During a vacation, we once again visited this Olive Garden location twice. Now that they don't have the 'lunch size' dinners offered anymore, we share a full meal, which is more than enough, and is split in the kitchen and delivered on two plates, - very nice! As usual, the salad and garlic bread was tasty, and a nice way... More

We were looking for lunch and thinking Italian when we passed by the Olive Garden on Highway 111. We were please with the service and the food served. The lunch menu offered nice sized Italian dishes at reasonable prices.

As usual the restaurant was full but we were seated fairly quickly. The salad was perfect and crisp with their delicious house dressing, the breadsticks were hot and slightly salted, the soup was hot and substantial. The pasta dish was cooked just right, not all mushy. The waitress was efficient and friendly. Easy free parking. Wheelchair access with 2 ramps.

Braised beef in any dish here is great. We usually eat in the bar because we don't want to wait. There are lots of local families that come here so it must be good.

The Olive Garden is entirely predictable but that is precisely why it is appealing. When you want some descent food at an affordable price without the pretence of fine dining and the associated cost then this is the place to go. The menu is a bit limited with many variations of pasta and chicken. All entrées come with unlimited soup... More

Rainy Monday and this facility was not up to the standards we were accustomed to. Bath rooms were not clean. Bar was located in entry area so we walked!

This was a very nice experience. The food was very good and the service was timely. We have been to an Olive Garden before and this was what I expected.
