The Olive Garden is one of my favorite places to eat. All of their selections are well prepared and they give you plenty. I also love the salad and breadsticks. Great place to eat and reasonably priced.

The food was overly salty, and my salad was drowning in dressing. The service was so slow, for two people for lunch eating soup and salad, it took over 30 minutes to get our food???

Unfortunately, this Olive Garden is lacking in food quality. I've been to several Olive Gardens in the area and this is one of the weaker ones. The service is standard -- nothing excellent, nothing horrifying. The one near Arundel Mills is better run.

We use to love Olive Garden but our last few visits were disappointing. I ordered spaghetti & meatballs and the meal came out semi warm. My husbands food wasn't that good. We stopped going here. We would rather spend our money at a different restaurant.

We are a family of four that visited on 5/29/16. The waitress we had was very nice, but her support staff was painfully slow. Olive Garden is not fine dining and orders usually come out of the kitchen quickly. Two and a half ours later...More
