Family Dining at the Olive Garden in Harrisburg

Olive Garden in Harrisburg

The Olive Garden Italian Restaurant is a chain-style restaurant that you'll find across the United States. They're known for their casual dining, family atmosphere, and authentic Italian foods. Recently our family visited the one located at 5102 Jonestown Road in Harrisburg. 

If you plan on visiting...we do recommend that you try to visit during off-peak hours. This location gets extremely busy and often times we have to wait 40-60 minutes to be seated if we go during the weekend or weekday evenings when they're busy. This is especially true if there are 5 or more in your dining party.

Their menu offerings are vast offering all kinds of pasta dishes, soups, salads, appetizers, and desserts. They do offer a few items in the kid's section of the menu. Their portions are always generous in size. If you enjoy having alcohol with your meal...they offer alcoholic beverages too. 

As you can see from our photos...we had 12 people in our dining party with 4 of them being children. It took 45 minutes for us to get seated. Once we placed our orders it was another 40-45 minutes until our main meals hit the table. Like I said, if they're busy it will take awhile. If you're looking for quick, in and out dining...choose off-peak hours or a different restaurant.

Everything that we ordered was delicious. The hot foods were hot and the cold foods were cold. No mistakes were made on our large order at all. Our waitress was attentive and took care of all of our refills and needs in a timely manner. Gotta love great wait service! We showed our appreciation by letting a hefty tip for the great service.
