Night before the race want pasta. The food met all of our expectations. The salad and bread sticks were perfect. We had very good service. No waiting today, was very nice.

A typical Olive Garden. Very busy business on a Friday evening. Food was predictable. Service was acceptable. Prices reasonable.

Not bad. The chicken a little over cooked on mile. My son in law had chicken alfredo and his was moist. Chicken Gnochi soup not too bad.

To start off, the front staff needs some work. No greeting, no anything. We had to go up and then wait for them to finally answer us to give us the buzzer. The young gentleman seating us was ok. But to the girl running the...More

I go here only when other people want to, and the experience is the same all over the country. A beautiful bar and cafe area, and food that could be out of a microwave. This would be the last place I would take someone to...More
