Ironically, we didn't want to go sit in a restaurant for our anniversary, so I ordered the Chicken Alfredo and a grilled Chicken Parmigiana that contain spaghetti. I ordered an extra thing of salad unsure what size our salads would be in a carryout (we've always eaten in so there's a big bowl of salad on the table when you do). Turns out, the salads are in the same size container as the extra one you order so we could have not ordered the third bowl. The food was really good! I enjoyed the carryout and will likely do that again.

We had friends with us that visited Irondale. It was freezing cold with rain. We were looking for a place where there would be a lot of choices for home made soup. That’s when we decided to go to OG for their S and S unlimited! We were not disappointed! Great food!

While in Irondale to go to EWTN we had dinner at the Olive Garden and were not disappointed! I had Shrimp Scampi and my husband had the Spaghetti, both entrees were delicious, along with the fabulous salad! We had no wait for seating at 5:30 and the server was excellent and helpful.

Overall, the experience was decent, and as the title says, it was what you come to expect from most chain restaurants. I had the Stuffed Chicken Marsala which had really good flavor, but the garlic mashed potatoes it comes with were really just ok. It was also a very small portion of potatoes. If it wasn't for the salad and bread sticks, the meal would definitely not have been filling enough.

The atmosphere was just alright. The staff really needs to keep in mind that they are very close to the tables when at the computers, and customers can hear everything. It was a little bothersome hearing all of the gossip from the waitstaff while trying to talk with others and enjoy your meal.

Would eat there again, but wouldn't go out of my way.

Whenever we travel, we look for Olive Garden because we know we always get good service and great food. WRONG! This one is not up to the standards we expect of OG. We waited over 30 minutes for bland food. At least the bread sticks were good.
