Olive Garden in Baxter

If the Olive Garden in Baxter looks a little different to you, it's not just that it's new to the lakes area.
The much-anticipated restaurant addition to the lakes area isn't the same Olive Garden. The chain changed the look for its new restaurants creating a rustic stone exterior and using a farmhouse look with exposed wooden beams and character of a farmhouse in Tuscany, Italy as a model.
"This is how they’ll all be from now on," said Olive Garden General Manager Miranda Ahlers. "We’re one of the newer ones to have the exact layout we have."
