Memorial Day is typically the holiday of barbecues and picnics, but that doesn’t mean people aren’t going to restaurants like Olive Garden. And because people are having backyard barbecues, it might be a lot less busy. A bonus! And really, there is never a bad time for Olive Garden.
But is Olive Garden actually open on Monday, May 29, 2023? Luckily, they are! It is one of the holidays they are open. They are really only closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas and have reduced hours on Christmas Eve and the day before Thanksgiving.
Fortunately, since they are open, you don’t have to worry about that. Just make sure to check your local restaurant to see what their specific hours are.
Olive Garden also has a bunch of specials for Memorial Day weekend and for those who are graduating. If you don’t feel like cooking or are looking to get food for a graduation party, Olive Garden caters as well. And the catering menu is just as good as the normal one. It includes items like Chicken Alfredo, Lasagna Classico, and Five Cheese al Forno. And don’t forget to get your salad and breadsticks (the best part!).
Olive Garden is open on Memorial Day this year
If you’re not having a big gathering, the restaurant also offers meals you can take home and pop in the oven and most are only $6.
On top of that, if you’re looking for something to do for lunch on Memorial Day, Olive Garden offers a ton of options in-house and they start at only $8.99. They include things like Chicken Parmigiana, Shrimp Scampi, and the classic Soup, Salad, and Breadsticks lunch.
And for the love of all that is delicious, please do not forget dessert! The Black Tie Mousse Cake, Tiramisu, Strawberry Cream Cake, Chocolate Brownie Lasagna, Silician Cheesecake, and Warm Italian Doughnuts are all calling your name. Or at least they are certainly calling mine!
