I'm not typically a fan of Olive Garden, but this is where my daughter wanted to go. We had an excellent server who was very attentive - but not overly attentive. She was super friendly and knowledgeable. She made the experience excellent. I had the seafood stuffed manicotti and was pleasantly surprised at the value for the money and the... More

They have two options, one of which is penne pasta with meat sauce. It is very good with just the right amount of flavor and spice. The meat they use is not grisly which is typical of other Italian restaurants. Staff go out of their way to please.

My boyfriend and I went for a dinner date to Olive Garden on a Friday night in January. I had mushroom ravioli which was so delicious. We also tried the fried risotto appetizer, and it was very good, as well. However, I do not like the fact that Olive Garden forces technology in our faces at the dinner table. I'm... More

This Olive Garden has never disappointed. My last experience was the best. The wait staff was very attentive. She even suggested some items when my wife and I were stumped on what we wanted. The food is always prepared correctly and very enjoyable. I wish I had enough room after my meal to have tried the Andes Cheesecake.

It is once again the time for "The never-ending Pasta Bowl"-- always a good deal. But as I've said before; the best thing at The Olive Garden to me is the Zuppa Tuscano Soup. I ordered the promotion== asking for Angel Hair with Meat sauce and meat balls. It comes with either soup or salad-- so I ordered the Zuppa!... More

The food here is probably the best Italian food in the area. If you like good food in nice surroundings with plenty of pasta and garlic then this is the place for you.

The food was excellent, and the waitress was very friendly and kept up with our needs. Love that we can pay right from the table with just a swipe of our card without ha I got to wait on the waitress to come get card and then return it to me.

Visited for dinner with spouse. As usual, salad and bread sticks were great. Entree with a take home dish was tasty, good portion and a good buy. Waiter was new and very attentive.
