“When did you ever miss eating at Olive Garden? Never...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014

You know the chain. But unlike some national chains, Olive garden STILL delivers great food, in a fair amount of time, at a fair price. I go for the salad but the entree to follow is always perfect.

“Yummy, convenient, great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

A business associate and I ate here during a recent trip. The food is the usual Olive Garden yummyness. What I like about this particular location is just that - the location. It is well managed and exceptionally clean. The service was excellent, also. I'll go there again.

“Consistent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

It's an Olive Garden. You don't expect authentic Italian fare that you'll find in Italy there. It's Americanized Italian food. I find that as long as I stick to what I know I'll like I do just fine there. I recommend the mixed grill, the braised beef and tortelloni, and the chicken marsala.

This location is newer and is not as darky and dingy as the old one. If you go to it I recommend requesting a room that is not in the back, large-group room. That room tends to get very noisy large groups in the middle and tables for two along the outside.

It's not fine dining, but it's something most of our friends can agree on and won't completely break the bank. Also, most meals are large enough to split with a friend or to take half home for lunch the next day.

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

My daughter and I came for a dinner one evening after a very long day of activities. There was a short wait for a Friday night. Service was quick and the food was delicious.

“Very reliable very enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

You can make it basic and simple or go all out. The salad is wonderful, tasty teas and lemonade available with free refills. They had a special offer allowing us to share an appetizer, get two entrees and a desert for a discounted price. Top notch food, relaxed setting, except for the crying baby at next table. 'Twasn't the fault of Olive Garden.
