As is becoming the norm, it was our waitress first night. You can just imagine the results. Charged us for the wrong wine. You have to watch these chain restaurants as they hound their employees to upsell all meals.

The four of us went out for our daughters birthday meal. We all liked our main courses, but the salad had too little dressing on it. It was like none at all and tasted like plain lettuce. We asked for more dressing on our second bowl, but it still was not very much. Server was very friendly and knowledgeable about... More

We have visited the Wausau Olive Garden twice, and I could not recommend you do the same. The food is heavily sauced, uninspired, and frankly a disappointment. Nothing fresh on the menu except the house salad.

Food and service awesome. Server was tentative to all are needs. It was my daughter and myself at the Olive Garden. We had to wait for our ride to pick us up. Server made sure we had drinks or whatever till we waited for our pickup. Top notch customer service.

We walked in on a Friday night at 6 expecting a wait as we usually get in Green Bay but were shocked to see a packed restaurant with many workers to greet us. We sat right down and had a great waiter as a matter of fact other waiters and waitresses tended to us also before we even asked. The... More

Our first impression of the place wasn't too pleasent. The waitress lectured us for not informing the hostess that we had an infant in need of a high chair, even though the infant was in clear clear view. It wasn't a nice conversation. She was clearly not happy to have to get a high chair. The meal was average/good. It... More

My wife has allergies. They were explained carefully and precisely. The kitchen manager even came to the table to ensure her food was prepared properly. As usual, they messed it up. Food arrived. Allergens were on the plate. She could not eat it. They gave us no credit. Although they offered to make something else, we declined the offer. They... More
