Mike, What erks people about Olive Garden is the same as their sister restaurant Red Lobster. They will advertise on TV or in the newspaper with a picture of their meals and when you order the same meal in the restaurant it is a small portion. They show jumbo shrimp on the plate and you get small shrimp in the restaurants
. Granted, it is tasty, but larger shrimp are more tasty.
