When everyone knows your menu and how your food is, what else can separate you from the rest? The staff! They made our visit very enjoyable not only by their suggestions but their friendly attitude.

Ate here on Friday evening. Fairly long wait for a table, around twenty minutes, then, when we were actually seated there were lots of tables empty, presumably due to insufficient waiting staff. However, once we were actually seated, service was prompt, efficient and friendly. Food arrived quickly and was delicious. I don't think I will ever get used to the gigantic food portions in America, the salad and bread alone ( for two) would have served 6-8 people in England. Dinner itself was huge! But so delicious. I would recommend smaller portions for children or people with a smaller appetite.

Ok, so a good friend of mine and I met there for dinner. Initially the server was polite and engaging. The food was typical Olive Garden, and it was enjoyable. No complaints on the food. The irritation was that the server continually walked up to the table and while my friend and I were talking in mid sentence, the server interrupted our discussion and jabbered at us. It was literally like she didn't care that we were talking. It got to be almost downright rude of her to do this. This happened at least 5 times. Service staff should walk up and at least let the customer finish their sentence. Otherwise they are rudely interrupting. The staff needs to be trained on how to present themselves at the table. People will see them and stop talking... This may sound petty, but it's actually rude that a server thinks their time is so important, that they must speak mid-sentence and interrupt the customer.

My family visited here on a late Sunday afternoon after a sporting event. About a 10 minute wait, which went by quickly. We were seated by a friendly hostess and told of all the specials. Our food arrived quickly and was delicious. Our service and meals were both wonderful and we'd definitely visit this location again.
