Is There an Olive Garden Senior Discount? Is There an Olive Garden AARP Discount?

Olive Garden restaurants do not offer age-related discounts like senior discounts, a Darden Restaurants customer service representative said; Darden is Olive Garden’s parent company. The parent company also confirmed that Olive Garden 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. Olive Garden restaurant workers at locations in California, Idaho, Michigan, New Jersey, and Texas verified that Olive Garden does not have a senior discount or an AARP discount.
