Good food and service. You may have to wait for a table but it's worth it. We only had to wait 15 minutes for a table.

One of our favorite places for lunch or dinner is Olive Garden in Longview, TX. When we visited last week, the service was fast and efficient. We all enjoyed the salad and bread sticks along with our selected entrees. Always an enjoyable place to dine, with the clean rest rooms and friendly service.

I use to love this place now it's just a disappointment everyone I go. They have changed the preparation of items on the menu I have been getting for years and have gotten ridiculously stingy with the sauce.., particularly the chicken Marsala.

But that second salad doesn't show up at your table they are charging you for the salad that comes free with the entree. Then... More

Having left Fort Worth for Longview I had expected the same quality food. Wrong. The service and ambiance was excellent. There were four of us, each having something different. The salad was chilled, fresh and good. I had salmon that I had ordered medium to medium rare. It arrived overdone and for the money it was not good. Mikey had... More

Me and my son went to the restaurant, they were nearly empty but still they took 15 to 20 minutes for our drinks to come out. The service is not good and the food is worst.
