My daughter, granddaughter and I stopped by for lunch after a dismal experience at an adjacent establishment. We were promptly seated and the wait staff was attentive and polite. My granddaughter had sliders while my daughter and I partook of the endless soup and salad luncheon. They were both fine. I chose the Zuppa Toscana while my daughter tried the gnocchi soup. They were both very good, and we each enjoyed a second bowl. It was a pleasant experience. I also had the opportunity to use the men's room, which was clean and well appointed. It was a quiet environment, allowing for easy conversation (although my four year-old granddaughter occasionally had to be reminded to use her inside voice). This is a very fine establishment with a management that obviously cares to keep its customers happy. Stop by and you won't be disappointed.

I love Olive Garden! I swear I could eat a whole meal just from their free bread sticks. And don't get me started on their Italian-style decorations. But what really makes this particular Olive Garden stand out was our server, Jeremy. He helped me out when times were tough and I needed to know what kind of soup to get. (I had a Tuscan bean type soup and it was absolutely scrumptious.) On the flip side, he brought me even higher when I was happy. You see, I told him about how the mozzarella sticks hit the spot and he validated my opinion by telling me he enjoyed them too, as they are very cheesy and he likes cheese. It felt spectacular to have my opinions backed up by a fellow Olive Garden enthusiast. If you go to this Olive Garden, meet Jeremy and you will not be disappointed.

Standard Olive Garden. Excellent service. Friendly bartenders. Piping hot food. Conveniently located. Plenty of parking. Don't hesitate.

As everyone knows you receive lots of salad with meal, we ordered off of lunch menu, pasta stuffed with sausage for me, wife had shrimp scampi . Both meals were good as was service. Yes I recommend this local for all!

I would like this question answered...Why is this Olive Garden so far below the standards of meals we get at other Olive Garden restaurants? We have tried it numerous times, 90% of them disappointment. It's either the pasta is dried out like it's been nuked too many times, or it has no flavor, or cold. How can you ruin a 5 cheese marinara, yet they do, the last time I ordered it , it tasted like plain tomato paste. The chicken was dry, cold, just blah tasting. The last visit was the end of our going there, as our grandsons chicken tenders were RAW! While they did offer replacements, none of us were going to eat another bite of anything. They did comp the meal, and were sincerely sorry. None of us finished our meals. We have eaten at many Olive Gardens over the years, always enjoyed the meals. So this leads back to the original question, why is this Olive Garden's food so far below the standards? We are done going to this one, as there are others within driving distance.
