Used to be better

Sadly Macaroni Grill is going down hill. This is the 2d or maybe 3rd time that we not only had to wait 45 minutes for a table, but over an hour for our food. And, when it comes, something is always wrong and something is always cold. I go for the gluten free pasta and they were out of it.... read more

This was our first visit to the Annapolis Macaroni Grille. Our whole family loves Italian food. The food did not disappoint. My sister LOVED the eggplant parmigiana. The service was excellent. No waiting time to be seated.(Red Lobster had a 1 1/2 hour wait!) We will definitely eat here again.

I've honestly contemplated never eating out again from this one horrible experience. We've been here several times and never had an issue. I use to love their lasagna, but after this...I may not ever eat lasagna again. This experience really left a bad taste in my mouth, literally. This particular visit was just horrible all the way around. The hostess... More

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.
