Typical Old Spaghetti Factory Restaurant

No surprises - same no matter where you go. I took my 11 year old Grandson (his first time in an OSF Restaurant) and he LOVED the atmosphere and food.

Had to use navigation on our phone to find it, but glad we did. A Monday evening, not crowded. Got right in, parked in front of the door. Be sure to go past the detour signs! Very good server all thru the meal. Spaghetti with browned butter and mazithra cheese and lasagne. Delicious bread. A perfect low key complete meal!... More

I know we all have bad days. We have been coming here for 14 years. This had to be the most disappointed time coming here. Slow service, cold food.

The restaurant is enormous with chandeliers and a cable car and the ubiquitous booths to eat in. The service was good and the food tasty- can't say that it was anything memorable- except that, as is usual in restaurants in the US, there was far too much of it. Parking was quite limited

I had some time to kill and stopped here for lunch. It was nice to have bread and salad included in the lunch meal. I got the managers favorite that included 2 sauces. It was pretty good. The service was good too. My waitress was attentive and did a great job. I would go back here again for lunch.

We enjoyed a family dinner with our daughter, son-in-law, and our two grandchildren (ages 2 and 5) at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Tacoma, WA. We received quick seating, great service, and good-tasting meals. These restaurants are one of our favorites for special ocassions or just any ocassion, really!
