Lots of good choices and also like how menu shows the calorie counts. Our server was very helpful in helping us decide what we wanted. He also provided an option of wine and even had a sample before purchasing. The endless amounts of salad and breads are always good too. Service was quick and very reasonably priced for a family...

I have never been disappointed with an Olive Garden.. Whatever I have ordered has been exceptional for a Italian chain restaurant even though in this city that was settled by the Italians there is a lot of competition. The pasta dishes have been great and it is a good place to go for lunch for the soup and salad and... More

Very attentive service, great food and plenty of it. The only negative was the touchscreen devices at each table and booth. Really took away from the dining experience. Other than that everything was fantastic.

We do not have an Olive garden in my area of Canada anymore so it is a treat to come to Watertown to eat at OG. My favorite is the Beef and Gorgonzola linguine...always so rich and delicious. Our server was friendly and fast. I really like the table ordering system for appetizers and dessert.
