A typical Olive Garden. Very busy business on a Friday evening. Food was predictable. Service was acceptable. Prices reasonable.

Not bad. The chicken a little over cooked on mile. My son in law had chicken alfredo and his was moist. Chicken Gnochi soup not too bad.

I know when you go into a restaurant alone, the service industry cringes. But, I had to wait to be greeted, wait for beverage, wait for my soup. Wait for my dirty dishes to be picked up off my table. I thought the Og worked in teams? I shouldn't have had to wait while the staff walked around ignoring that... More

To be honest, we ate here because the nearby restaurants had 2 hour wait times! But, I'm glad they did. We were seated within 20 minutes, and the food was served promptly and efficiently. It seems we always order the same thing at Olive Garden, but it is always good. The entrees were hot, and the salad cold, breadsticks delicious,... More

Saturday night was packed but the server in bar area was hustling, gave amazing service with a smile!! I looked forward to the new pesto sauce but could barely eat it and brought it home in hopes of diluting it somehow. (added fresh Parmesan and let the oil settle and managed to eat a little for lunch today but will... More

Prudence, our waitress, provided excellent and timely service with a friendly attentive smile. Nice atmosphere with spacious tables. Salad was traditional "Olive Garden" salad with lots of iceberg lettuce (I prefer more romaine and other varieties mixed in). I had the traditional lasagna and while it was hearty, it was rather flavorless and needed more spices to make it unique.... More

To start off, the front staff needs some work. No greeting, no anything. We had to go up and then wait for them to finally answer us to give us the buzzer. The young gentleman seating us was ok. But to the girl running the computer, get a personality for that position. Erin our waitress was fun and caring about... More

I go here only when other people want to, and the experience is the same all over the country. A beautiful bar and cafe area, and food that could be out of a microwave. This would be the last place I would take someone to make any other impression other than 'I really don't care what you think'.

We were in town for a funeral but had the opportunity to get together with our daughter and two grandchildren. We had a great time visiting and eating. We never felt rushed. We ordered different meals and we all were very happy

We arrived shortly before the homecoming young adults did. We were told 25 minutes wait. After 45 minutes I got up to find out what was happening. They did not have us in their computer so our pager would never light up. The hostess said she will find us a table now. We never saw her again. The other hostess... More
