"I focus on the fact that Olive Garden had 3.4 percent comps, which isn't bad. That's up from 1.3 [percent]." Cramer said on "Squawk on the Street." "They have every menu price covered."
Cramer made his remarks after the company reported adjusted quarterly profits of $1.08 a share, beating estimates by 15 cents. Darden also said it would spin off its real estate assets into a REIT.
"I liked everything in the quarter and they give you the REIT as the cherry on top," Cramer said.
Darden shares surged more than 3 percent in morning trading.
Cramer also discussed fast-food restaurant Sonic's forecast, saying it is not as bad as people think.
