New Olive Garden Opens Monday In Augusta
The new Olive Garden opens Monday in Augusta.
The fact that we’ve had an Olive Garden in town for years will not stop folks from going to the new location when it opens on December 4th.
The same breadsticks, salad and Italian entrees available on Washington Road for all of these years, will taste exactly the same at the new location, but we love nothing better than new restaurants. Even if it’s only the location that new.
New Augusta Olive Garden
In case you don’t know, the “new” Olive Garden will be off Cabela Dr. in Augusta. Better known as the Costco shopping complex.
That area has seen tremendous growth over the last couple of years with the addition of Dave & Busters, Crumbl Cookies, Ray Ray’s Car Wash and more.
What interests me with this move is what will happen to the building that held the old Olive Garden. It’s no secret that the land had been purchased by Augusta National for their continued growth projects. Usually, when the Club buys the land, and the business is then forced to move, when the Club comes in and destroys the abandoned building, it’s not there long. Wendy’s is a good example of that. Two to three weeks after it closed, the building was demolished. I’m curious to see if the current Olive Garden building makes it to the first of the year. It all depends on the needs and plans of Augusta National.
City leaders have also been talking about making sure that will all of this growth, the traffic flow will keep flowing. Especially as this new restaurant is opening during what should be a very busy holiday shopping season for the other merchants in that area.
The new Olive Garden will be open Monday through Thursday from 11am – 10pm. Friday and Saturday the restaurant will be open from 11am – 11pm.
