Olive Garden, everyone's familiar favorite for Italian food, is one of Branson's most popular eateries!  Locals and visitors alike will tell you that there's something special about Branson's Olive Garden, and it's likely the exceptional customer service that comes from being in the friendly Ozark Mountain area.  But it's the food, of course, that brings folks time and again, including the always popular and plentiful soup, salad, and breadsticks!  Their delicious soup is made from scratch every morning, and tastes wonderful when paired with salad, breadsticks, and one of Olive Garden's many flavorful pastas.  Mid-day brings the Create-Your-Own-Lunch specials, and you can Create-Your-Own-Pasta bowl any time of day.  Pastas include options like angel hair, spaghetti, and gluten-free rotini, and there's a nice selection of sauces and toppings, like Traditional Marinara, Parmesan Pesto, Meatballs, and Sauteed Shrimp.  Everyone loves the shareable appetizers including the Fried Mozzarella and the Stuffed Mushrooms.  Tastes of the Mediterranean dishes include Shrimp Scampi, Herb-Grilled Salmon, and Ravioli di Portobello.  And you can't forget dessert!  You're sure to love their Tiramisu, or the decadent Black Tie Mousse Cake.  Olive Garden features a full bar, including an impressive wine list, as well as specialty coffees and handcrafted chilled beverages. While you're away, spending time in Branson, now you know you can dine just like you do back home, at your favorite place for Italian food -- Olive Garden!

"Not in my standards"
Rating of 2.5 stars

I’m just now getting on here to write me review after going to an Olive Garden where I’m actually from. I took a trip to Branson about three weeks ago and when we came in it looked very pleasant but once we got our food the breadsticks were hard, the salad was wilted, and the food was dry and noodles were hard. I love Olive Garden but this one was not doing a very good job of serving fresh food. I’ve always gone to OG and gotten a nice green salad and fresh breadsticks and the food has always been amazing but this Olive Garden needs to work on their food a little more.

I never review restaurants. This was ridiculous. I've been a bartender and a server...I understand the challenges. Literally they had like 15 tables, we sat at the bar. It took 10 minutes to see a bartender....10 more minutes to get bread....10 more minutes for salad...and 20 more minutes for food. The staff (and manager) congregated at the drink disbursement center to talk about tailgating...but...customer service was not on the to do list. It was pretty crazy. Won't be back

"Not the same since menu changes"

Our family drives from Arkansas to dine at OG in Branson Missouri. We don't know what has happened but a menu change has taken away so many of our favorite foods we had a hard time finding something to replace with. We just visited once again yesterday Feb 5th for lunch. Even the salad dressing seamed different. Our waiter did a great job hardly anyone was there but we were again told they no longer sold our favorite drinks. I hope this change is only for this OG not all of them! Looking at the reviews not many are recent. Maybe that's why the score is so high. I would have to vote a 2 out of 10. So disappointed in this menu change!!

I was with a group of 16 for dinner before attending a show. We called ahead for reservations, was seated promptly, and served promptly by a very friendly young man. Based on a bad experience the night before, we were especially appreciative of such good service. Excellent food and service..would highly recommend to everyone!

We live in Arkansas, and we drive to Branson MO just to eat at the Olive Garden. We love their food. The price is right and the food is excellent. We love the Olive Garden.

--And, that's saying alot! Before Olive Garden in Branson, my husband's favorite eating place was "home". I'm sure we'll go again when we vacation in March, but I'm sorry to not see a discount coupon in the Branson's Premium Coupon Book. Sincerely, E.Kimbro Last Visit: Actually Oct.2010, but your would not allow.

One of the best restaurants in Branson. The line waiting outside to get in is there for a reason. Excellent quality. Huge portions. Just a great value.

"One of the most consistant in quality Restaurants in Branson"
Rating of 4 stars
Reviewed on October 14, 2006
Over the last 5 years the Branson Olive Garden has been one of the few restaurants to be consistant in food quality and service. In 5 years we have had only 1 poor server and they were new and not familiar with the restaurant business. We are regulars at the Branson Olive Garden where it does feel like family.

"Best Italian in Branson"
Rating of 4 stars
Reviewed on July 2, 2006
Of course, we have eaten here many times. We've also eaten at many Olive Gardens around the country in addition to many other Italian eateries. This review is pretty simple. It may be a chain restaurant, but it is the best Italian restaurant in Branson. Others charging twice as much are only half as good. Good wine list, good entrees, great salad, good desserts. Service is uniformly good...which is hard to pull off in Branson. Atmosphere is as good as any of the so-called "fine dining" places in Branson unless you are unlucky enough to be seated next to family with raucous children. The biggest draw-back to Olive Garden in Branson is also a testament to their quality: the place is busy and you might have to wait.
