Hard to believe other people are complaining. This is a perfect for the price restraurant. Always very very busy which means they must be doing something right. Just try to avoid "rush hours" if you do not want to wait.

For a chain resturant this one is exceptional, the salad and breadsticks are worth the trip alone. Most everything on the menu is very good and the portions are large enough to share. The atmosphere is nice and the service is always top notch.

This restaurant has a great deal for bottomless soup, salad and bread sticks. You can even try different varieties of soup with each bowl. Great place to go if you want to fill up for a few bucks.

A taste of heaven, says it all, For heaven is where you may end up after spending a terrible evening at this establishment.I would like to start out by crediting the Olive Garden chain by saying your food is decent. And i would eat at any other one of your restaurant's every now and then. But the moment i stepped into this facility i knew right away something was wrong. It started out by being greeted by a more then joyous blond who to her credit.. was. nice.. very nice to me.(doesn't like being hit on by high school dropouts)for she appeared to be in her mid 30'sMight I add there was a slight smell to her oh say, Marijuana? and her eyes were bloodshot, VERY clear to tell she had something earlier that day. This is a HUGE turnoff for what i want to see at a restaurant, As for this particular building. I shall never return.Now then, the food tasted decent but once again being turned off a few more times for when my food was being catered to my table, It was clearly obvious in the busers eyes that he had smoked some dope earlier that day or on his break as well, Thank god he didn't talk to me I didn't want to smell more of that infernal crap.Also the one other thing i have to complain about this place, When i had to get up to use the restroom, i caught a glimpse, and heard.. What clearly was nothing but Illegal immigrants working the back.... I nearly got sick i sure hope they didn't cook my food. None of them were speaking English just awful to see this happen to our country.

PROS: decent food, compared to the service anyways.
CONS:very loud kitchen, (was sat in a terrible location)...they need to wall off that area from guests?
The staff was on drugs?
And for god sakes, higher americans.

Okay, I will start by saying that I absolutely LOVE Olive Garden's food. They serve amazingly tasty and affordable dishes. I used to work there and I couldn't get enough of their salads, fettucine alredo, ravioli de portobello, chicken marsala and the breadsticks. On another note: My husband and I decided to eat at Olive Garden on Sat. night last weekend and what a mistake that was. Our waiter appeared to be stoned. I asked/begged him to not put onions in our salad...our salad came with onions. We asked for lemons in our iced teas...they came without lemons. We didn't get breadsticks for a long time and our server never came back. Another gal replaced him and brought our breadsticks. She explained that his shift was over (okay I can understand that so I let it go). Our food did not arrive for 40 minutes!!! My chicken marsala had sat so long in the kitchen that it had absorbed all the sauce and was as dry as a whistle. I ate it without saying anything and we asked for our bill. We waited for 20 minutes for our bill and it was delivered by the manager. He didn't offer to comp our meal but suggested quite unprofessionally that we call the service line and report how we felt and get $3 off our next visit. Oh boy! I won't be going back for a loonnng time! It is obvious that Olive Garden is under poor management. A quick change there and it should be right back to the great quality family restaurant that it once was.

PROS: delicious food
CONS: terrible service, unorganized kitchen, slow food delivery to table

I really like this restaurant: they have plenty to choose from (I am a vegetarian) & the service is friendly & quick. Prices are not very expensive & the food is consistently good.

What happened? This Olive Garden was pretty consistent with the others until recently. The last couple of times I've eaten there, the food is just lackluster. They're supposed to use the same fomula everywhere, but something has changed here. The pizza used to be great, now it is mediocre and dry. The portobella raviolis were also bland and lifeless now. Even the bread sticks lacked flavor! And those are the easiest things to make. Each time I see the ""new"" menu, the main thing they change are the prices! Why price pseudo- Italian food at gourmet prices? Another thing- they remodeled within the last year, replacing their old comfy padded chairs with hard wooden ones- just so you don't linger too long. ""When you're here, you're family""- they must not like theirs very much....
