Will Olive Garden be open this Thanksgiving?

Olive Garden may not be the most Italian restaurant in the world, but you can’t deny that endless breadsticks are one of the best things that have ever happened to the world. But can you get your breadsticks, lasagna, or fettuccine alfredo on Thanksgiving this year?

Unfortunately, Olive Garden will not be open this year, so if you’re looking to satisfy your cravings for soup, salad, and breadsticks, you’ll have to pick up your food ahead of time. You can check with your local Olive Garden to see if individual ones are open, but most likely, they’re going to be closed.

If you were hoping to pick up your food versus making a huge meal, don’t worry. There are plenty of other restaurants open this Thanksgiving. Everything from T.G.I. Fridays to Popeyes to Bob Evans and Applebee’s will all be open this Nov 26. You have a pick of whatever you’re in the mood for.

Olive Garden is closed on Thanksgiving but will be open on Black Friday

If you’re really craving some Olive Garden, they will be open on Black Friday. They’ll be operating during their normal hours so check when you wit your local restaurant.

If you’re out shopping (maybe picking up some purchases using curbside pick-up) or if you need some sustenance after shopping online all day, Olive Garden will be there with some shrimp scampi, a plate of ravioli, or a slab of chocolate brownie lasagna. Yum!
