Our waitress was amazing! Andrea was on top of things and was friendly. The food was amazing. We were seated right away and got a nice long booth! Can't say enough about our waitress, she was wonderful! My drink tasted great, and the good was delicious!

The staff was great, but I just wasn't very impressed with the food. I ordered the cheese ravioli and it was just kind of bland. Just not a whole lot of taste to it. My son ordered pizza and he didn't like it. I tried it, and could understand why. It was overly doughy, and just had a rather strange... More

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
