Went on a busy Friday night, but got 5 people in within 20 minutes. Food was excellent and our waitress (Anatta...not sure of spelling) was a gem. Olive Garden should give her a raise. She was attentive to our every need and then some. Highly recommend a visit. The wait was worth it.

We had a wonderful dinner. The food was fabulous. We had a party of 9 so we had 2 waiters. One was very nice and personable. The other was too direct for me. He made no attempt to engage with any of us. This would have been a 4 if not for the lack of personality of the one waiter.

Our waiter was new, it was easy to rell, and he needs more training. It took a long time for our drinks to come out (water and iced tea) and then there was another wait for the salad. He was trying, but just was not organized and was rattled having too many tables. The kitchen must have been having an... More

Our server was fabulous and I’m sorry I don’t have her name. She was entertaining and helpful all the time getting our orders and making sure we had... More

I have been going to Olive Garden for over 20 years and I have to say this was probably one of my worst experiences. I've been to Olive Gardens in several states and actually visited this one in Morehead City in June and had no problem. But this time, it started from the moment I walked in the door. Usually...

My family and I are on vacation and decided to have dinner here. The service was great. Our server was quick to take care of anything we needed. However, when he brought out the small plates for breadsticks/appetizers they were dirty and had dried food on them. As soon as we let our server know he brought us clean ones.... More

Stopped here while vacationing. As we usually experience at all Olive Gardens, service was great and food was delicious. Ample portions and an accommodating waiter made this an enjoyable visit for our 19th anniversary. Highly recommend this 5 star restaurant!
