Like always, my wife and I were tired from work and looked forward to eating out. The restaurant is close by and the food has been good. Well to our surprise, the place has declined where there were few patrons on a Friday night. The service was average but food selection was limited. In fact several items were repeated on... More

So we used to go this Olive Garden location all the time and it was good enough. After almost a year of not going, we went and it was just terrible. For the appetizers, the calamari wasn't hot enough and was rubbery, but the scampi was pretty good as well as the mushrooms. For the meals, the chicken parm was... More

The Olive Garden is one of the few fairly decent chain restaurants I enjoy. This particular Olive Garden is one of the best. Very Friendly service and the food was quite good, even though it is not the Italian food your Mom makes. This is a great olive Garden!

Olive Garden was running on all cylinders tonight as my wife and I enjoyed soup, salad, breadsticks, shrimp scampi and an exotic sausage/pasta concoction. My frozen margarita didn't have much tequilla but it tasted great and only cost $6.50! The service was efficient and very friendly. And with decent prices, what more could you want? Oh, did I mention that... More

My family ordered our meals by telephone because the online program was not working properly. We were told to wait 20 minutes so they could prepare the order. After getting the order, we sat down at home to enjoy a great meal. But wait!!! Where is the salad that I ordered with my meal? Well, I guess they forgot to... More
