The service food and price have always been good here! I've enjoyed many dishes and many drinks as well. If I take a date the waitress will advise her not to see me any more?

We’ve ate at multiple olive gardens before. Walked right into our seats since it was a slow Monday afternoon. Service was a little slow but waitress was incredibly nice. Wish we could remember her name! Food was really well cooked and everything came out timely...More

We love the Olive Garden. Our waitress Emily was so friendly and attentive - our drinks came quickly as did our appetizers and main courses. The food is always amazing, hug portions, served very hot and lots of refills on bread and salad!

I love this restaurant. The staff are always helpful and friendly, suggesting items from the menu. The menu changes often enough to keep me interested. Desserts are to die for. Highly recommend!

We came to this Olive Garden last month. Soup is always very good. Plenty of choices for your entree. I tries the wheat pasta which I did not enjoy. Server changed up my order for me. Meatballs are very good. Salad is nice also.
