The server was exceptional! She was engaging and attentive without hovering. She made excellent recommendations. She was careful to our needs without interrupting our conversation. The chicken marsala was excellent!

We were invited to dinner at MG by a couple we met in Florida. I am not familiar with MG at all as there are none in Wisconsin and normally when we travel we avoid chain restaurants. I was fully expecting typical chain restaurant food. Boy, was I surprised. I am not an Italian food expert at all, but I... More

I had a nice experience at the Macaroni Grille recently on a Sunday afternoon. It was Super Bowl night which might explain on how empty the place was. None the less the service was spot on the the food portions more than ample. We split a Fat Bread and would have taken some home if it had not tasted so... More

Sad to discover tonight that Macaroni Grill has stopped offering gluten free pasta. As one with Celiac, I need to eat gluten free. I asked for the gluten free menu and was told by the hostess and my server that they discontinued the GF menu. GF pasta was discontinued so I asked for assistance picking out something else safe. Our... More

Spaghetti and meatballs was delicious! Portion sizes are waaay to large...but I suppose that's what's demanded these days. I took a to-go box and made TWO more meals from leftovers. Waitress (Ashley?) was the best!!!

Had very good food and the house wine was very good. Reasonably priced, the clam chowder was not the best (bit undercooked for my taste) yet the dishes we had were great. Server was nice, attentive (not intrusive), and prices are fair.

We are a family of discerning diners, and we have been dining at Macaroni Grill since they opened and have never been disappointed - the food is consistently very good, always hot and tasty...we have some favorite dishes and it's hard to try new things as our favorites are so superb. The mushroom ravioli is a long-time favorite, and they... More

Haven't had nothing on the menu that disappointed. From the chicken or shrimp fettuccine, to the mushroom ravioli, chicken scallopini, and chicken on a brick...nothing could have been any tastier or well presented. The wine was 1/2 off and that was a wonderful surprise! We will continue to be repeat customers because we couldn't be more pleased!
