We hadn't been to one of these in years, but it was right next door to our hotel (where we enjoyed complimentary cocktails), making it an obvious and easy choice after a very long day of travel. Well, they could not have cared less about...More

It was delicious and when they brought out my mother's dessert they had a candle and happy birthday written along the plate.

Olive Garden is a favorite of our family, has been for years. This Olive Garden seems to be slipping where the food is concerned, used to be better. Still a good date night or family dinner restaurant.

The food is always good, the pasta is great. My kids love the bread before ordering, just make sure not to get full because the plates come well served.

It has been around for a very long time. Parking is an issue, due to hotel next door. The food has always been good, not authentic, but will do. The waiters are quick and the bar makes tasty drinks.
