I was taken here for a surprise celebratory dinner and was completely impressed. I was shocked at how small it was, but was an early Thursday evening and not too crowded. Service was ok. Bread/dip was great, stuffed mushroom appetizer and then I had the...More

Even if you don't like garlic, you should love the meals at the Garlic Rose. I've been there numerous times and have never been disappointed. The pesto sauce for the bread was delicious. Nice size and delicious salad with the meal. I had the chicken...More
