Customer service was excellent, food was excellent, but location was in definite need of updating and maintenance. The parking lot was horrific, everything seemed faded and outdated on both the exterior and parts of the interior. There wasn't many people in the restaurant, so it was rather quiet, but employees, the hostess and what appeared to be the manager in... More

Stoped here a 1pm. Restaurant half empty. Staff standings around. Do not stop here for lunch. Poor service as well would not let anyone seat a the bar. This place has been slow and no focus on the customer.

We have been here many times. Salads and garlic rolls are a must. The service is extraordinary. It is usually packed which says a lot for the food and service

I've eaten in several Olive Garden restaurants, and this was the best. Staff members were quick and courteous. Our server was attentive to our every need and made our young granddaughter feel special with little extras that we didn't even think to request. The food was great - as always.

I always respected Olive Garden as an up and up chain, but this place left a "bad taste" with me. My wife and I arrived here on the advice of our hotel desk clerk. There were no people waiting to be seated and I could see empty tables in the dining room. Before we even could speak and without even... More

Recommended by a family member. It's a little out of the way but food was good and plentiful. Nice server and good value for a family.

The restaurant has an simple menu with good deals. The dishes are not so big, but sufficient for a meal. You have also free salad and bread as much as you want. The ambience is simple, but neat and well decorated. Service is good as well.

Calamari was the size of a dime. Never saw calamari so small. $9.99 Buy one take one home starting at $12.99. If you want meat or chicken $3.00 more. The quality was way below normal. The manager gave us a certificate for price of the calamari so we took it off the bill. That's how bad it was. The food... More

Thought we might go for a great lunch at Olive Garden. We thankfully missed the lunch rush so we were seated immediately. We ordered the soup and salad special. We like that it is light and not heavy. Our salad had too much dressing and we sent it back. The second batch was much better. Our soup and bread sticks... More

I love Olive Garden. But the only complaint I have is one day we came in and the waitress said they were out of lasagna?? Come on now who did she think she was fooling? Anyhow I still was able to find something I liked on the menu.
