The food and service here was good. The food is regular chain type meals. This is not the true authentic style Italian rest. There is usually a long wait. We get takeout and dine in from this location. Never any issues.

We went for the commercial that shows their Lasagna endless meal. Im glad that I asked about the pork in the meat sauce. We are Muslim and the meat sauce is beef and Italian pork sausage, so that was disappointing. But overall we were pleased with the substitutes offered by Ashley our server. She went above and beyond to make... More

When they have national specials, I am there. I don't know if their food is frozen or what, but it turns out fairly good. All Olive Gardens are NOT created equal. The last server I had was a good one--she checked the right amount of times, kept chattiness to a minimum and could read me as to whether I wanted... More

More than just your average chain restaurant. Above average food which is very consistent. Friendly and attentive service. Great value

Hostess was less than friendly. Breadsticks were more stick than bread. Chicken Alfredo was okay but lacked flavorful sauce. Very Nice waitstaff however. Go to Red Lobster next door. Better Chicken Alfredo by far.

Went there with family and friends. After waiting for an hour to setup the table, finally table was arranged. Whole restaurant was empty - but the table was setup very close to other groups of guests. Other groups chairs and hands were crashing into each other. After 20 minutes server came to get order for drinks, and was playing disk... More

My wife and I have recently been to two Olive Gardens for the first time. We went to the Lancaster one and to the one in Christiana and enjoyed both because we had drinks and food at the bar PLUS we played trivia games on the mini tablets offered at the bar and we were determined to revisit again. Tonight... More

The food, when it arrived, was awesome, but we were seated for 15 mins before anyone came to serve us, or even bring any water. Appreciate they had a large party to deal with (and it was a Sunday evening), but we were feeling rather neglected by the time someone actually came to serve us. Pretty chilly sitting by the...

Went here for an evening out. Food was great, but our waitress had a miserable attitude from the start. Will definitely go back again.

we went for a birthday dinner with another couple, three ordered the cod inner and I had whole wheat pasta and meat sauce. The fish was presented falling apart and half the regular size. The waitress was embarrassed to serve but was told to serve the dish. I complained and the manager came over and stated he would take one... More
