Does The Olive Garden offer military discounts?
Olive Garden restaurants will give anywhere from 0-20% off for a Military Discount, depending on location. The Olive Garden has NOT come out with an official military discount so they leave it up to individual owners. I have been to one that gave me a 10% military discount and another that did not give any military discount. So to avoid any confusion, just call beforehand if you really want to know.
Olive Garden Veterans Day Free Meal
Olive Garden acknowledges the tremendous sacrifices that military service members and their families make to protect and serve our country. Throughout the month of November, Olive Garden is celebrating and honoring military families, current service members, and veterans with special discounts and programs, ultimately to help them foster and maintain meaningful family connections.
This Veterans Day, Olive Garden is proud to honor active duty military and military veterans, offering a free entrée from a special menu featuring five of Olive Garden’s most popular items (see below). Entrées are served with unlimited homemade soup or garden fresh salad and freshly baked breadsticks of course!
And for those dining with an active-duty military member or veteran, receive 10% off the meal as well. We ask that proof of service or veteran status is shared at the table.
From their Website:
As always, start with unlimited soup or salad and breadsticks, then choose from one of the entrées below:
- unlimited soup, salad, and breadsticks
- cheese ravioli
- spaghetti with meat sauce
- chicken parmigiana
- garlic rosemary chicken

Military Appreciation Month
During Military Family Appreciation Month in November, Olive Garden is supporting and rewarding military families by:
- Donating up to $100,000 to the USO to support United Through Reading’s Military Program, which will provide 15,000 books for deployed parents to read aloud, video-record and then send the book and DVD to their children at home. Visit Olive Garden on Facebook to learn how to help donate books to military families.
- Providing a 10-percent discount for current members of the military and their families during the month of November.
- Providing a free entrée from a special menu for all veterans and current military members on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, and a 10-percent discount for family members dining with them on that day.
