Went here with my wife a few weeks ago. The service was good but the meals were just "OK." Drinks were good and well made. Service was good. The appetizer (Pick 2) was just Ok-the calamari was over cooked. The dinners were OK and I just feel like something is missing. Not sure what that something is. I also hate... More

Ask for one ingredient not to be put in like I did and they tell you it was already put together and I then said to make a fresh one knowing it was prepared food already and they said they were to busy to make a fresh one

I recently went to this Olive Garden with my daughter for our favorite lunch special: Unlimited breadsticks, soup, and salad. We have always been satisfied with this special whenever we have it. For this special, you get a big bowl of salad - their garden salad, with their house dressing already on it. Their salad is filled with all sorts... More

I love the soup, salad and bread sticks for lunch and my Mom likes the Fettuccine Alfredo. We sit and talk and enjoy our meals in a pleasant atmosphere.

We had a very enjoyable lunch with family from out of town. The lunch offerings are very reasonably priced and delicious. Lunch and dessert was good and we were never rushed and felt in the way even though it was busy and we were there a long time. Refreshing drinks refilled thoughout the visit and staff was very helpful. I'm... More

One of our favorite national chain restaurants. The food is delicious with wonderful portions. In hot weather, we choose the fresh salad; in cold weather we always get the from scratch soup. Enjoyable for the entire family. So popular, it's best to avoid weekends later afternoon thru evenings.

I went here for dinner after work at say 7:30, the food came out so fast I didn't even finish my salad before my entire meal was on the table. It was clean & my server was friendly, only thing I would recommend is to time plates hitting the table better, so as to not rush customers.

Mom and I shared an eggplant parmigiana that was delicious. The salad was prepared to our liking which means no lettuce swimming in salad dressing. We were served the usual bread sticks warm from the oven. The meal came in a reasonable amount of time, divided on to two plates and served with a smile. My only complaint was waiting... More
