First the Italian Margarita tasted like kool-aid. Then the salad actually had brown and slimy lettuce. Next the entree margarita chicken was as dry and hard as leather. One of the managers came and offered us a new entree. We were no longer interested. This Olive Garden is typically not as good as others- but this time was the worst.

Well, it seems that every time I go to Olive Garden, the number of stars I give goes down. Hubby and I went on Monday night after a very busy day, we got there about 7:15 and were seated right away, but within 10 minutes after we were seated, a large party of 8 or 10 people was seated right...

We arrived early for dinner, was seated quickly, staff nice, place clean. That's about all the good things I can say. The calamari appetizer was under cooked, other food lacking in flavor, and my favorite, the pizzas were taken off the menu a long time ago. Not the Olive garden of old.

We went in the middle of the day for their awesome soups and salad and bread sticks. It was so good on a cold day. Our waitress was awesome, the bread sticks were hot, our soups were so good and the salad was fresh and cold. I had a glass of their house wine which was good. We are so... More

Great food every night, staff member Hannah was great at her job, stayed on top of everything, I ordered the endless pasta with salad and breadsticks and NEVER had to wait on anything. Hannah was very wonderful and represents the Olive Garden to the highest standard!

The food was good. I had a meatball sub which was great. As always the bread sticks and salad rocked! Our waitress hardly visited our table. She asked for our drink order but as soon as we went to tell her she turned and left. She came back a few minutes later again to ask. Not sure why she took... More

We hadn't been to an Olive Garden in years because we found better Italian restaurants, but since I was in the mood for Italian and we were nearby, we decided to give it a try. We expected to wait, but were surprised we were seated soon after arriving. The server was attentive and friendly and knew the menu and wine... More

Olive Garden has a good franchise operation and you can expect the same quality service and quality at almost any location you visit. Of note - watch the video machine that is placed on your table.

My husband and I both had the day off so we decided to have lunch at Olive garden. First off when we walked in the hostess was not very pleasant, we were seated a few minutes later. It was very loud where we were seated. The food did not taste as good as usual. I was not very happy with... More

Though we haven't been to the Olive Garden in a while, it used to be one of our favorite restaurants. I just can't say that any longer. Portions are smaller, prices are larger, and the overall quality was average at best. So disappointing. Even the wait staff was just average. Our waitress greeted us with a " Hey. What's go... More
