We thought we would give Olive Garden another chance but the food is average and expensive. Would rather go to Carrabba's or family Italian restaurant.

My father recently became confined to a wheelchair and going out became quite a challenge. We went to Olive Garden and they were so very accommodating and nice to us. Thank you for the extra kindness when you know he is bummed about his situation.

I am not typically a huge fan of Olive Garden but we went to this location as it was my sons birthday and he loves Olive Garden. I was pleasantly surprised. Food was good and service was exceptional and we had an enjoyable time.

One of my friends had an allergy when we went here and the manager personally went through the whole menu and highlighted every single meal she could have. The bread they give before the meal is so good that you usually get full before you...More
