The Best Casual Restaurants

The Top Ten
1 Olive Garden

Cracker barrel sucks. I think Olive Garden is a strikingly beautiful restaurant with exquisite service and excellent food with an outstanding number of choices to pick from.

I like the atmosphere. I am rarely disappointed with my dining experience.

Olive garden is the best ever! The artwork is amazing. Cracker barrel should be in 2nd or mabye even 1st!

Come to the Olive Garden and get yourself breadsticks!

2 The Cheesecake Factory


oh My GOD! They have the best food ever.
p.s. Applebees really? Listen to The Phantom Gourmet... it will put you in your place. Have a nice day.

The place always has a welcoming presence hen I walk in and I will never find food like it anywhere else!

passion fruit ice tea
chicken costoletta
oreo cheesecake

3 Texas Roadhouse

Reasonable prices for good food, unlike Red lobster where it's ridiculous prices for food handled by illegal immigrants.

I agree. The prices are very reasonable. I love the rolls. The servers are always friendly.

4 Cracker Barrel

17 Sal's
18 Panera Bread Panera Bread Company is an American chain of bakery-café fast casual restaurants in the United States and Canada. Its headquarters are in Sunset Hills, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis, and operates as Saint Louis Bread Company in the St. Louis metropolitan area. Offerings include soups, salads, pasta, sandwiches, specialty drinks, and bakery items.

All of these are very nice, but Panera has a very classy atmosphere that everyone can enjoy. Their food is healthy, delicious, and all-natural, and everything on their menu is wonderful.

I like Panera, but I think it is too expensive.

19 Longhorn Steakhouse

good food, good atmosphere. what more can you ask for?

This is my all-time favourite restaurant. Shame that it's not in the UK. :(

20 Red Robin Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews, or simply Red Robin, is an American chain of casual dining restaurants founded in September 1969 in Seattle, Washington

Best because of bottomless fries

21 Golden Corral

The greatest food anywhere.

22 T.G.I. Friday's

The Fridays in Port Orange FL is the best one ever! Spot on service and Managers John, Rob and Dani do a perfect job. Well done Port Orange!

The waters always get your order wrong! Plus, they don't give you much at all. Don't go to T.G.I. Friday's!

23 Bob's Big Boy
24 Ryan's
25 Not Your Average Joe's
