The salad and bred are to die for! The food here is always great and the service is kind! The wait times can be long, but it's worth it!

With chain restaurants, you come to have a certain expectation in terms of quality from all of the restaurants in that chain. That said, and as we all know, sometimes the quality can vary and can be lacking from one particular restaurant in a chain to another. Fortunately, Minot's Olive Garden is a really good one. We've never had a... More

We had a decent meal at the Olive Garden. It was close to our hotel and it was a busy place. Our server was quick and very friendly. The food was good. Our issue was that there were iPads at the tables and you can order from them or play a trivia game on them. They don't tell you that... More

Went here and it was disgusting. I will not return to this location ever again. The pasta was not cooked fully and the soup had something hard like a bone in it. Salad didn't have enough dressing. Like I said, won't be returning. Such a disappointment.

Our visit to Olive Garden was on our list of must eat places in Minot and we were not disappointed. From the wine sampling to the soup & salad to the entrees everything was first rate. We left the restaurant without having dessert as there was no room for dessert, lol. A definite must stop & enjoy the next time... More

I was a lil displeased with the service we are always stuck waiting hours it feels like when we order our food, the staff is friendly most of the time, but price wise I don't recommend this place to anyone. Of ur gonna pay this price might as well go to 10 north main.

Service great which made up for some not so great food! Caesar salad was disgusting, the dressing was the worst I have ever tasted in my life, when we told staff they said they have had numerous complaints and it is a new dressing from corporate office. Not sure why if you are getting numerous complaints you continue to serve... More
