Great Time

The Olive Garden is a chain with fine food fairly priced. My wife and I are good eaters but we found their portions to be too large. However, this did not seem to be an issue at the tables around us so maybe it's just us. The menu choices were great and the food very tasty. We'll be back.

The Olive Garden in Bangor is the best run food operations anywhere. It is always full and yet everyone receives the personal friendly service. We have never had any problem with our food or service lacking in any way. The food is excellent. Olive Garden in Bangor is a winner!

The server was nice, the food was fine, but it took forever -- from the time we were seated to get drinks, then salad/soup, was 30 minutes. Food order was another 25-30. Add 10 more minutes to process payment. For the price, wish I'd saved money. We got there with no wait on seating--2 other couples were seated after us... More

Had the tour of Italy combo. The pasta and lasagna were quite good, but the chicken parm was overcooked and dry.Salad and bread sticks were very good.

We ate supper at the OG and it was quite busy, but we were seated fairly quickly and the service was good and prompt. The Meatballs were very good.I would go there again.

After a large lunch, we were looking for a light dinner. We went in and were planning on having the soup and salad and calling it a night. Apparently in Maine, after 4pm, the price goes us a few dollars compared to some other states. We did have bigger meals, but took most of it with us. Maine does not... More

Our server was Jamie, we told her we were pressed for time. We placed our order and within minutes she brought our soup and salad to the table. We also ordered an appetizer which took longer to cook, but she brought it as soon as it was done. She packed up our leftovers and we got to our meeting a... More

This was a nice lunch and an opportunity to relax on a business trip. The service was quick and efficient and they didn't make me feel awkward for dining alone.

Olive Gardens are always good, good food, great service, always clean and great martinis! We live 50 miles from this restaurant; however, when we have to do shopping in Bangor we make it a point to have lunch or dinner.
