We advised the server and a manager came and asked if he wanted a new serving, he declined the offer. She did remove the price of his meal. She explained that... More

My companion and I were seated near a family with a screaming child. After 15 minutes we thought the parents would make an effort to comfort the child, remove the child, or at least buy alcohol for those who had the misfortune to have already placed an order. When we asked our waiter if management could assist, the manage approached... More

Olive Garden has been one of my favorite restaurants since I can remember. Always standard, but this location wasn't as good. The salads weren't as fresh, the service is sub-par. My entrée wasn't to the same quality as majority of the chain that I've been to.

I love the calimari. I have been many times. Love the eggplant parm., the chicken parm., and a pasta that has shrimp in it but they leave the shells on the tail and it is very messy to eat , but the dish is great. Love the bread sticks - dip them in the alfrado sause. Yummmm!

The title says it all. Just wanted some Italian bread instead of those Wonderbread sticks. Sorry they don't have it. Also if you ask for Olive Oil on the side, no sorry don't have that either but they can give you some regular oil. I don't think they get it. I don't think they understand real Italian.

What can you say about Olive Garden. It's a fair deal with decent food at decent prices. As long as there's no line to get in, I'll keep coming.

My wife and I go here for lunch quite often. We like the soup and salad. However, when we order other items, they are always very tasty. The service is polite and swift. If you are in the area of the Olive Garden and you are hungry, try it out. I am sure there will be something on the menu... More
