Had a great coupon- $20 off $40 so we decided to try it again. We arrived about 4:15 and the staff were frantic. The waitstaff had to tell the manager what to do to improve the situation. We tried an appetizer Mozzarella Fondota. The flat bread served with it wasn't right. It was either stale or something. Weirdly chewy in... More

This is the 4th time we have been to this Macaroni Grill in the last 4 mos. and each time we have come out singed or a little burned. Last night was more of a cuisine and geographic compromise. We have never failed to get our check discounted by the manager because of faults with the meals. Last night, entering... More

Poor service, very slow. Our waiter would disappear for 10 minutes at a time. Food was average at best, had better at Olive Garden which is horrible. Then both my wife and I had upset stomachs the whole night. Not food poisoning......just not right. Too many choices in the area to waste time going there again.

Went there for happy hour in the bar, which I think runs 4 to 7 pm. We had $3 wine and pints of beer - including craft beers. The flatbread pizzas were $5 and were great. Waitress was great too. We'll be going back!

I haven't been to any Macaroni Grill in a few years. I was surprised that, for a chain, the food was very good and the price reasonable. The portions we had were huge. When we went, Thursday was half price wine bottle night. One large bottle ($15 on with the half price) of their house wine served 5 of us... More

There was great service and food at a table in the bar area. They have a very good happy hour in their bar area. We bought wine, their Tapas and flatbreads at great happy hour prices.

We shop in the area, so the Macaroni Grill has been a stand-by for several trips. If you've been to a Romano's before, these location does them right. This isn't your 5-star, old country Italian that you see some people are ripping on them for....but nonetheless very good for a chain restaurant with a moderate price range. A notch above... More

I have to say I wasn't entirely pleased with the quality of the food served here. It is mediocre at best; it does not fully do justice to the Italian cuisine. The servers do their job properly, and it was fairly clean. I like the hospitality mints at the reservation desk. Very nice touch. Overall, it's not a 5 star... More

If you're of Italian ancestry, don't expect great pomodoro sauce and al dente pasta here. But for a quick bite to eat and good basic salad when you're on the road, you will know what to expect.
