I love the soup and salad. It is unlimited. The servers are always willing to get refills. The thing about this meal is the consistency. Every time I come it is good. Once in awhile I try something else but I always come back to the soup and salad:-)

We only had to wait 15 minutes to get a table. The scarecrow fest was going on so the town was very busy. Lots of people.

I have have mixed experiences with this chain... can't go wrong with their unlimited soup and salad though! Sometimes service is horrible and sometimes spot on. Sometimes chicken is fresh and sometimes tastes freezer burnt and rubbery.

I've been to Olive Garden, you've been to Olive Garden--I have no news about the food there; it is fine, not gourmet but not terrible. Mostly I wanted to give a good review to our server at the St. Charles Olive Garden, Aaron, who went out of his way to give us great service. He brought refills of everything before... More

With all the publicity Olive Garden has receive recently, I was apprehensive about eating there. Yes the free items were gone, yes the salad seem a little skimpy, we had to ask for more salad dressing. But, it is still the same quality of food that makes you want to come back. We did have excellent service. Sonia was the... More

I am gluten-intolerant. Yesterday on June 26, 2016, I ate at the St. Charles location. I made it very clear to my server that I needed to eat gluten-free and ordered the GF rotini. After waiting a long time for our food, I started eating. After I had a few bites, I noticed a spaghetti noodle in my pasta. I... More

So a lot of people look at me as a freak for liking Olive Garden, but I find the food here is tasty, convenient and reasonably priced. It may not be "real" Italian food, but a good American interpretation. I am trying to eat healthy and thus avoid the bread sticks which are absolutely fantastic, especially with a side order...
