Ate dinner here and the food was great but the service was better. Absolutely one of the best Olive Gardens in the US. Go here for dinner. Don't know why they received average or poor ratings - my experience was great!

I have always had great service, value and fast meals from Olive Garden. There meals are on a level that surpasses the price. Maybe that's why we go so often!

Although the Oaks Mall has a number of dining options, I do prefer the Olive Garden since it's just slightly "off mall" and has its own parking lot. Even during the holidays, it was easy to find parking and not deal with crowds. Like most...More

That said.... its got its "thing!" The breadsticks the "bottomless" ceaser (teaser!) salad and the all you can eat NOT-al dente pasta! Kids love it--but they would eat silly putty if you doused it with Marina....
