We are always happy to enjoy a dinner at the Olive Garden. This time we were with our grandchildren and they loved it. The food and drinks were delicious. The service was great.

It's an Olive Garden. You know what to expect and you get it. Consistent food, good reliable service in a pleasant atmosphere. No surprises! What more do I need to say?

Had lunch here with some colleagues from work. It's an Olive Garden like every other Olive Garden. We each got a lunch special and ordered an appetizer to share.

Online ordering couldn't be easier. Although the online menu is not as extensive as the in-restaurant one, there are still plenty of choices. Choose your entree, which comes with salad or soup plus breadsticks, and designate your pickup time. The order was ready exactly when we requested it. Food was beautifully packaged -- hot food separated from cold food and... More

We are regular customers who enjoy the food and staff at this location. One thing we do Not like at Olive Gardens, is the promotion of games and payment on a tech device on each table. We go out to relax, not to play computer games. We want to pay our server, not on a device. If we had a... More

The chain has done a fairly good job of updating its menu to offer some dishes with lower calories and higher protein. Had lunch with a family member who declared the soup and entree delicious.
