    Very nice location. Good for large groups. Avoid holidays if you can, because they don't accept reservations...i.e. Mothers Day, otherwise get there early. I believe we got there at 11:30 and it was fine.

    A great date night....One of these days I am just going to order the stuffed mushrooms and salad.....that's it. But everything is so delicious. The atmosphere is good for couples, families and groups and the service is always friendly.

    Booring pasta with tasteless sauces. WHile marketed as italian, it's just really bland food. Sure, free breadsticks and refills, but we need something to stimulate the tastebuds too...

    I like the bottomless salad bowl here, but compared to the many Italian restaurants out there, Olive Garden is just okay. There are better choices out there.

    Its okay when there are people in your lunch group that don't like seafood or Asian food. It is pretty bland.

    This resturant is great to either bring the whole family just for brunch or even a nice dinner out for a celebration. Pros: Lots of food for your money and great service. Can dress up or dress casual and will still feel comfortable. Cons: Quality of food isnt very high

    You get what you pay for...

    ...but at least you get a lot of it. The food here is average but is very cheap and if your a quantity over quality person, it doesn't get much better than this unless you go to a buffet. Drinks aren't bad, they make some fun and fruity Sangrias. Service was bad... It a more comical moment I had there, my to go box was knocked out of my hands by my date, and the contents spilled on to the floor, right in the middle of the main walk way to the left hand side of the restaurant. I felt bad, so I started to clean it up, and actually went through about a 5 minute, thorough, cleaning with out any one of the hostesses or wait staff even offering to help. It was rather amusing.

    This Olive Garden is one of my favorites--spacious, and with excellent service! The breadsticks are great, and so is the Stuffed Chicken Marsala! :) Love it!

    The salad and soup is good. The bread sucks! The pasta dishes are okay. We go here if we want inexpensive Italian. I personally prefer Oggi's taste if you're looking for inexpensive pasta.

    Bad Food

    After I ate there one night, I went home and was sicker than I had ever been. I know it was the food and I THINK I got something slipped in my food because I was the only one who was sick in my group. I guess if you are going to eat there you better not complain about the service, because they will get you back.

    Food was great, I enjoy their soups, salad and breadsticks. My favor is the italian sausage and potatoes soup. Dex our waiter was cheerful. He made our day with his humor.

    If you go on a crowded friday night, the service is slow, but if you can get it on an off-night, is a great atmosphere, and GREAT food!

    Not authentic Italian
    sddave99 (20 reviews)
    10/29/2006

    Ambiance and service is good, but the food is not very good, just barely average. The several times I 've gone, have been disappointed in the flavor of the food - not like real good home made Italian food.
