The Olive Garden is one of the few fairly decent chain restaurants I enjoy. This particular Olive Garden is one of the best. Very Friendly service and the food was quite good, even though it is not the Italian food your Mom makes. This is a great olive Garden!

Olive Garden was running on all cylinders tonight as my wife and I enjoyed soup, salad, breadsticks, shrimp scampi and an exotic sausage/pasta concoction. My frozen margarita didn't have much tequilla but it tasted great and only cost $6.50! The service was efficient and very friendly. And with decent prices, what more could you want?

My family ordered our meals by telephone because the online program was not working properly. We were told to wait 20 minutes so they could prepare the order. After getting the order, we sat down at home to enjoy a great meal. But wait!!! Where is the salad that I ordered with my meal? Well, I guess they forgot to... More

Always a good time. We fill our bellys with good food and a couple drinks. Pig out on breadsticks and have a great dessert.
