Me and the family went here and enjoyed the meal. We done the deal where you buy one meal and get a meal free. We love when they do this. The food was great. And the potato soup is awesome. The staff came around often to make sure everything was good. I will be going back when I have the... More

This is a typical Olive Garden, same menu as any other OG,, but we enjoy the staff. They are always friendly and helpful - typical Southern hospitality. The food was hot and fresh.

Sat at the bar and had a couple of beers then the chicken parmigiana. Was OK, the sauce and a kind of "canned" taste to it but I ate it all so can't complain.

It has been a while since I dined at this Olive Garden, especially on a busy Friday night. However, our wait was pleasantly short and table location great, despite an overwhelming crowd. Our all time favorite dishes were unchanged and good. I tried the chicken picata and was not a fan. No carbs, but the flavor was a bit off,... More

Went with friends for lunch during the week of Christmas. Even though crowded, service was fast and attentive. Would recommend it. Had the Chicken and Shrimp Carbonara, delicious and a huge portion. The Zuppa Toscana was also fresh and good.

LOVE their fettuccine alfredo! LOVE their Toscana soup! Throw in those yummy breadsticks and you're in Italian heaven! I always go when they have their "Never Ending Pasta" special. The cheesecake is great also!

My husband and I stopped in here for lunch on a weekday. After I ordered and got my meal I couldn't really remember why I liked Olive Garden so much when I was younger. My spaghetti was just OK. As usual, the breadsticks and salad were delicious. As has happened so many other places, a germ-ridden screen was set on... More

We arrive about 6:15pm. We were seated fast and our server Carol was very good. Her section was crowded and she was extremely busy. Our drinks and food delivery was a little slow but given the situation is really wasn’t a problem. We had the Spicy Shrimp Scampi Fritta, which was okay; we would have liked it a little spicier....
