I'm shocked by how many positive reviews there are for the Olive Garden because the food is flavorless, not fresh, certainly not "italian", and apparently I'm in the minority here given all the positive reviews. I got take-out last weekend as I received a gift card for my birthday and figured I'd give them one last try. My lone visit... More

Met my Goddaughter for lunch recently (haven't seen her in about six months) at the Olive Garden at the Loop in Methuen. What a wonderful lunch we had - HOT breadsticks, yummy salad and lasagna for her and angel hair pasta for me (with meat sauce). Everything was fantastic. Sadly, we did not have room enough for dessert - which... More

Came here with my mom. Decided to get the soup/entre' special. Did not care for most of the soups, though it was nice to try them all. Was interesting how the waitress brought our check while we were eating. She didn't ask if we wanted anything else i.e. more coffee, dessert. Was a little put out by that. She was... More

As always, a must stop in a trip to the USA. Good food for the money. Don't forget your doggie bag, almost allways leftovers. Beware the charges for the videogames on your table. Didn't know about the fees and we were suprise to see the extra on our bill, not that mush but still a surprise since no one bothered... More

We always look forward to spending a pleasant afternoon here. They place us in quite season,so we can be noisy. The wait staff are always so gracious to us. The meal is always hot and very quickly delivery.

My son and I went for lunch on a Sunday. He got unlimited soup, salad, and breadsticks and I ordered spaghetti with meat sauce along with soup and salad. My soup was not as good as usual (chicken with gnocchi). My son liked his ministrone. The meat sauce was really good with large pieces of meatball-like meat. Very substantial and... More

After a movie, we had several choices for our Sunday night dinner. We were pleasantly surprised as we entered, there was a 15 minute wait. The hostess asked us if we would sit in the bar, she had a booth so we accepted the table. Neither of us Seniors drink, but our waiter was super easy and brought us their... More
