We always find something good on their menu. I like to try different menu items. The salad and breadsticks round out a good meal. Friendly service.

The wait for seating was expected but the wait for water was crazy. The wait for salad, breadsticks was equally crazy. Then, the wait for food was exhausting. The bills were all wrong and the wait for corrections was excruciating. We frequent Olive Garden and this was one of the worst visits in memory.

I haven't been to any Olive Garden in almost six years. When my mother suggested we go out to lunch together since my youngest is now in school. We decided that Olive Garden would be nice since this was where we used to go often before the youngest was born, Wow what a letdown.The breadsticks just seemed stale; the waiter... More

I feel Olive Garden has gone down hill in the sense that making fresh marinara every days just isn't in the cards. Restaurant owners need to get something straight: The only way to compete in today's world is by using fresh ingredients and making marinara fresh daily.

One Friday evening, my children (ages 13,11, 9) and I decided to stop at The Olive Garden for dinner during our Halloween Costume Quest. The staff was accommodating, congenial. We were comfortably seated, our meals were good. Considering that this restaurant is a moderately priced chain restaurant, we did enjoy a variety of selections. The salad was fresh, the bread...

Had to ask waiter about a special desert. Did not get mints. Complained to the hostess and she did give mints. Very disappointed. Won't go back for any... More

We went to the place once for dinner. I had heard quite good review of the restaurant and it lived up to my expectations. The waiter serves bread while waiting for our order. I simply loved the taste of the bread. I ordered veg minestrone soup and a desert (unable to recollect the name but something related to chocolate) which... More

We go there now and then year after year for our grandchildren's sake. Good staff and reasonably price. Wish they would have more seafood pasta dishes.
