Okay, so it's not trying to be a gourmet restaurant. I dropped in to buy some food to take back to my hotel. The staff were friendly, the restaurant seemed nice inside, there were two dedicated stations to deal with take out food. The staff promptly took my order, brought me the food, all very professional. The food was really... More

When my husband returned to the room with our take-out I was more than pleasantly surprised. The food did not have the typical take-out issues. It was as fresh, hot and attractive as if it had been served on a plate hot from the kitchen. It was all there, in perfect shape and made the evening great. There was some... More

This place gets five stars all around! The service was superb, we had four other servers other then our original one take care of different things for us (drink refill, breadsticks refill, etc.). The manager definitely knows what she's doing. Great atmosphere, and the food was delicious and came our very promptly! I do agree with another review I read... More

Easily the best service I've ever had at an olive garden. Waitress was fast, friendly and helpful! Food arrived quickly and was fresh and delicious! I cannot wait to return here :)

Greeted at the door and shown in with a smile. Waiter was attentive, intelligent and professional. Food was better than expected for a restaurant chain and some thought was put into the menu. I would go there again.

Visited after reading other reviews whilst on a over night trip to Duluth, was not disappointed! Food and service is excellent and would recommend highly to all and would definitely return if I lived in the area, or the country for that matter!

The Olive Garden has never been a disappointment to us. We've always had good service, good food, and plenty of it. I love the minestrone soup and this is one place where I'm never afraid to try something different for my entree. My only complaint about The Olive Garden is how small the area is while you have to wait... More

My daughter and I were at the Duluth Olive Garden last week for their special - buy one meal take one home for free. That was the most generous "special" I've ever experienced any where. The waitress was more than happy to give us additional bread sticks and soup to take home. We're always treated very well every time we... More

We honestly couldn't wait to get here for lunch. We ended up with a fabulous waitress named Joanne who was so attentive and came out of no where to fill our salad, drinks, etc., she was very impressive. It was even a little busy but she moved like a "ninja" (my daughter's words). We have never had a bad meal... More

My family of five waited for 30 minutes in the lobby watching other groups that arrived after us be seated before us. We sat on the couch/chairs in the lobby and were treated to the odor of sewer gas coming from the nearby bathrooms. Once seated, we couldn't help but notice all of the empty tables scattered throughout the dining... More
