We cashed in on the Veteran's Day Freebies with a free dinner for veterans and a 10% discount off for veterans' families at Olive Garden (active duty military get 10% off all month of November here). I ordered the most expensive entree on the "special menu" which was the Seafood Alfredo (normally $15.99, mine was $0 for being a vet). What an excellent value and way to show how proud this restaurant is of our nation's veterans and their families! We found no other place that honored the families. This was why we chose to eat here, and why we waited 50 minutes to be seated on a cold November evening.
The Seafood Alfredo dish was a pasta with a few pieces of shrimp and lots more pieces of scallops drenched in a creamy Alfredo sauce. It was so-so. Nothing I'd order on a usual outing to this establishment, but I gave it a try since there wasn't much of a selection from the "special menu". This was washed down with a Corona beer ($4.99). What we did find to be quite good, though, was the new Spicy Calamari ($9.29 before discount).
