We were tired from traveling all day and decided to try the to go ordering on the app. It was very easy to use, and the staff was quick to deliver it right to our car! She was very friendly, wish we could have come inside!

This Olive Garden location is very consistent. We go for lunch often and an occasional dinner. It's clean and the service is always good. They have several dinning areas and a full bar with seating there also. I like their meat sauce and the pasta fagioli. They have a bunch of lunch specials with unlimited soup or salad for under...

I got the meatballs & penne pasta in a vodka sauce. My friend ordered the Italian hot sausage & marinara sauce. She was pleased with the taste of her of her dinner as was I. I'm not overly thrilled with their salad. It's OK but nothing special. The dinners were great so I'll definitely visit again.

This olive garden was good. Alfredo had plenty of sauce on it, the breadsticks were good. Not enough olives in the salad and it had a little to much dressing. My husband liked the tour of Italy. I like that you can pay at the kiosk at table. Friendly waitress.

My experience was good. Server was attentive and friendly. Restaurant's environment was good and welcoming. I just didn't like the reception of the greeter. The salad was amazing as usual and the bread was so fresh and tasty. However, the chicken pieces of my Alfredo Fettuccini was not as tasty as they should be.

It's Olive Garden, so pretty predictable. Big place, outside seating area is small but well done. Convenient location by highways, malls, hotels

Very attentive server, delicious calamari and lovely atmosphere made this a great choice for a reunion with an old friend. They were very patient and accommodating as we stayed and stayed just to be able to talk.

This is very good Olive Garden with an extensive menu. Our waiter was quite friendly and attentive. The salad was one of the freshest Olive Garden salads we have had with an excellent dressing. Also recommend the minestrone. Salad, soup and bread made a very nice light supper after a long day of travel.
