Big portions

And tasty too. The menu has nicely changed since the last time we were there. The waitress was very attentive. The restaurant is deceptively large, don't let the full parking lot deceive you.

Olive Garden has provided consistently tasty meals in a lovely atmosphere at reasonable prices. The only downside to this location is the size of their parking lot - it is not adequate for the early evening crowd (5:30 - 8:00 pm).

We enjoy lunch at Olive Garden , but today's experience left us wondering. First our waitress was slow coming to the table for our order. My husband had the unlimited soup and salad, and I had the lunch duo. The food was good. While we were eating the manager came and asked how we were doing. We said we were... More

We were staying at The Hampton near by. Very tired after traveling so, we ordered take out. Not only was our food still hot they keep everything salad dressings, toppings and all the other goodies they pack for you separate. Good containers that don't spill. The food was very good. We would return again. Dine in or take out we... More

It's olive garden... I love it, stuffed mushrooms salad and wine what's not too like? People put the garden down but not me. The Saginaw location has excellent service and delicious food.
