Celebratory Dinner At Olive Garden

It was past 8 pm when the graduation rites was finished.  We could have easily went out and eat but getting out of Duquesne parking garage was another story, it took forever.  We were stuck there for  almost 30 minutes trying to get out the campus.  We  were gonna  dine in to one of our favorite local restaurants but it was late already that we decided to  try the Olive Garden  in Robinson.

We have never  ate here before so we didn't know what to expect.  We thought that  they won't be packed because it was late but  they were full of  patrons when we got there.  The wait wasn't that long though and our server was really friendly.  She looked like she was tired  but she was still pleasant and helpful to us.  
The food was delicious, however, the portions are huge!  We had leftovers for the past couple of days in the fridge.  Surprisingly, the cost wasn't that much so we gave our  server a 20% tip for the great service she's rendered us.  Nothing beats  the feeling of happy customer when  the  establishment's employees are nice.

Katie, our server, even  offered to take our picture and she boxed the leftover food for us.  I wish all food servers are nice as hers.  Swipe over > to see all the photos below.

We have always enjoyed eating at Olive Garden. Doesn't matter if it is for lunch with soup and salad or dinner during the evening.

It's been years since I've gone to Olive Garden. I had forgotten how large the portions are and I really need to get back to our local spot.

I haven't been to Olive Garden in quite a while. My favorite was always the endless salad. And I always liked the breadsticks.

I like Olive Garden, their breadsticks are terrific. I've never seen an Olive Garden that wasn't fairly crowded.

We have not been to Olive Garden in quite a number of years. The food they have is delicious and I think we should go there again soon. It looks like you all enjoyed your time there.

I haven't been to Olive Garden in years. I used to work near one, and my husband and I would go during lunch. We may need to head over for some breadsticks soon!

Happy graduation! I haven't been to the olive garden in years. During my freshmen homecoming dance, we had a large group of kids go there before the dance.

The closest Olive Garden I have to me is the one in NYC so we always love going there when we're in the city. I am a huge fan of so many of their dishes.

Congratulations. We have not been to an Olive garden in years. It used to be one of my favorites. I need to get back there.

Olive Garden is always perfect for family get togethers. Good meal and funny thing those same kids that don't eat their veggies love that Olive Garden salad.
