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

We had supper there the other night, the food and service is always excellent. I had Chicken Parmigiana with pasta - a great serving and had to take the rest home. My husband had the shrimp scampi - said it was just what he needed.

It was very reliable. Service is good, facility is clean. The only thing I had a problem with is raising the price so high from lunch time to supper time on the same items. ( quantity) WHY ???????

Maybe I'm in the wrong, but with having Celiacs Disease when something says Gluten Free I'd like to believe its actually SAFE Gluten Free. Decided to stop by with my mom to try the GF pasta I had seen all over the web and TV commercials, the dish looked wonderful when it arrived to our table. Then I started to... More
