Only average at best

Macaroni Grill was only average at best. We went to Macaroni Grill with another couple and two of the four entrees were not what we ordered. They quickly fixed the mistakes but the food was only ok. The greens on my plate were swimming in a bland oil and the chicken was pounded so flat that it... read more

Don't go between lunch & dinner as they will only have 2-3 people working the floor. We waited over 10-minutes just to get a menu...then another 10-mins to get water. Poor guy was way over worked and really tried to provide good service but management should be ashamed of making him handle so many tables by himself. The food however,... More

After a movie we went to MG for dinner. The calamari was OK and the house wine was good. The chicken scaloppine was well balanced in taste; just the right amount of lemon and capers and sauce. The Italian baked dinner is huge: too much food. It was very good although it could have had a little more sauce. Mu... More

Last night four of us returned to Macaroni's for what was planned to be a great meal with family. We arrived and very quickly - too quickly we were being asked for our food orders - apps and mains. We were looking forward to a leisurely dinner. The place had only a few tables filed, so I was wondering why... More

Just enjoyed Christmas Eve dinner with the in laws While I really don't want to know how many calories were in the lobster ravioli and their new 4-cheese tortulacci with prosciutto, butternut squash and pumpkin seeds --they were delicious! The house wines were enjoyed by all as well. The house white is Chardonnay blend with some nice acid notes to... More

I was very disappointed in my food here. I have not eaten here in about 2 years so I was excited to head in and have my favorite dish, Penne Rustica, once again. To say the least, the food was not good at all. The Penne Rustica is made with a cream sauce, chicken, shrimp, prosciutto, and parmesan. The chicken... More

My grandfather got married over the weekend and my whole family of about 30 people went to the Macaroni Grill to celebrate afterwards. The restaurant was very accommodating of our large group and took good care of us. The food was OK. I have been to different locations around and do enjoy it, but all in all Macaroni Grill is...

We used to enjoy Mac Grill but this location in Littleton has disappointed every time we went...4 or so..and we quit..Not sure if food quality has diminished for the chain or just poor preparation here..but they have lost us as customers.

We used to enjoy going to MG because their food was good. The last time we went for lunch and did not like their menu or food and felt their quality had decreased. We went back tonight since I had a coupon for a free entree just to see how it was. They were not prepared for the business they... More

We have been going to this location for 10+ years. The last 2 times we went there, the food was mediocre. I did not even want to eat the left overs. The pasta was not cooked very well and the sauce boring (I got a different dish each time). My wife got a fish dish. She said it was pretty... More
