I had picked Macaroni Grill to go to for Father's Day and wished I picked somewhere different. The service was slow and we had to ask our waiter to bring us bread when that is something that they normally bring out first. We also had to ask for refills on our drinks. The food was just so, so.

We rarely visit chain restaurants but decided to give Macaroni Grill a try during a log road trip. We were pleasantly surprised by the menu and wished we were closer to home so we could have eaten more. Our waitress, Tiffany was very friendly and attentive. Not what you always get after you start by saying you are just passing... More

We ate here one evening and always look forward to the food. It did not disappoint. Meals were tasty although my flatbread was cold as though it came out of the oven too soon. Service was friendly albeit a bit slow to attend to us. The food was slow coming out of the kitchen. Overall ok but not quite as... More

This is the second time we have visited this restaurant while traveling and it was even better than the first time. The place was very crowded on this Saturday evening so we chose to eat at the bar. Better than sitting at a table! We had Salmon and Sea Bass, both prepared perfectly. Excellent service by Nicolette. The chef/kitchen manager,... More

Wife & I had lunch with a friend & his wife. A marvelous meal, and the service was impeccable. Atmosphere was perfect and our waitress performed an a cappella operatic piece for us. Wonderful voice and a fantastic experience. We will be returning.

Took the family in during lunch, the place was very clean, friendly staff and music was at the right volume. We just ordered the roasted chicken and Arugula flatbread. Great choice it was average price and enough for two people. I would return and order the same item again.

Should have gone on instinct. First attempt to eat there place was empty so my fiancé and I went elsewhere. Second time fiancé wanted to go so we went. There was a 25 min wait. After being seated we were offered to taste wine then all went down hill from there. We waited almost an hour for food which was... More

We reached the restaurant just half an hour before closing time. The waitress was the most amazing person. Super nice, very helpful with the suggestions. We were a group of four. The service was quick, the food was really good. But the best part of the night was the finish, where she gave us a private opera performance. Best meal... More

My daughter wanted to go to Macaroni Grill for her birthday. It was my daughter, son-in-law, granddaughter and myself. My son-in-law and I ordered the Chicken Parm. We had a great time, nice server and all was well. That is, until about 5 hours later; my son-in-law and I started getting violently sick. This went on for about 8+ hours.... More
