This was probably the best Olive Garden restaurant that my family and I have ever visited. Our server was awesome and our food was delicious. We arrived at the restaurant about 75 minutes before closing and was fearful that the food would be old. Not the case! The food was served hot and amd tated delicious!

My daughter and I wanted Italian on our weekend away. We ended up here after trying other ridiculously busy places (1.5 hour wait for TWO?!). We were happy we ended up here. We had a great server and an excellent meal.

If you want authentic Italian cuisine, go to Italy. If you want Italian-inspired food on date night go to Olive Garden. The food is consistently hot and delicious. The menu offers a variety of rich and savory fare along with lighter entrées for those watching their diet or who want to save room for dessert...like the Sicilian tart cherry cheesecake.... More

Our extended family all met at olive garden. They had a huge table for us all. It was a bit hard to hear but we managed. The food was just alright. Not enough sauce on any of the pastas. I had noodles that were hard and didn't have any sauce on them at all. And 2 meatballs for 3.49 feels... More

We are here during Ryder Cup week, had typical Olive Garden food, it was good....but the restaurant had a bad bad odor when entering, and the lights were really bright, wait staff a little annoying. This seemed like an older Olive Garden...I would probably not eat here again.

Fast and quick service. Good food. Friendly, helpful staff. Popular on a Saturday night, so expect a wait.
