I would have given them 5 stars--however they have a shortage of parking spaces at this facility, I have ordered take-out on a number of occasions and I have been unable to find a parking spot when I go to pick up my order. All spaces in the lot are filled including spaces reserved for Take-out Customers.

Good food with a variety of options, friendly staff. Busy restaurant and parking lot though....even for a mid-afternoon late lunch the place (especially the parking lot) was packed.

Olive Garden is the most amazing place to eat in Saginaw. The food choices are wonderful, we always choose the pasta meals as they are so so good! Wonderful surrounding, friendly staff and delicious food!

Can't go wrong with a chain restaurant. Olive Garden is pretty consistent. Our waitress Anna was very nice and checked on us regularly. Thank you!

Visited in for a late night meal for our anniversary (which we hadn't planned on celebrating). Our waiter made the night unforgettable. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and personable. His attention to detail was impeccable. The food, wine and evening were nothing but amazing. Highly recommend.

However I did order the sausage stuffed rigatoni which is a $3 upgrade and did not care for the taste or texture of the filling. The peach raspberry bellini tea is... More
