My first time eating at this establishment. I had the Ravioli di Portobello and got there promptly at 1100. I had no wait, but did notice it was getting very busy after I finished my meal. The staff was friendly and very tedious to ensure a great visit. Thank you, from an old Veteran!

This place is always jammed - does that tell you something. You can't beat it for the price and the food is very good and consistent. However, you need to get there early unless you want to wait a long time for a table.

The lunch prices have been lowered to get a bigger share of the lunch crowd. The soups & salads are good and they refill them at no charge. Unfortunately, the main courses are mediocre and Olive Garden would do well reconstitute them.

While we typically don't eat at chains, we enjoy Olive Garden after a day at Six Flags. Our only complaint is that the patio is frequently closed for a variety of reasons (not enough servers, bees, etc).

We visited this restaurant with our 2 children for dinner. Our children were tired from traveling all day and not in the best of moods. My daughter was very uncooperative when it came time to order and couldn't decide what she wanted. Our waiter, Robert, was very patient and friendly with us. Our food was great and everyone was satisfied... More

Visited this Olive Garden after picking up my teenage daughter and a couple her friends who spent the day at the nearby Six Flags. The food was average, far from great and far from poor. The service was again average. I guess as long as you can get the breadsticks and salad the Olive Garden is OK.

Went with 5 other people for dinner. Per comments around the table, the pasts fagioli soup recipe has changed. I ordered shrimp scampi and had to exchange it for another dinner choice because it had no taste whatsoever. I'm used to a strong garlic presence, but this was just blah. Plus two other dishes required adding quite a bit of... More

Food: 4 stars Tasted great Server: 2 stars Service was terrible. Server brought the wrong soup. He left because his shift was over but didn't let our group know. New server didn't introduce herself. Ask for a box only brought one because she didn't ask anyone else if they needed a box. Didn't check on us frequently. Ordered a cappuccino... More
