Nothing stands out as unusually bad or good at this location, so it's worth a visit if you like Olive Garden fare. Seating, service & food was good. Tried a "special" cheesecake for dessert. It was good, but I wish they had the old-style they used to carry. Instead of a chocolate "icing", this one basically had chocolate syrup poured... More

Some folks in my office ordered and I did the honors. We had a total of four separate orders which I insist on ringing up separately to avoid confusion (you know how it can be). Anyway, I called in the order and Kelly (I think) took the order patiently and gave me the individual amounts. Said everything would be ready... More

Service was good (not great ) and food was good (not great). The salad was mostly huge hunks of lettuce core. Breadsticks were okay but a little limp. Good meal but don't come expecting top Olive Garden quality.

I recently visited this Olive Garden for Lunch. I love Olive Garden, but sadly the area around this one is declining. There are homeless people on every corner, thugs are running around everywhere. The food is decent, but this building is getting old, it has been there nearly 20 years and is in need of restoration. I love the salad... More

Ok where do I start???? ..... It took more than 5 minutes before a server came to our table.... no big deal right? Well when Alexis finally greeted us she gave us some brown colored water that was suppose to be "sweet tea".... Still no big deal well it took another 5 minutes before she even came back in order...

On our way into the restaurant there was a couple who brought a little dog under their arm inside the facility. This was not a service dog. We almost didn't go into the restaurant however we decided to and the food was excellent. As long as we were able to get a table far away from the dog and family... More

This was a very busy olive garden which is good because it means their food is usually fresher...great salad, breadsticks, 5 stars for this olive garden based on others I've been to...

Hit or miss...sometimes it's better than other times. Atleast to me. It's not always the best, entries are a little pricey for compared to portion. Salad is the best thing I think

Made a reservation at this OG to have a family memorial service dinner. Two days before the dinner I called to confirm everything was in order. I was told it was. When we arrived that night I was told that OG does not take reservations. I asked for the GM who advised me "the reservation wasn't in the book". We... More

We've eaten there for lunch as well as dinner and have never had a bad experience. The wait staff have always been pleasant and our food is served timely. We've also eaten there for birthdays and you get a free dessert.

Thank Cheryl Z
