“Food poisoning ... staff was friendly though.”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 via mobile

Ate the soup and got progressively more ill throughout day. Ended up in ER with food poisoning! The staff realized I was really sick ... manager was friendly and comped the meal (which went in garbage).

“Great everything!”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

My husband & I love Italian food and The Olive Garden is one of our favorites. On our last visit , this past Thursday, we not only had tasty food but amazing service! Our waitress went above & beyond what they usually do by offering a free taste of wine, checking on us for refills and just doing an outstanding job! That kind of service sure makes your meal so much more enjoyable & encourages happy customers to return often. We would highly reccomend this Olive Garden if you are in the area. We drive 75 miles just to eat there! Have a wonderful meal & trip. Life is good!

“Typical Chain Restaurant Fare”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

There was nothing wrong with the food, but after eating many times at independent Italian restaurants (Real Italian Restaurants) this just doesn't do the trick like those places do. Again, nothing wrong, but nothing to write home about. If you like huge portions, then this is your kind of place, but it was kind of bland. The lasagna tasted like it came out of a box. So....it's OK but nothing great.

“Average at best”
Reviewed 4 May 2013 via mobile

We've eaten here twice, most recently May 3rd. The food was unremarkable, the atmosphere made you feel like cattle bring herded through. It seemed like 'high-end' eating for the Wal-Mart crowd. The prices for the meals exceeded the quality of the food - pre-cooked, frozen, the heated. The only highlight was our server, who was cheerful, attentitive, and pleasant. We have no intentions of returning. There are far better options in town. I'd advise staying away from this one.

“new Olive Garden”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

The restaurant had not been open long when we stopped for eventing meal, so they were still learning. The food is what I would expect from an Olive Garden and the service was good and I think will improve to great.
