Good family restaurant, but not impressed with the menu or the food. Not much for vegan or vegetarians. Lots of pasta, cheese, and chicken dishes. Prices are high for what you're getting. Not returrning.

Always wonderful food at the Olive Garden. Their unlimited salad is just that unlimited. Salad dressing is great. Do not eat too much as you will want to fill up on your pasta.
