If you love chicken parmesan, this is the place to come. The chicken is tender, crispy, and very tasty. It comes with pasta with a yummy sauce, bread sticks, and a generous salad to die for. It hits the spot as an everyday meal. Good choice.

So OK, this isn't fine dining, but this place gets it right most of the time. Pace of service was good: seated promptly, drinks delivered quickly, adequate time to enjoy Appetizers prior to arrival of entrees. I can't get enough of their salad...its as good as it gets. I had eggplant Parmesan which was done very well and both of my companions enjoyed the salmon entree. I really like the Zuppa tuscani to the point of duplication st home. So this is one chain where the consistency of food and service always makes it a good choice. Fine dining; no, great place to eat; a absolutely.

If you've never had Olive Garden you'll enjoy the food. For the rest of us, you know what to expect as far as the food and it's good. But the service here is great. To start, ask for Elizabeth, she's quirky and fun and very attentive. Also, if there's a hurricane, this is the place to be. They are a hurricane proof structure and during those crazy days have fun specials, free games and all types of distractions to make you feel like the only storm is the fun inside. I thought this was a great idea when I heard of it. Try and enjoy

James is the best ever! Too bad he is not on duty every time we lunch/dinner here because we would love to be always served by him! :) He is very friendly and professional.
This time we got the Caprese Flatbread , then Fettuccine Alfredo with the House Salad. Their salad is always amazing .. not only at this location but whatever location around the U.S the Olive Garden's Salad is always the same meaning so fresh and amazing! The Fettuccine Alfredo at this location were perfectly cooked. It happened at other locations Fettuccine were not cooked well and were all stick together. Then for dessert we had Tiramisu and 2 cappuccinos. Wow everything was delicious.

I normally wouldn't review a chain restaurant, but we had a very enjoyable meal at this particular location which offers a large table in an alcove - ask for it if you have a group of 8 or 10. It provides a bit of privacy and quiet. Our server, Maggie, was excellent. Very pleasant and very efficient. The manager also stopped by (can't recall his name but he's from Pittsburgh). Very friendly, attentive service. Starters included calamari and bruschetta. Both very tasty. We were a group of 8 and all meals ranging from some of their newer dishes to traditional fare were all good.
