Love the salad. Good service and usual food. at an Olive Garden. The only problem with this restaurant is the parking. You cannot park anywhere else but there lot behind the restaurant and since the employees have to park there as well, it can fill up in a hurry.

I've been to this particular Olive Garden 5 or 6 times and every time I have not been let down. The service has been nothing short of amazing! Two servers that stand out the most to me are Brittany and Tyler. They are two very genuine, very friendly, very warm individuals and their service was prompt. The food as well... More

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!

Our whole family loves to eat at the Olive Garden. Living in Canada, they are few and far between so on our way home for Christmas, and having enjoyed Zehnders’s in Frankenmuth the night before, we jumped at the chance to do some shopping in Saginaw and eat at the Olive Garden. 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.
