Olive Garden was much better than most . The food didn't have the usual yanked out of the freezer presentation. Our waitress was a darling college student. She made our "on the road" stop special!

You get your bang for your buck at this Olivegarden. Had an excellent server by the name of Jack. I would highly recommend asking for her.

We stopped here passing through for dinner. Not many plaves between Sandusky and Cleveland along I-90. This town has a dozen or so options. Our waitress was excellent and friendly, so was the rest of the staff. Just like any other olive garden.

Don't bother ordering soup, salad and breadsticks alone because they come with most of the meals. Early dinner (3-5 PM) special Mon-Thur not honored on holidays. Waitress very good. Chicken and gnocchi soup very good.

Fettuccine is good but lunch portion was a little small. It was enough for my girlfriend but as a guy I was hoping for a little more.

There's not much else to say. The food is of good quality, service is diligent and efficient, atmosphere is great, and prices are what you expect. These traits have remained consistent across my trips to this location. It's all-round, a recommendation.
