The only thing we get is the bread sticks and salad. It's all you can eat. Bathrooms are clean. Food came out quick ..

Brought my mom, her husband, my daughter and her friend as a treat for helping me with my garage sale. I really cannot believe how many things went wrong. It started with only one person at the table getting a 'special' menu - which we didn't realize until we were ordering. Also that particular menu was sopping wet. Salad, breadsticks,... More

My wife and I are 73, and we are both on a very limited income as well as a very strict diet. The Santa Maria, CA Olive Garden is one of our favorite restaurants fora soup and salad lunch as they serve exactly what we enjoy, and plenty of it !!! Michael and Marilyn Clayton, Nipomo, CA

We only go to get bread sticks and salad. Unlimited. Try to get there early there is always a wait but it moves . Worst time to go is during the holidays. Every shopper get Hungary and stops In For a bite. Fast food Italian.

It's been awhile since my husband and I came here. I'm happy to say that the food and service at least for this day has improved! Karina our waitress was friendly and attentive and the food was yummy. Very happy.

It is the typical Olive Garden menu with its good food. We were served by a waitress named Maia who was exceptional. She talked with us and interacted with our granddaughters so that we all had a great time.

There's just not much to say, it's like every other olive garden. If you like olive garden, then you will be happy. If you like fine, Italian dining then skip it.

All Olive Gardens are pretty much the same and this one is no different. They deliver tasty food in decent sized portions with unlimited breadsticks, and either unlimited soup or salad. The service is quick, the food is good, and they have a computer screen right on every table to check out yourself. And to top it off, they're fairly... More

It's typical fare smothered in sauces. The all you can eat salad is great. Service is good. Great for a quick pasta meal. Can get crowded on weekends.
