Good tasty with oversized portions and excellent service. You may have to wait as usually crowed but once seated noise is not an issue

Visiting friends in the area and decided to have dinner there. So with 3 boys in tow we hit it up at 5:30...the server was great with the boys giving them extra menus to color on as well as the paper covering on the table, which I have found to be great with the kids. The food came out and... More

I used to love the ambiance at Macaroni Grill, and this location was no different. But it has been going down hill. Tonight I decided to give it a final shot and wish I hadn't. Macaroni Grill must be pinching pennies, because it shows, beginning with mismatched uniforms (jeans), dirty glassware, to the listless wait staff. We used to get... More

Long wait time, server was ok but food was not good. Husband is Celiac and has to have gluten free. One reason we chose them is gluten free pasta. The GF pasta was not cooked properly and somewhat unedible. Our granddaughter was anxious to go here for the alfredo sauce dishes. She was highly disappointed, too thick,etc. I had the... More

This is the second time I have tried to eat here with friends while passing through the area (tfirst time the wait was an hour so we went somewhere else). This time the parking lot was empty but we still waited 10 minutes for a table. The food was the same as other Macaroni grills. Service was ok, but they... More

We thought the empty parking lot was because it was a Tuesday night at 9:00. Little did we know. The server was polite and friendly, although sort of goofy. Too help her clear the table after appetizers and wine, she turned the wine glass upside down on the table paper, spilling wine onto the paper. The non-pasta menu choices were... More

Three people in my party, three different entrees, one looked good (salmon), one was ok (cheese ravioli), and one was downright nasty; chicken parmesan - the guy eating it ate less than a third out of pure hungriness, and said it tasted like it had been left out for a week and reheated. Service was ok for food, VERY slow... More

Like the menu and service. The vocalist was a nice touch to the ambiance. A good place to dine with family.

We recently thought we'd try Macaroni Grill again after about an 18 month hiatus for poor service. We won't go back again. We sat at the bar. The service was friendly enough, but took 30 minutes to receive our appetizer, which was not even hot. I'd like to point out that the restaurant was not busy on a Saturday night.... More
