I have never been to an Olive Garden and now I have no reason to return. The long wait was for a table was miserable followed by an endless salad of generic lettuce mix was a signal of the meal. My salmon was dry and the broccoli was not fully cooked In all I am thankful that I've not been... More

I love the chicken carbonara here...it's not on the menu, although 'chicken and shrimp carbonara' is, just ask for it without the shrimp. I usually have to ask for some sauce on the side as it has been a little dry the last couple of visits, but it's great and I love it! We had excellent service on this trip,... More

Much like others, this Olive Garden has delicious breadsticks and the food is pretty good, too. Nothing really sets them apart from the other, though.

Did not want to cook so we went to Olive Garden for my favorite salad and lasagna. Both were excellent, service was great and as always the restaurant was very clean.

My wife went with a friend to Olive Garden and she paid with her personal Credit Card. As with most restaurants they take your card to an unknown location to process the transaction. Well about a week later (Carlos Vega) in Colorado was having a field day with her CC numbers. But finally hit a snag at a gas station... More

Lunch with friends can't go wrong with delicious soup and salad special. Refills were handled promptly. Upon request, our waiter efficiently split our check.

Had a quick lunch here today with a friend. We were seated right away on the Saturday after Thanksgiving at lunch time. Hostess was informative about using the credit card payer at the table. Our waiter, Levi, was awesome-personable, informative, friendly and efficient. Food was hot and good.

Our food was significantly delayed during an average dinner crowd, apparently due to the kitchen being backed up. I ordered a steak dish, but the steak served was thoroughly over-cooked. Waters were never empty, plenty of breadsticks and salad were available throughout the meal, and the waiter never looked too busy to be bothered whenever we asked for even the... More

Dinner with the family. Meal was great, huge portions and very good taste. Service was outstanding! Expect to pay a bit more than other establishments in the area but worth it!
