Their bread sticks are to die for. Love their Italian dishes, but wish they'd come back with their Apricot chicken plate.

This is a new menu from Olive Garden. I just tried because I like a grilled chicken. It cooked with chicken breast and well combined with tomato. Especially, a grilled zucchini was so great. Our table server provided a great service for us.

What can I say, great service, Great food and plenty of it. Price is always a little high but owell you get what you pay for. The Spaghetti and the Alfredo sauce is be best.

Stopped here with my father after an event at the WNC Ag Center. Service was great. Food was Olive Garden food. It is a chain after all. But the service here was fantastic from the moment we walked in until the time we left.

My boyfriend and I went one slow afternoon and got seated immediately but it took the waiter (cameron) 20 minutes for him to realize we were there. He was talking to a table right next to us, he got their order and the people even got their food before he took our drink order. It's very upsetting to get ignored... More

This is a good place. We always have very good experience. They serve you very well and the service is really fast.
