I've always enjoyed eating at Olive Garden however my last two visits have been such a disappointment. Not only had the food taken a turn for the worst but twice now I've been seated and flies have lurked. Not a comfortable feeling when you're eating...More

After being disappointed by one of the local restaurants 2510 where I had hoped to enjoy some of my favorite choices, my daughter and I went to Olive Garden on the recommendation of a former Chef who still lives in Wausau! I am a foodie...More

I have been here so many times since they opened. It's always a pleasure. The food is always great. The staff are awesome. I will continue to return again and again.

As is becoming the norm, it was our waitress first night. You can just imagine the results. Charged us for the wrong wine. You have to watch these chain restaurants as they hound their employees to upsell all meals.

The four of us went out for our daughters birthday meal. We all liked our main courses, but the salad had too little dressing on it. It was like none at all and tasted like plain lettuce. We asked for more dressing on our second...More

We have visited the Wausau Olive Garden twice, and I could not recommend you do the same. The food is heavily sauced, uninspired, and frankly a disappointment. Nothing fresh on the menu except the house salad.
