Popular Bangor stop

Typical Olive Garden food and wait. This is probably the most popular Bangor chain restaurant and around dinner time the wait can be over an hour. Staff is friendly and the food is always good. No complaints if you can get a short wait. I typically wait until around 7 PM when the line is shorter.

Easy ordering on phone or internet. Takeout ready in 15 or 20 minutes. Best soups are the Tuscan (Italian Sausage and Kale) and the Chicken (taste like chicken pot pie) Yummmm.

My husband and I had dinner here on our recent stay in the area. As usual everything was top notch. A big shout out to our server Erica who did a great job. We loved her. Our meal was great as well.

Olive garden is olive garden- dependable americanized italian food but what sets bangors apart is great managememt. We had a less then happy experience with a waiter, enough so that I talked to management about it, and they went above and beyond to rectify the situation. Other then that one time bad wait experience every other time has been great... More

Some Canadians come for the shopping, we come for Olive Garden. And the shopping. We arrived early on a Monday for dinner and had no trouble getting a table. Our server was friendly and very efficient and quick. We both chose the Taste of Italy plates, and I think we enjoyed every bite. Loved the salad for starters, and the... More

We both had spaghetti and primavera; my husband had sausage with it and I had chicken. We both rated our meals as good, not great. The chicken was overcooked, not unusual and I still ate most of it. We had an appetizer soup - a tomato based pasta soup and it was very good. There is a hearty amount of... More

Flash frozen, microwaved and dry. Usually in happy to spread cheer in this venue but the Olive Garden is a poor example of "Italian" food.

Not the greatest Italian food in town but the prices is good, the service is excellent, the food is always fresh and well prepared. It is still Olive Garden so as long as you go knowing what to expect, you won't be disappointed. I understand this is one of the busiest Olive Gardens in the country so they do what... More
