The local olive garden was renovated this past year and looks great now. It's your typical olive garden food. Good and cheap. The employees at this restaurant always provide us with good service.

The waiter we had was super and accomodating with extra ice and quick refills on drinks and salad. There seems to us to be more lettuce and more lettuce in all Olive Garden salads these days...but we love it...and the more black olives for me the better. This is a nice place with quick service and friendly staff.

We've loved coming here for years on our travels from Texas to Tennessee. However, this trip was horrible from beginning to end :( There was no hostess at the door. Waited forever for someone to seat us. Waited forever for our server. Waited forever for our water orders. Waited forever for our food. Salad was wilted. Soup had that "refrigerated"... More

The food was not up to par and appeared to have sit under the warming lights too long. My mashed potatoes were crusty on top and the glaze on my chicken had glossed over. Also they were understaffed and our server was working hard but could not refill our drinks nor bring us dipping sauce for our bread. Saw no... More

For the first time, a disappointing experience. My son and I like the zuppa toscana. They told us it wasn't ready. That it would take about one hour to prepare, that they had some problems getting started in the kitchen...we are sorry... sorry... yet they were already open for hours that day before we got there. Signs of dysfunction.

Take out order. Called in ahead. Spaghetti and breadsticks were great. The potato soup with spinach and sausage was wonderful! Call in was easy and order was ready when we got there. They checked the order before we left with it.

Jordan wanted Olive Garden for her 14th bday, so that's where we went. Crowded for a Wednesday but not too long of a wait (25min). Abbie was our server and was soooo nice. She made great recommendations from the appetizers to the main course to dessert. My wine glass was dirty and she quickly got me a new one and... More

I've gone to this location for years. I was pleased to see that it has been remodeled since I'd been here last. (It has been quite awhile.) Unfortunately, before the hostess welcomed us, we were unpleasantly greeted by the stench of the bathrooms. I understand that they are right beside the door, but they didn't smell clean or fresh at... More
