CEO Clarence Otis joined Cramer on Monday's "Mad Money" TV show to talk about his company's strong October sales, particularly at Olive Garden.

Otis said Olive Garden is "working on all cylinders." The key, he said, has been having a menu that people want and operating the restaurant efficiently.

"You're too modest," said Cramer. "Everybody else told me that this was a really bad quarter."

Otis said his company expects to perform no matter what. That said, he is seeing a "solid consumer."
