There are 2 types of people in this world: Olive Garden lovers, and Olive Garden "strongly dislikers". I am of the strongly dislike variety, though I have friends that love it. The last time I went, it wasn't crowded, but we still had to wait about 30 minutes to be seated. The salad was downright gross--wilted lettuce dowsed in oily dressing. We sent it back, but the new we got wasn't any better. The breadsticks were ok, but they weren't terribly generous at refilling the bread basket. Our meal was ok, but very pricey for what we got. I can make Pasta Roni at home and add some chicken, and it taste just as good as their chicken alfredo. And I can serve myself a lot better than the service we received! I think it's definitely overrated, and I try to avoid it if possible.
