It was a 25-seat luncheonette in Waycross, Ga., called The Green Frog and promised “Service with a Hop”. He went on to open the first Olive Garden in Orlando, Florida in 1982. Olive Garden continues to be the number one full-service Italian restaurant company in the country with more than 800 restaurants bringing Italian hospitality to hungry people around the world.

My wife and I went to Olive Garden last Friday evening in Harrisonburg After reading some of the reviews on the website, I was not sure what to expect so I timed the experience. And here's the results of our visit.
We arrived at 3:30 pm we were welcomed and taken to our table immediately and asked what we wanted to drink.
At 3:37 the server returned with our drinks. At that time we had decided what we wanted for dinner. At this point we ordered our food.
At 3 :45 the server returned with our soup and bread sticks. Which was delicious.
At 3:55 the server came with the main course which was delicious. The service was EXCELLENT! !!!! Also the server Was WONDERFUL !!!!!!

Be careful with the new computer terminals that have shown up at their restaurants. Games will show up, and without warning a $1.99 charge will be added to your bill if you play one.
If they want to charge for playing that's fine, but they should make it evident that there is a charge and how much it is.

One of my favorite places to eat. All-though the prices are god-awful.

If they had cheaper options I'd frequent the place.

cherished this business all of the twenty years living in Florida. Both Red Lobster and Olive Garden were outstanding facilities to dine.
