The food is what you would expect and the location keeps it very, very busy. For the money, I believe lunch is the best bet.

Always busy, and always friendly and helpful. Best Italian in Bangor. Comfortable, unhurried, not as noisy as one might fear from the bustle.

Last time I was there March 2014 the food was good. This Olive Garden is always very busy as it is located within walking distance of the Malls.

Like the others in this chain, the food, service and prices are above reproach. Flavour beyond comparison in a perfect environment.

The service is good and the place is packed most evenings. The food and atmosphere are not unlike just about any other Olive Garden but it stands out in this location.

Mid afternoon visit while on the road. Seated quickly, orders came so fast we had barely started our salad, which was great to get back travelling again. We had not visited an Olive Garden for a long time. The bread fingers were rather dry and salty, not as good as I remembered. Salad was ok but not great. The main... More

I went to an Olive Garden once before, maybe 15 years ago, and memories were good. We tried last year when we passed through Bangor, but the wait was going to be long, so we went elsewhere. Finally, this year, we made it to the Olive Garden. I ordered the Five Cheese Ziti Al Forno. Because the menu said, "Ziti... More

Solid every time, I have never had a bad dish, I wish we had a small homemade family style Italian restaurant in town, but c'est la vie. Olive Garden is comfortable, service is very good, and meals are consistent. Comparable prices- just know that this is one of the most popular restaurants in the area- 9 times out of 10... More

We get to Bangor 3--4 times a year as a weekend getaway. We always go to Olive Garden at least once during our weekend. Great food, great atmosphere, and always a friendly wait staff!
