I enjoyed the food and atmosphere, that is until I saw a cook walk out of the restroom without washing his hands. Sorry, but that's a no go for me...

Ate a mid afternoon lunch, not a lot eating at that time. Server was friendly and served our food in a timely manner. All of our food was really good. Price was reasonable.

Our food and service were amazing. I tried foods I never thought I'd like. Our server was amazing and I can't remember her name. I wanted to brag on her. Anyway, I've always hated olive garden until today. My m8md was definitely changed

Olive Garden, this one in particular, is one of my favorite places to eat. Yesterday I stopped in for a late lunch, knowing exactly what I wanted. I was given a lunch menu and, since I'm normally there for dinner, I had to look it over. I spotted the Meatball sandwich on garlic bread sticks with fries. I had to... More

First time visit in over ten years and realized the reason for not visiting in such a long time. The shrimp scampi was cold despite the waitress stating to be very careful the food is hot. The stuffed chicken Marsala, really bad, didn't even look as advertised. There was about a tablespoon of green looking substance in between to chicken... More

Our server, Johnny, was exceptional and our meals were delicious. We didn't have a wait to be seated and our food arrived promptly. I'm always pleased when the server recognizes I need another drink 'before' it's all gone and I have to ask for it and Johnny took care of that flawlessly.

Go to Olive Garden quite often. The best value for lunch. For$6.99 You get all the soup of your choice, a great salad and garlic bread sticks. Everything is fresh and served promptly. Very consistent. Highly recommend Olive Garden for lunch.

The salad didn't have very much dressing, 1 of the 4 meals was so bad it couldn't be eaten, I had the Salmon, very fishy smelling and the flavor was bad, and I love Salmon...just very overpriced for the quality of food. Don't mean to be negative, but just a disappointing birthday night. The service was great, out waiter was... More

Visited on a busy Friday night but were quickly seated after about 10 minutes. Our server was friendly and was efficient bringing out our food despite a "backup" in the kitchen. I enjoyed my peach sangria and recommend it!
