertaste. Just wish they could have blackened it as that's my favorite Will be back again.

My step-mother took me out for lunch today after shopping and the server we had was Jeanette. She was awesome. Very pleasant, energetic and attentive. It is rare to have service like we received today. The food was great as always. Jeanette showed us a picture of her adorable daughter and we appreciated her sharing it with us. She is... More

It is sometimes difficult to get a good meal at a chain restaurant. However, the one here in Springfield is definitely above average and it is very well run with quality food. We happen to like their egg plant Parmesan very much and order it every time. There never ending salad is always excellent. I believe that the managers at... More

National chain restaurants vary in service and food quality across the country. This is one of the best Olive Garden experiences we have had.

Most people are familiar with Olive Garden as is a chain throughout the country. Springfield's is clean, the service is fast and friendly. Prepare for a wait if you go during normal dining hours.

We had a wonderful dinner with friends. Our server was very attentive and we never wanted for nothing. Only thing he almost forgot was the after dinner chocolate mint. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. Would highly recommend this Olive Garden to couples,or groups.
