I’m still trying to find out through all of my various resources the official (or even unofficial) grand opening dates for both Olive Garden and Longhorn Steakhouse. It’s been fun watching these two restaurants be built from the ground up since the latter part of last year. It’s as if the’re racing against each other. I’m so looking forward to eating at both of these fine dining establishments in just a few short months. Look for me there on most Sunday afternoons after Life Pointe Church.
FINALLY – I can now confirm that Red Lobster is indeed coming to the Homestead Pavilion, and it will be physically located right at the southwest corner of the property (closest to the traffic light and intersection with Campbell Drive and SE 23RD Ave. / SW 157TH Ave). Look for groundbreaking to occur on the 7,137 square foot joint later this year.
Olive Garden, Longhorn Steakhouse, and Red Lobster are all owned and operated by the same parent corporation – Darden Restaurants.
