I ordered the Tilapia Piccata. In addition to the always fresh salad and breadsticks, this entree was a winner. The fish was perfectly cooked and the sauce was gentle with a little bite from the capers. It was served very hot and as the plate itself was heated, it retained the heat until the last bite. It was served with... More

Went for dinner. Enjoyed the buy one take one special going on right now. We were really impressed with the service we received. Waiter had said it was his first day. For being his first day he did really well. Will come back again when we are in the area.

This location did an outstanding job. This was our first time at this location. Food and service was outstanding! Would recommend the zuppa soup! Got in fast and no wait on a Saturday afternoon. Nice big seating area.

What happened Olive Garden? The food we had at this Olive Garden was very mediocre. When I am paying $18+ for a pasta entree I expect some amazing flavors and that was certainly not the case with my Shrimp Scampi, it was pretty tasteless! The salad was overdressed and pretty disgusting! The general consensus with most of the people in... More

This was probably the best Olive Garden restaurant that my family and I have ever visited. Our server was awesome and our food was delicious. We arrived at the restaurant about 75 minutes before closing and was fearful that the food would be old. Not the case! The food was served hot and amd tated delicious!

My daughter and I wanted Italian on our weekend away. We ended up here after trying other ridiculously busy places (1.5 hour wait for TWO?!). We were happy we ended up here. We had a great server and an excellent meal.

We stopped in on a Friday at 5:30pm and there was a long line in the lobby. The wait was only 15 minutes so we decided not to leave. The location is excellent, right by the intersection of I-35 and I-494. The restaurant is huge for an Olive Garden. Our waiter was Nate and he did a great job. The... More
