Olive Garden is a chain, but it's a good option when you don't know the area well enough to find a hometown Italian restaurant. Stopped at this one near the Galleria outside of Birmingham. It was busy on a Sunday evening, but they got us right in and servers were helping one another take care of all of us. Great... More

The wife and I went there this afternoon, but wish we had gone next door to Outback. We went in about 3:30 and when they sat us they sat 3 folks in the booth right behind us and in addition there was already a couple behind them. I started my stopwatch and it took 40 minutes to get our entree.... More

Four of us visited this location on Saturday evening. We were told the wait would 45 minutes. But I never mind waiting at this location. The wait was only 20 minutes, but that was not bad since we had a place to sit and plenty of people to watch. We all went for the "Create Your Own Pasta Bowl. Great... More

When we first got there the parking lot was so full I had a hard time finding a parking place because they were so busy. The wait was 30 min. for a table. When we got to the table the waitress was very nice and helpful on picking out something on the menu. The waitress was good about keeping our... More

The cook here is absolutely amazing and is probably the best Olive Gardens I have ever been to. I was turned off by one Olive Gardens in the past and didn't eat there much but now I will be going back ALOT!

We had a group of nine former classmates. They seated us at a big round table, in a separate section. We had our own little private place. The waitresses were very attentive, and even took pictures for us. As always, the food was wonderful & the service was great. They never made us feel rushed, as we sat and talked... More

Came to town for a meeting during a winter storm. About the only place open to eat. Got in ordered food right away. Service could've been better but the food was great.

We arrived on a rainy night that might have kept the crowds down but the friendliness of the maitre d, made up for the weather. Seated almost instantly our waitress showed up promptly and tried to sell us a bottle of wine. We were neither interested in that particular grape, nor in drinking that much wine with our meal. After... More

The local olive garden was renovated this past year and looks great now. It's your typical olive garden food. Good and cheap. The employees at this restaurant always provide us with good service.

The waiter we had was super and accomodating with extra ice and quick refills on drinks and salad. There seems to us to be more lettuce and more lettuce in all Olive Garden salads these days...but we love it...and the more black olives for me the better. This is a nice place with quick service and friendly staff.
