After visiting some so-so restaurants for monthly luncheons with former co-workers, we decided to try Olive Garden again. Honestly, we had been there previously but had opted to try new places for the last few years. I guess that we had gotten a tad bored...More

The Olive Garden is a local favorite. The unlimited breadsticks and salad are hard to beat. A spaghetti dinner is about $10. You won't go home hungry. The place is clean and the waitresses are friendly.

Very, very good food. Staff was very courteous. It's nice to have a place to go away from home where you have the same quality and courteous service that you have at your hometown restaurant.

Lunch menu is great! Bottomless soup and salad with a sandwich was a very reasonable price! Don't know what makes the salad so good but it was soooo good! Great soup too. Good service, very attentive. Can't wait to go back when we next visit

Had an early dinner just after 5 pm. There was already a good crowd. Service was a bit slow but the server Larry was pleasant. He did not offer a taste of wine as we saw in the survey before we left. The house salad...More

My youngest son refers to Olive Garden as the McDonalds of Italian food. I really thought better of them. This particular Olive Garden is the absolute worst. Unfortunately, this was not the first time we have eaten there. Each time the service has been incredibly...More
