This is the first time we visited this location and compared other locations this has a great ambience. High ceilings and enough space between tables and good atmosphere to enjoy the food and have a nice conversation . Our server was excellent. Food was really really good.

Next the salad which is always good except today where there was a lot of slimy discolored leaves. Next the entrees I ordered ravioli marinara with meatballs, I received ravioli with meat sauce which I... More

Been to Olive Garden many times but stopped going there after food quality deteriorated. Went back after months and I was surprised to find the food quality and portuins greatly improved. They still give you the unlimited salad bowl and breadsticks which are still great. But the entrees are of a much higher quality. I had the chicken and shrimp... More

The last time we were there it was for someone's birthday and we had a lot of fun and the food and drinks were really good. The salad is all you can eat and if you are on a budget you can get salad and soup and it wont cost a fortune.

Trying to kill some time, my wife and I went to Olive Garden for a leisurely dinner. Couple glasses of wine and she ordered the linguini and I tried a new dish, wish mussels and shrimp and linguini.

Well first of all the turnaround time was shorter than the quoted 15-20 minutes. Which was a good thing! For those of you who know Olive Garden the build your own appetizers seem to have shrunk. The speed of the service was adequate; however, we had to request fill ups of beverages after the meal. Also we had to remind... More
