Macaroni Grille- more of a restaurant

The best Italian food I have had in a very long time. The name sort of put my expectations off. But it all changed when going thru the door. Surprise yourself and go.

This is one of our regular places for dinner, and we are happy return customers. The food is great, and the service has always been good. I like saucy well-seasoned dishes, and the shrimp portofino is one of my favorites. My wife loves their mushroom ravioli. We have tried many of their other menu items and have enjoyed most of...

This place was one of my favorite places to eat while in Annapolis and over the years this place has slipped to my least favorite place. They have changed the menu over time and eliminated the better dishes. The service has slipped at this place as well. I miss the old Romano's but have found the Cheesecake Factory nearby.

Went with my wife and three little kids. The server was very polite and very accommodating for my kids. We ordered their food first and it came out quick. I ordered the mushroom ravioli and loved it. My wife had the Marsala and it was way too garlicky which is why I have them a 4.5 instead of a 5.

I had heard a lot about this place, in particular this chain for it's Italian food. To be honest, nothing to brag about ... it's just an average meal. If you want Italian, look somewhere else, however, if you just want a meal, it's just ok!

We have been going here for years. Food is consistently good. They have the best Chicken Marsala in town or out of this town. They now bring water bottles to the table which is a very nice convenience. Overall good atmosphere and good. Service is usually good too.

Went on a Friday for an early dinner. It was just me so I sat at the bar. I had a menu in 30 seconds, a glass of wine in 1 minute, bread in under 5 & meal was out n under 12 minutes ( sole parm). You can't beat that. Meal and wine was $19 before tip.

A very nice experience in all ways from the greeting to the food and the service. I recently discovered I was having a reaction to eating wheat products. So, I asked if they had a gluten free menu and they do. It has four pages of options and selections and I discovered they had a gluten free pasta so I... More

This visit today was the first time my husband and I had ever eaten here. The appetizers were good. When we received our main course it went down hill from there. My husband ordered chicken marsala and it was the worst he had ever had. He could not even eat it, very bad taste. I had scrimp and pasta dish... More

I ate dinner here with a crew of family members while visiting Maryland. I was extremely impressed by the decor and atmosphere in this restaurant. Our waiter Matthew was amazing and very attentive to our needs. He was very helpful and nice as I was trying to decide what to eat for my entree. I noticed many questions were asked... More
