I remember watching The Bachlor TV show a couple of years ago (yes, I'll admit it) when Andrew Firestone (the tire family) was wooing a young lady over a candelit dinner. He asked her about her favorite restaurant. She responded that it was Olive Garden. Disgusted, Andrew proceded to ridicule Olive Garden on that and subsequent episodes.

OK, so Olive Garden isn't for everyone. But, there are some darn fine eats in that place. So, let's see why it's so popular.

SALAD + BREAD = Happy Customers

Somehow OG has convinced us that we're getting the bread and salad for free. Reality is, that $10+ price tag on each entree more than pays for it. However, the salad sure does taste better when it's free!

OK, the salad is really quite good, but the breadsticks need some help. (i.e. fresher, warmer and more flavorful)

The entrees are good. I'm sad that they got rid of the canneloni but the entire line-up is good. I guess those chefs they have at the school over in Tuscany are cooking up some good stuff.

The desserts are OK but not spectacular. They've actually gone downhill over the past 20 years in the dessert category. They used to have a spectacular cheesecake with a hard chocolate top. Oh, it was soooo good. I'm sad that it was yanked off the menu.

They're 4 stars for me only on price. Of course, all restaurants have shot up in price recently. Gougers! :-)

PROS: Consistently good food.
CONS: Price. Bread needs help. Better desserts.

This Olive Garden is one of the best Italian restaurants in the area. The food is always fresh and made to perfection. The staff is very courteous and helpful. Don't forget the dipping sauces for your breadsticks.
