Pretty standard Italian American food. Not sure why this chain is so big as nothing special. However portions are satisfying, yet mediocre. Breadsticks are nice.

All you can eat Chicken farm. No waiting for a table. Service flucuates. Hostess is very pleasant. Plenty of parking easy to get to

Count on Olive Garden to be consistently busy with good food and varied menu. Their servers/hosts are attentive and friendly but sort of disappear on refills especially "all you can eat" portions which get smaller with each serving (except salad which keeps coming!) Offered 1/2 price wine during wait to be seated time which was a nice touch. Parking is... More

I am a big fan of the Olive Garden chain and I had eaten at this location a couple of years ago. But this time was quite different. We were there mid week in the evening. For some reason, everything was off this time. The service was slow and lackadaisical, the food was uninspiring and, in general, the whole dinner... More

Four for supper. Three of whom got, what else - spaghetti and meatballs! One spaghetti with shrimp (tail on). Plenty to eat. Great bread sticks and shared salad. We asked for/received separate checks for each couple. Minor error on one. Quickly fixed and re-presented. Waiter, MARC was outstanding. Other than the tail on the shrimp all was as it should...

This restaurant is consistent with the other Olive Gardens. This is one of the places we visit, because the food is good, we love the salads, service is friendly and prices are very reasonable. Also my wife must eat gluten free and that is not at all an issue here, they offer a gluten free menu. We will come back... More

Having read a few of the comments regarding this restaurant, decided to have dinner. That was a mistake. The initial observation was the carpet was sticky next to the table. We got a salad and soup as starters whilst ordering the main course and the main course arrived before we had finished the starter. This obviously shows the meal was... More

For a family of 6 aged between 15months and 78 years old, we were looking forward to coming here as it's my mum's favourite US restaurant. We weren't disappointed. The electronic menu/games kept our younger member entertained. The complimentary salad and bread is, as always, welcomed. Everyone's food was superb. A special mention to our server Mark though. Very charming,... More
