A group of seven went to this restaurant for a business dinner after a long day of meetings. A few had been to other locations when they were much younger and had high hopes. This was by far the worst restaurant experience I've had in many years. When we walked the musty smell smacked us in the face. The hostess... More

Food was as good as always. I did branch out to the Garlic Shrimp and Fettuccine which was very good. Others at the table had good food as well. Cody our server was lacking. Bread didn't come until our entrées arrived, salads were slow and drink glasses perpetually empty. Coffee never did arrive.

We were seated immediately upon entering. Our server was very attentive to our needs. Drinks arrived very quickly. Our orders were place and delivered hot and beautifully presented. All our entrees were very good. Impeccable service in a relaxed atmosphere.

Our experience yesterday - August 3rd - was most unpleasant. The restaurant, during a sold out soccer game at US Bank Stadium, decided to under staff their restaurant. This was consciously done. We were seated immediately and then ignored for about 20 minutes. Then the server spilled water on us, but did take our order. The cooks obviously were overwhelmed... More

This Old Spaghetti Factory has a wonderful atmosphere, the food is wonderful for a chain type restaurant and the price is definitely right. Bring your whole family, you won't be dissatisfied.

If you're attending an event at the USBank Stadium or the Guthrie theater, you have an excellent supper spot only two blocks away! The Old Spaghetti Factory is decorated in a quasi-churchy manner with stained glass and heavey woodwork and pendant lighting and it's rather entertaining to see. Menu is nicely vaired and I've never met a meal I didn't... More

Very busy, but we were seated within 10 minutes. Food was very good. Service was great. Prices were well within reason. Would definitely recommend it and will go again.

Our first time there. Love the building and decorations. But then we got the pasta. Overcooked and limp pasta. Bland sauce. Every grocery store in town has better sausage than theirs. Not worth the trip downtown.

Pretty good meal but not spectacular. The food came out a bit on the cold side. Service was quick but we also felt a bit rushed. Entrees brought while salad plates were still on the table and not quite finished. Same thing with dessert. Not sure what the rush was about because they weren't too busy. A small booth for... More
