Didn't have to wait long, we had 2 kids with us and we all were treated great. Food was terrific - wine available if you wanted it. We all had something different and it was all very good.

As a brand, Olive Garden has a place in Italian themed dining. However, this location is showing wear & tear on the bulding and a staff that needs a morale boost.. The staff is usually professional and helpful. From time to time, however, we get a server who forgets that without customers they don't have a job. Hopefully management has... More

Great service and food. Daughter has special diet needs and they brought out their gluten free menu and then let us keep it. The place is busy, but there is a good reason for that. A place I really like to go :)

If your hungry or trying to stretch your budget lunch here is a great deal at a great price, all you can eat on several fares! Food is very good and service is good also, Friday and Saturday are very busy all day and into the evening!

As usual, the service and food was excellent.... More

This Olive Garden delivers good food as always. Although I didn't order anything extraordinary, plain spaghetti with meatballs (well cooked), the plate was tasty and great for a freezing evening. But the espresso was awful, should get better coffee or a good machine to serve it. The place is usually packed so you need to make a reservation. The service... More

I like this place once in awhile even though it is a chain. (Which Saginaw mostly has). My favorite is just soup and salad with bread sticks. All the soups are pretty good.

The service is great and I always like to try the new foods. I like the wine samples and the way they describe the wines. The salad and bread sticks are wonderful.

Ordered food to go, got to the hotel and my pasta was cold and with little or no sauce on top. My salad was just ok, and had to get napkins and utensils at my hotel to eat the food. Very disappointed.
