We weren't sure if the restaurant was open, no cars, so my friend went in and checked and they were opened. We were the first people there. More did come later. We had the special, appetizer, entree, and salad. My lunch was good and the other two with me enjoyed their food. We had a very nice, fun and friendly... More

I took a couple of friends to this local chain restaurant, which was my first visit there in a few years. I found the restaurant to be as good as always, with a robust lunch menu that featured several attractive entrees and several inexpensive specials worth ordering. They had a three-course lunch for about ten dollars that really had me... More

The restaurant itself is quite appealing. The stonework and layout of the property is really neat and makes you feel comfortable. That is until the terrible customer service starts. We ate here as part of a large group gathering that required 2 tables with 2 separate waiters. The table we were at had a waitress named "Ariel". She was friendly,... More

We had a great experience with wonderful lasagna and an extra good pork chop. Raspberry sorbet was also exceptional. Very good service.

We came based on a friend recommendation that food was good. That was true....what we got was good. My order had a side of pasta, so the small serving was acceptable. My husband ordered a pasta as a main dish...what he got served was a very small portion by anyone's standard. Based on the price of the dish, he expected... More

This was our first time At Macaroni Grill. We visited at lunch time and enjoyed our time there. Our food was Excellent and our portions were large enough that my husband and I were able to bring enough home for dinner that night. I had the lunch special: a tasty appetizer, large salad and Pasta Alfredo with Pancetta and Gorgenzola... More

Having never visited a Macaroni Grill, let alone look them up on Trip Advisor, my family of 3 did not know what to expect. We were greeted and seated promptly. The food was not as welcoming as the waitstaff...overcooked pasta served in a gooey mass, tomato-basil soup that was akin to extra thick marinara, a watered-down alcoholic beverage served in...

On the way home from a long trip the family was looking for someplace besides fast food for the evening meal. They wanted Italian and Romano's delivered! This place is clean - nicely decorated and the food was a pleasant surprise. Minestrone soup was tasty - nicely seasoned and piping hot. Cesar salads were cold and crisp with a flavorful... More

Great restaurant with so many choices to include pasta, chicken, fish and make your own pasta where you create you own dish with the ingredients you like. Bread is served in a round loaf and you tear pieces off and dip in their oil concoction. You meal can be served with a salad, also very good and a full bar.... More

Great service and great food. The pizza was some of the best pizza I've had (and I eat a lot of pizza...). Go with the Margherita for its simplicity.
