We had lunch at Olive Garden on Saturday. They did the pandemic protocols very well. They had a sign on the door. If you have a cold or fever, don’t come in. The sign also said they were operating at 35% occupancy. It wasn’t crowded....We got a table right away. They have an iPad sized console that you could use for ordering and gaming. They had paper menus, which I assume are single use menus. We gave our server our order. We did the soup, salad and breadsticks combo. It was $9.99. Weekday it’s $7.99 at lunch. The salad was cold as always. Ice cold. Good tomatoes, peppers and dressing. We each had a bowl of the Tuscan soup and the chicken & gnocchi soup. Both were pretty good. Our server also bought a basket of their breadsticks. Those are usually pretty good, but they are usually saltier, buttery and hotter. They weren’t this time. Are there negatives? Not really. It’s a good option for casual dining. We were happy with our lunch. We would come back.More

Olive Garden is always a choice for an Italian night. Big meatballs, good pasta and range of 5$ drinks. It is also competing with many other restaurants within 2-3 miles. So its turn comes in a while. Pricing at this place can be tricky for...the cautious customer. I never thought 2 dishes with 2 drinks would exceed $50 bucks at Olive Garden. Call it Trump affect. Still it is not too bad of a deal as most mid-range restaurants around this town are getting smarter about pricing.More

Unlimited soup and salad is the way to go! What a deal, the soup was very tasty especially the pasta e fagioli and zuppa toscana a nice salad with a light dressing. I would not order regular food there only soup and salad como..very filling.

I have no complaints about the food. Our shrimp scampi was great and seafood Alfredo was ok. I also don't mind a little wait time between an appetizer and a meal - gave us time to talk, which was the main point of the meeting...anyway. However, long stretches of time between the meal and a desert and even a longer one between desert and the bill, were disappointing. Even more so, since the restaurant was half empty by then.More

Lunch specials are many and varied and very reasonably priced. Only unreasonable price was for ice tea at $2.95 with free refills. Service was very good and bread/rolls, salad and meal was very prompt, hot and very good portion and taste. Plenty of parking. Coupons...can be found sometimes in Sunday paper. Sign up for email and they will send coupons regularly. Will certainly go back.More

We had lunch at the Olive Garden in the Bridgewater area recently. We ordered the soup, salad and breadsticks combination, which runs about $9.00. It's a satisfying lunch, since there's a choice of four soups and all the components are unlimited. As usual, it was...good. Are there negatives? There was a wait for a table, although the main room was about 75% empty. Service was on the slow side. They probably didn't have enough staff that day. Overall it was fine.More

The restaurant was not very full, but it still took some time for our server to come to our table. We ordered drinks and they were not delivered when she was back for our order. We asked for our drinks first. The salad and breadsticks...are good; the main courses are just average. We were still eating te salad when the main courses were delivered and some were not that hot. I have learned in many restaurants to ask the server to delay the entrees so you can enjoy salad and bread, but forgot this time. Not sure why restaurants do this especially on a week night and not full. The chicken parm looked awful on the plate; the person eating said it was OK. One dish has shrimp and the shrimp was so small it was just not that good. The pasta was cooked just right though. Someone at our table had lasagna and said it was a bit cold and not that great. It is a good value for the money, just wish the quality was a bit better.More
