The Best Crab Cakes in the WORLD.
Crab Cakes Baby!
I went to this resteraunt and ordered a crab cake. The waitress goes, " Would you like a one or two crabcake entre?" Remembering that most resteraunts have kind of "skimpy" portions, I said "...two..."
WOW! When my entre showed up, there were two of the biggest crabcakes I have ever seen. They were both bigger than my fist (and I have big hands). I was amazed. I was even more amazed when I bit into these babies. I was in heaven!
Solid Italian Food..
This place is a decent italian restauarnt and there are not many in this part of town. Their red sauce dishes are better than their white sauce dishes. Portion size is good. Parking can be tight as it shares the lot with the hotel to which it is attached.
Much better than Olive Garden. Not as good as Carrabba's or Macaroni Grill, but solid.
I've been to the Olive Branch several times with co-workers at lunchtime. The restaurant is dingy and the bathrooms are horrible. The food is nothing to write home about - you'd do just as well going to a chain like Olive Garden.
You have got to get the crabcake!! The atmosphere is great, however I did not like sitting in the booth along th back window. The waitress were great and the only other thing I did not like.... I needed a spoon and when I asked a waitress for it, she would not bring it and told my waitress to bring it. Other that that, my experience was great
Reminds me of the Olive Garden.
I went here the other night- it is connected to a Hotel and is right off 695.
They start you out with the huge salad bowls just like Olive Garden and this great bread that is a mix between a stick and roll. The bread had a wonderful garlic butter flavor and was very strong (but not overbearing). You could just have a dinner of salad and bread and be content!
The portions are monstrous with very fair prices. A few of us got the Spaghetti Carbonara. The sauce was very thick and had tons of huge mushrooms and huge pieces of fresh bacon (not pieces where you have to search for)- it was about $11. I had enough leftovers for 2 other meals! The other dishes looked good and everyone said they were good- they ranged form crab-cakes to other pasta dishes
The service was good- there was a group of 5 of us and we talked a long time before we ordered and the waitress keep checking back in on us.
Reasonably priced... Nice portions.
The food is relatively good, and the portions are large. They serve salad or soup with meals (just like the Olive Garden). Some of the food is a little "heavy."
The ratings are for the restaurant, not for large parties. I attended two functions in their private party room. The service there was terrible on both occasions, and the limited number of wait staff assigned to the room made numerous errors in filling orders.
