Olive Garden refuses to let customer fly American flag during awards ceremony
An Alabama Olive Garden denied an 80-year-old woman the right to hang an American flag during an awards ceremony in an attempt to "avoid disrupting the dining experience for all other guests. Google it up, this really happened. "VOTE WITH YOUR WALLETS FOLKS, THIS CORPORATION "DARDEN" HAS LOST ITS WAY.
Traditional dishes and all -you-can-eat salad, soup and bread sticks are the draw at this upscale-casual Italian restaurant. – In Short
Established in 1982, this chain gained a following for its laid-back atmosphere and generous portions. Patrons settle into comfortable booths and tables in dining rooms with plants, artwork and décor reminiscient of the villas in the Tuscan countryside. Starters include scampi, sausage or pepperoni pizza, and several soup choices, as well as a signature seafood dip (crab, shrimp, cheese and marinara). Entrees include classics like lasagna, fettuccine Alfredo and chicken parmigiana. There are also "Garden Fare" options, which promise 30 percent fewer calories.
Great Italian food for the money! – Great food selection and taste is great! Endless soup or salad. If you go when it is not crowded you get great service. They also will do food to go which helps on those Friday and Saturday nights when you don't want to takle the crowd. Simple take out pick up in the bar. Always have food ready to pick up and are very accomidating. I keep going back!
