Visited this location again for lunch on a Sunday. Many families and couples awaiting a table when we arrived. The bar area has been redesigned recently but is still first come; first served. We located a booth with a patron departing and we took the emptied booth. We reviewed the menu, decided on salad and breadsticks for both for appetizer,... More

This is the first occasion that we had to use the on-line take-out ordering, and it seemed to work really well. We knew it would be crazy busy on a Friday night, (it was) and we didn't want to pack up all the kids and fight the crowds. Ordering on line was great! If there were options with the meal,... More

Our food arrived in a timely manner and the temperature was just right. The do-it-yourself pasta is wonderful, especially the angel hair pasta, five cheese marinara and Italian sausage. Nicole did a fabulous job! :)

Like always the soup and salad did the trick. The service was good for a busy night at Olive Garden. I was looking for a healthy dinner and this was the place for me.

It's Olive Garden. Predictable and edible. A safe choice when you're not sure about where or what you want to eat.

We have been to this Olive Garden several times through the years and never have failed to be impressed with the quality of the food, the wide variety on the menu, the reasonable prices, and the great wait staff. It is conveniently located and I have never had a bad meal at an Olive Garden.

Always love the breadsticks! We don't visit Olive Garden that often because the meals just don't have great flavor. The fun part of the meal is to to have the serving staff shred cheese over it all.

I've been to many different Olive Gardens in many different locations. The food is pretty consistently decent. This was my first time at this location. I was trying to stay on a pretty tight budget so we all got waters except for the one who ordered a kids meal because that one was included in the price. I ordered a... More
