Ate here for lunch. Quality has slipped. Saw several Flies buzzing around in eating area. servers carrying trays where their hair can get in food. Lunch took 50 minutes to get our meal. Olive Garden - go back to your roots and use fresh food.

Visited for Mother's Day, and despite being busy the hostesses were pleasant, our waitress Sarah was very friendly, and it was nice to see management out running the floor to keep things calm and organized. Great food with great company!
