Family stop after a day at a basketball tournament. Service was quick and very friendly, although a little slow with the refills. Food was good and consistent with Olive Garden Standards. A perfect stop after a long day

The meal that I had was very good. I have never been the recipient of bad food at any of their restaurants. The service was also very good

We had heard alot about Olive Garden and it was crowded but I just fail to see the greatness I was led to expect. Food was good but not great, service was on & off during our visit, sometimes we had service sometimes we didn't, and the prices were a little high,

11:00 quick girlfriend lunch before work. We walked in and the wait area was packed!!!! We were told the wait was 15-20 minutes. Sat in the bar in a nice booth and were served our soup and salad immediately! Wonderful food.....and hot breadsticks! Sean the bartender was very attentive. Cheap lunch at under $20 total for both of us!

From the minute we walked in the door the staff was friendly and helpful. We were seated right away and drink order taken. Waitstaff came back to take our order and was very helpful. There was not a complaint about anything. Food was served hot and came quickly. Server was great.

I ate at this restaurant while traveling as it was very close to my hotel. Very nice host, was seated right away and Katie was an awesome waitress. I had the Chicken Margarita and it was delicious. The chicken was cooked perfectly and the lighted breaded zucchini was a very good complement to the chicken. Not too big on pasta.... More

I ordered the Tilapia Piccata. In addition to the always fresh salad and breadsticks, this entree was a winner. The fish was perfectly cooked and the sauce was gentle with a little bite from the capers. It was served very hot and as the plate itself was heated, it retained the heat until the last bite. It was served with... More

Went for dinner. Enjoyed the buy one take one special going on right now. We were really impressed with the service we received. Waiter had said it was his first day. For being his first day he did really well. Will come back again when we are in the area.

This location did an outstanding job. This was our first time at this location. Food and service was outstanding! Would recommend the zuppa soup! Got in fast and no wait on a Saturday afternoon. Nice big seating area.

What happened Olive Garden? The food we had at this Olive Garden was very mediocre. When I am paying $18+ for a pasta entree I expect some amazing flavors and that was certainly not the case with my Shrimp Scampi, it was pretty tasteless! The salad was overdressed and pretty disgusting! The general consensus with most of the people in... More
