The salad was horrible. Usually a treat the lettuce was old, wilted and discolored. Not up to Olive Garden standards!

Had lunch there recently and had enough food on my plate for two meals. As always, the food and service were excellent. Plus, who doesn't like unlimited salad and bread?

Food is always good, but service is sometimes slow. If you visit with a large group, expect to spend about 2 hours there.

I went here with my sister for lunch. Our server was really nice and did an excellent job. The food came out quickly. They kept refilling our drinks. We felt somewhat entrapped by the chocolate lasagna-we loved it!

The $5.99 all you can eat soup, salad and breads ticks combo is very nice. Fresh green salad, although light on the peppers and tomatoes, is more than adequate. You have a choice of three different soups which should cover most folks tastes and all the breadsticks one can choke down. The breadsticks were really cold so asked for replacements......they...

When we first were seated at our table and drink order was taken, we thought we were important and waiter was attentive. Many times the waiter walked past us and our drinks were empty. We order water because we like it not because it's free of charge. When we got our second bowl of salad, no bread sticks accompanied... So... More

We went to Olive Garden with our two young grandchildren while on a mini-vacation. The waiter was very attentive and helpful. The food was delicious, and the atmosphere was very nice. We've eaten there a long time ago, and we enjoyed going there again!

My hubby and I have been eating here since it first opened. Food has always been good. My favorites are the fettuccine alfredo, minestrone soup and of course salad and breadsticks. Best dessert is the fried donuts with chocolate sauce. If it's around pumpkin season, the pumpkin cheesecake is a must. Even if you're stuffed, get one to go for... More

The food was very good and my granddaughter and I enjoyed ourselves. Our service was a little slow. I would suggest not going from 12pm til 1:30 during the work week.
