Olive Garden is a chain so I guess you get what you pay for. Food was not memorable. Our server was quite nice and took our orders fairly promptly. Our salad and drinks arrived in short order. After that it took a long, long time...More

Last 2 visits horrible. First time my gnocchi soup was all broth except for 1 gnocchi, and lasagna Mia was flat as a pancake. Not worth the price! Stay away!

We went on a Friday right around 5:00 so I think we beat the crowds. Got seated right away and they weren't busy at all. Our waiter was super nice, a young guy. Salad and breadsticks were fine. Meals were good. Overall a fine meal...More

Haven’t been to Olive Garden in many years. Turns out I have been two weeks in a row last week and this week. Both weeks terrible bar service. First week 15 minute wait and never was served. Second week served after 20 minute wait.

Of course it is a chain and the food is somewhat medium fare. The service was excellent. They make the money off of the cheap Italian red table wines they serve. Skip the wine and enjoy the salad and breadsticks

Stopped here with my daughter who had a hankering for spaghetti. That is what she ordered, with salad and bread sticks. I opted for the fettucine alfredo. Good basic fare; quick and easy.

We are not big fans of Olive Garden as our last few experiences have been less than stellar. While visiting family, they suggested we all meet here for Father’s Day dinner. We were pleasantly surprised. Our party of 13 only had about a 20 minute...More

Well worth a visit. The pasta and bread sticks were great but the service was a bit slow. However the staff were good and we enjoyed our meal. If you love pasta then this is a good place to go.
