This Olive Garden is very similar to all of the restaurants in the chain. Food was consistent to what's we've had at other Olive Gardens. Prices have gone up. Most entrees were $15 or more.

My wife and I had lunch here while our daughter had a scholarship interview at MSU. We were able to split a special (Chicken & Shrip Carbonara). It was a little cheaper plus we are loosing weight. It was very clean, server was excellent, and great food.

I stopped here after a very long day at work. I couldn't decide what sounded good so I ordered Appatizers. The first one was a chicken ravioli dish and I didn't really care for it but it was prepared well. The other was calimari. The calimari took over 20 minutes to get which was red flag 1. When it got... More

We do like Olive Garden but have decided for the price it's just not worth it. The last visit we each ordered a beer. Even though it was a specialty beer I am pretty sure we could have bought a 12 pack for the price we paid. Beyond that the food is good and the service has always been very... More

Commercial chain "Italian" restaurant featuring lots of refined carbs in the bread and pasta slathered in sweet pasta sauce. Not worthy of the name "Italian" if they claim as such. However, great for eaters who don't know any better.

We had never been to an Olive Garden before so we decided to try this one. I just don't see anything special about it. We have such a wide variety of restaurants in Mankato I would just consider going to another Italian place. I just can't find anything special about this place. There are probably 15 to 20 restaurants in... More

Excellent food, service, .. We'd joined the Olive Garden online club.. Baymont's printer wasn't working and there's no wifi to produce a coupon, sad, especially since we'd extensively reported that to the both Darden group and Redlobster since 2012! Our visit went better than the first three visits since 2007- Within -40 seconds, they'd disposed of my take-home, left white... More
