“Over Priced Frozen food..”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

The food was just plain down a disappointment. We would of been better off going and buying frozen dinner and eating at home. It was tasteless and rubbery! We were very disappointed in the service as well. I have been to other Olive Gardens and have good experience but this one is not what it should be!!

“Late dinner? Go somewhere else!”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

We went in at around 9:30 in the evening on a weekend (they close at 11) and the entire staff seemed annoyed that we were there. It took at least 5 minutes of standing up front before someone offered to seat us. We were seated at a table with a dirty glass on the table and several of the nearby tables had not been cleaned. We ordered appetizers and didn't get the sauce for the calamari. The bread sticks were cold and they didn't offer cheese or pepper for the salad. We got our food and the chicken was burned black. We had just started on our food when the waitress brought a ticket over and asked if we could take care of the check right away (I had taken 1 bite). Overall it was a very bad experience... if the staff is done working at 10, close at 10.

“Not just another chain”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

We have eaten at quite a few Olive Gardens, this was by far the best.
First of all we had the pleasure of being served by possibly the best waitress we've had in a while, Lakota. She is friendly, curtious, knows her menu and served our meal perfectly. Oh, and by the way the food was great too. They have a new pasta that is a spicy shrimp dish. It is not billed as a Cajun but it does have the seasoning & heat to rival a good New Orleans plate. My 5 cheese ziti was exceptionally creamy and tasty. We also had a zucchini/mozzarella appetizer that breaded lightly and served with marinara sauce. We left with full bellys and with smiles on our faces. Thank you Olive Garden.

“Great Italian Food”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

We so enjoy the food here at Olive Garden. The food is good and the service is wonderful. It is a real value for the money, has great wine too. We like that the servers are willing to take special requests for changes in the menu items. The servers are attentive and friendly. It is a pleasure to have a meal here. Love that their menu changes and that they have new items often.

“Family tradition”
Reviewed 25 December 2012

It has become our family tradition to eat at the OG on Christmas Eve. Usually it's in Omaha, but we visited my son and his wife in Grand Junction. The food was decent, the service was good. About the same as Omaha.
