I don't really like the olive garden. It seems over priced and artificial for what you get, which is some pretty bland crap. The building here was once "The Landing" which has nothing to do with the olive garden, but might inspire enough nostalgia to the locals who are old enough to remember it to buy this rubbish.

Lets start by saying I've only given a very few negative reviews, I realize we are human beings and sometimes we all have an off day.

We had not been to The Olive Garden in a few years. It was a very nice surprise to find that this Olive Garden was newly renovated. Our server was very polite and professional. The food was much better than I remembered. I had the soup and salad. The Chicken Gnocchi soup was delicious. We will be back!

My boyfriend and I were seated immediately to a clean table, and our waitress got our drinks almost immediately and offered a wine sample as well. The service was spectacular and the food came quickly. Some of the best pasta I've had in quite a while. Would 10/10 recommend

Fresh, never-ending salad is delicious and crisp. The atmosphere is clean, the colors of decor are very pretty. Light from the windows brighten the rooms. All the food choices are delightful and quite tasty.
