Olive Garden never fails me. Unlimited breadsticks, unlimited salad. Always great. I got the fettuccine Alfredo. Some of the noodles weren't fully cooked but other then that it was delicious.

The food is extremely good however way too salty. The price is too high, on it's just noodles and sauce! The salad is very good I just wish they had more of a selection of the salad dressing. But I have grown to like it.

I think Olive Garden has went down hill. Flavor of food was bland. The food came fast but was not hot, Luke warm at best. Usually the food is good,maybe it was an off night.

This Olive Garden is very similar to all of the restaurants in the chain. Food was consistent to what's we've had at other Olive Gardens. Prices have gone up. Most entrees were $15 or more.

I stopped here after a very long day at work. I couldn't decide what sounded good so I ordered Appatizers. The first one was a chicken ravioli dish and I didn't really care for it but it was prepared well. The other was calimari. The...More

We do like Olive Garden but have decided for the price it's just not worth it. The last visit we each ordered a beer. Even though it was a specialty beer I am pretty sure we could have bought a 12 pack for the price...More
