You always know what you get at Olive Garden will be good, and not expensive. This time we had new lunch combos they are offering. There are nine different choices, and all include a choice of unlimited salad or soup, along with their trademark breadsticks. The prices were all under $10. The service was top-notch, taking great care of all... More

Stopped at this Olive Garden for lunch on 4/22/17. Immediately seated (no wait). Server was there quickly with a wine sample. Brought us water and gave us time to ponder the menu. We both ended up ordering lasagna with salad and bread sticks. Our server was wonderful. He continually checked back with us and exceeded our expectations. The manager even... More

My sister and I LOVE Olive Garden. It's our little once a month cheat-treat. The food was outstanding as usual but I (we) didn't feel we had the attention of our server. Order slightly wrong, no water, extra salad charge. Just a lack of attention to details.

Good soup and salad. Had the Shrimp Fritta, which was good, however, I miss the old Spicy sauce versus what that now is served. Unfortunately, now that tourist season has started and had to sit near obnoxious group of 20, will not be back to fall, were people had at least some courtesy for others.

Olive Gardens, no matter where you find one, pretty much serve food to the same standard. The food is good, the service is good. Once in while you would find an Olive Garden that exceeds the normal standard. This is one of them. My usual order, "Tour of Italy", taste better than any other Olive Gardens I've been to. The...

If you've been to one Olive Garden, you know they're all pretty much the same--and are meant to be. We've been to many of them, and this we thought was one of the better ones. Fast service, courteous and attentive. Good food. Reasonable prices. Manager was friendly and made a point to be present but not intrusive. We were pleased... More

Stopped for lunch. They were super busy, but we only had about a 10 minute wait. My hubby had soup, salad and bread-sticks. I had lunch size lasagna with salad/bread-sticks. Cory took our order quickly and delivered the food rapidly. He kept checking back on us and was fast with refills. A very pleasant experience. Highly recommend for a tasty... More

While shopping at the outlets in Williamsburg we stopped for lunch at this location. Seated right away we were waited on by a nice and efficient waitress. We decided on the special of eating one dish in and taking another home. We both had the salad and bread sticks. I had diet coke and my husband had tea. I selected... More

One detail that often concerns me about other restaurant reviews is that sometimes diners share their "overall experience" with a chain. When a reviewer says that Olive Garden always has good food, what does that tell me about their Williamsburg location? Because, trust me, if this was your only dining experience at their chain, you definitely would not say that... More
