Quick service and tasty entrees! A last minute choice for lunch that was a great decision and will be repeated.

Food was good, and even though the restaurant was busy, we did not have to wait for service - the manager had a bartender wait on us at a table. Family friendly, clean restroom, nice atmosphere. Exactly what we expected from a Macaroni Grill.

We attended Littleton's Macaroni Grill for my birthday and had an enjoyable experience. The quality and quantity of the food is always above average and the staff was extremely pleasant. A waitress sang Happy Birthday in Italian and although I know zero Italian, she had a very lovely voice and it was thoroughly enjoyable. I recommend the Macaroni Grill as... More

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 was a bit... 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
