Sometimes there is a wait to get seated. The service is good and the food more than decent. The wine portions are skimpy. I like the sausage and greens soup while my wife prefers the house salad. Unless you are ordering a special, the prices seem a bit high.

The food came back but was still not HOT. We accepted it this time and the waitress was kind enough to comp one... More

We visit Bangor routinely on business...often we will have a business meeting with two others...Olive Garden works perfectly for us. The service is superb...servers are always friendly and knowledgeable regarding the menu. We have never been rushed, but more importantly...the food is really good. I don't normally review chain restaurants...and I know Jay Leno joked incessantly about Olive Garden, when... More

I tried the new Northern Tour of Italy! YUMMY is all I have to say. I'm usually a light eater and always bring left overs and this time I almost didn't bring any back with me. Only a few bites since it was so delicious. The Rosato wine is my favorite and it was delicious of course. and the Tiramisu... More

We love the Olive Garden in Bangor and make a point of going there each time we are in the area. Our meal was great. Nicely paced. Server was attentive and very good at his job. Made the dining experience even more enjoyable.

If you like Olive Garden's formulaic menu and dining areas layout, you'll be happy here. I find Olive Garden cuisine salty, but I keep going back. Always seems busy, which is a good thing.

Have eaten at this Olive Garden a number of times over the years. The food is consistent and the staff are very friendly. I just can't give it better than average rating as the food is simply average Olive Garden fare which by the way is just fine as I am not expecting fine Italian dining at the OG. I... More
