Once you have mastered the complexities of the Olive Garden Menu, this national chain offers a filling meal enhanced by breadsticks and soup/salad and a broad range of appetizer and entree options. If you drink wine, Olive Garden tries to assist with "pairings". This branch had friendly staff and efficient service and a relatively quiet atmosphere - I'd rather not... More

It's hard to find a lot of differences in a major chain restaurant, but we enjoyed a nice family meal here, highlighted by excellent service. Food was good at dinner and as leftovers the next day.

My kids chose to take me here for my birthday before going to see Wasteland on post. Dinner was pretty good. We were a party of 4 adults/1 child(11-years-old), and for some odd reason the Hostess decided to seat us at a true 4-topper table.😕 We were real confused and crowded so by the time we got thru our appetizers,...

TO GO ORDER: They were very busy on a Saturday night but the order was accurate, hot and was ready in a timely fashion. ORDER FROM HERE AGAIN? Most definitely!

Last time I reviewed this restaurant was 4 years ago and we had not been back. This last Sunday evening we were invited to our friends 80'th Birthday party that they were holding here. We arrived and the greeters were friendly and pointed out where our friends were waiting and gave us an estimate of how long it would be... More

Being from Europe this place and food served definitely doesn't resemble real Italian cuisine....starters were good (chicken&gnocchi soup, bread sticks) however mains were far below any standards....I've been served with a lasagne that looked like a pulp was too heavy with some weird suspicious cheese in it (I suspect ricotta)....my bf ordered chicken which was ok(ish)...dry though ....I wouldn't recommend...

We stopped in for a nice lunch. We were seated promptly. Our waiter came by and took our drink order. We tried to go ahead and place our order but the waiter walked away. He got our drinks and then took our order (soup and salad). When he arrived with our order, he asked if we wanted fresh ground cheese... More

We were given a wrong drink and then were charged for it. This tablet method of paying ended up giving the waitress a much bigger tip than she deserved. I didn't notice it until I reviewed the receipt when I got back to the hotel.
