Olive Garden Senior Discount & AARP Discount Policies Detailed

Olive Garden restaurants do not offer age-related discounts like senior discounts.[1] Olive Garden also does not have an AARP discount.

AARP is a group dedicated to those over age 50; membership includes access to discounts on travel and entertainment, plus special offers at restaurants like Denny’s and Outback Steakhouse.[2] We contacted Olive Garden restaurants in California, Idaho, Michigan, New Jersey, and Texas, and representatives verified that the company does not have an AARP discount.

Ways to Save at Olive Garden

Even without a senior discount, you can save on your next meal at Olive Garden by checking out the following ways to save:

  • Olive Garden eClub: You’ll receive a coupon for a free appetizer or dessert. All you need to do is provide a valid email address to sign up for free. Members will receive additional coupons and other promotional information via email.
  • Ongoing specials: Olive Garden’s website lists all current lunch and dinner specials. Money-saving specials can include buy one, take one dinners and never-ending pasta.
  • Daily beer and wine specials: Olive Garden has daily specials on select beer and wine. These specials are available any time during normal business hours — not just during a designated “happy hour.”

Olive Garden recently initiated a Rewards Program to encompass all brands in the Darden Restaurants family (Olive Garden’s parent company), but the company has since discontinued the program.[3]
