    Oh, Olive Garden, how do I rate thee?

    Oh, Olive Garden, the super generic chain of Italian food eateries - how do I rate thee? Let me count the stars: Pros and pluses quick entrance and seating not so bad fare, knowing full well this will never be as good as a real Italian meal or something I can make at home. better food at this olive garden food was evenly flavorful, pasta al dente, etc. value...bottomless salad, soup and breadsticks. friendly and attentative wait staff as well the quickness of our food plentiful parking affordable cheaper prices Cons and negatives slowness of service when it came to picking up the bill (felt like we were forgotten - took way longer to pay the bill than to eat what we ordered) lower quality/quantity parts of the meal (such as the salad, main dishes) terrible seating (such as cramming big people into the booths with over sized tables can be accommodated from the time you begin to seat your guests without having to be asked)

    It is a great place to have a social lunch. Price is right at that time. Dinner can be expensive. Enjoy the service and the food.

    Best breadsticks in town

    The food is always good when we come here, however, the service can be hit or miss. Prices are fair for the amount of food. If you have never been here, you sould try the 4 cheese pasta with meatballs. I love the fact that it comes with endless salad and breadsticks. Those are a meal by themselves.

    The most unreal service ever! The host was rude and never put on a smile. The servers were dumb and clueless about what they were doing. They got our order wrong not only once but twice. Any when they finaly get it right, the meat was over cooked and dry to the point where it was not possable to eat at all. Now we know which location dose all the training for the rest of this city.

    I like this place, especially during September when they have their bottomless pasta bowls. For about 10 bucks, you can have an all you can eat pasta meal.

    I would not come back here for Italian food. The service was good but the food was boring and 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
