My family visited here on a late Sunday afternoon after a sporting event. About a 10 minute wait, which went by quickly. We were seated by a friendly hostess and told of all the specials. Our food arrived quickly and was delicious. Our service and meals were both wonderful and we'd definitely visit this location again.

We were seated around 9:00 pm. Lots of empty tables but it took 50 min to get our order. People that came in long after us got their meal before us. My steak was med rare but dry like old shoe leather and very cold. My husbands pasta looked like it had been reheated in a microwave as it was... More

Been there many times and have no complaints. Never ending salad and bread sticks a plus. Have tried many selections, usually their specials or off the $9.99 menu and always satisfied. Busy during peak hours, wait line....if there are only two of you, wait much less

We went to Olive Garden Tuesday the 12th and had a wonderful experience. From the hostess to our server and the quality of the food. Our server Jill was wonderful. Helpful, she knew the menu and how to interact with customers. It was my brother and sister in laws wedding anniversary and we had a great meal

Walked in and all I smelled was urine, gross, should've left right then. Place was filthy, all the workers looked like zombies and dressed sloppily, although our server looked put together and was very nice. Food was blah, atmosphere dirty and blah, won't ever go back, even the menu is bad these days.

When first entering the restaurant, I was immediately put off by the smell....old wine spills, old grease. Not appetizing. Tablets on the tables enticing kids to play games instead of communicate is not really an improvement. We asked them to remove ours. The restaurant was stiflingly hot until someone opened a window somewhere. They no longer automatically bring the big... More
