November 15th 2016. Sat at the bar to eat lunch at noon and the Bartender/Server was excellent. The service could not have been better. She seemed to really enjoy her job. Food/Service all were great. Enjoyed lunch and would gladly go back.

This is my favorite place to go with my girl friends. We love the linch specials. It appears to be well managed and the staff are friendly. Prices are moderate and their specials offer value.

I had Courtney D. as a server, and I dare say she gave me the most excellent service I have ever had at a restaurant! She was very kind, and prompt with refills, both of my drink and of the breadsticks. She made good suggestions about the menu, glad I got what she suggested! It was delicious! Then she offered...

The food was absolutely excellent. The service was horrible though we called ahead for reservations it still took our food 40 minutes to come. The salad and bread sticks took 30 minutes. The waitress spilled our drinks on us and the table 2 times but didn't even offer anything except " it's been a long day". We seen her outside... More

We ordered from the pick 2. I ordered the salad and pepperoni and sausage Flatbread pizza. The salad was very good and the pizza was good. The pizza taste was different than what l am used to. Not bad, just different. I would order again.

If you like Olive Gardens, you will like this one. We used to eat at OGs quite often, but had not been to one in about 15 years. We had a very nice meal here last evening. The salad has not changed in 20 years and I'm glad it hadn't. Very tasty with fresh veggies, fresh parmesan, and of course... More

We did not eat on this visit. Sat in bar, staff was pushing for us to sit in restaurant even though we were only there for wine. Knew what we wanted to order immediately, took awhile for someone to take our order. The wine was fantastic. It was Roscatto Rosso Dolce. We each orderes quartino's. Wine glasses were adorable! Decent... More

Arrived for dinner with my husband on a Friday night after 7 pm. Short wait time, 1/2 off glasses of wine. Brought to the table and ordered another drink, which arrived promptly. Ordered an appetizer and two meals. Appetizer never came, my meal was burnt (black). Never should have made it to the table. Sent it back, and the server... More

I made a reservation for 6 at 5:45 on a Weds. Still had to wait 5 mins for table and service was slow. The restaurant was not full or crowded. Waiter was slow and messed up my wine order and totally forgot the appetizer we ordered. The food was not impressive as it never is with Olive Garden. I was... More
