We always enjoy going to Olive Garden and this one is no exception. When we snowbird in Florida, we always visit this one several times. The staff are all friendly, helpful, and service is quick. On this visit, my husband had the Chianti Braised Beef with Gnocchi....5 stars! I had the Cucina Mia with Angel Hair Pasta, Asiago Garlic Alfredo... More

My family and I were there yesterday for Easter Sunday lunch. I called ahead to have my name placed on the list for seating. We showed up 45 minutes later and only had to wait 5 minutes for a table. Amazing! My wife, two kids, grandma and myself all enjoyed our meals. No complaints here! After eating at Olive Garden... More

You can't go wrong with Olive Garden's soup and salad, and I appreciate that you can sample the wine before ordering and have the "quartino" option when you want more than a glass but less than a bottle. In particular, this is a spotless and very appealing Olive Garden. Our friendly and professional waitress told us about her favorite kayaking... More

We went on Sunday about 4:30 and were seated right away in the bar area. The bartender, Ben was very nice and attentive to our needs. I ordered the stuffed mushrooms and my husband ordered the Five Italian cheese fonduta. Both were good, although I wasn't expecting mozzarella cheese on top of stuffed mushrooms, it was still delicious. I ordered... More

This restaurant opened several years back now in our small town. It has copious amounts of parking and has a very large dining room, which is sectioned off. The facility appeared to be very clean, the staff friendly, service and food were both on point. While the pictures of the meals and the delivered product were different, the taste was... More

This was a first for me at Olive Garden. The service was so slow that it took 2.5 hrs to get finished. Our bread sticks and salads were an hour in coming for refills. The soup bowls were half filled if that and we had the soup and salad. Even after saying something it did not improve. Then after speaking... More

A year ago, my husband and I ate at this Olive Garden three times during the month we were vacationing in Florida. The service was awful each time, and the place was dirty. What an improvement at the restaurant since then. Our waiter, James B. was perfect in every way. We never had to ask for any refills. We were... More

We usually eat at Olive Garden in a group, perhaps after a round of golf. They take a reservation, so it works well. Our waitress surprised us with tastings of wine! Many of us liked the wine so well that's what we ended up ordering with dinner, but the first glass was the free sample! I really love the endless... More
