I tend to avoid the chain restaurants like the plague, but occasionally find myself invited to them by business colleagues at lunch. MG seems to peg itself just a bit higher than many chains and consistently deliver quality product, even if it's not what you would call fine dining.

They were a little unorganized at the hosts desk, at first but then we seated and waited on right away by Chris (I think). Chris suggested a wine tasting and talked up the 1/2 lb meatball dish, which was delicious. There were four of us. All four of our meals were very tasty. The service was good and the place... More

I love eating here, and I am never disappointed in the food. Their homemade bread is the best I've ever had, and they always give me a free loaf to take home for later. The prices are pretty good, and the service is also really good even if they are really busy. The worst visit I ever had was on... More

We've eaten at Macaroni Grill many times. It's always a treat for us since we don't have one anywhere near us. Unfortunately, this was the first time I was disappointed. It was a Sunday night and it was very slow but it took forever to get water; then menus. Typically, I've been offered a sample of wine to see if... More

The Macaroni Grill has a lovely decor. It is one of the prettiest restaurants in the area. The food, however, is average. The bread served before dinner is honestly the best part. I think I could make a meal out of the bread alone ... I ordered a sandwich and requested to make a few modifications (I follow a low-fat... More

The food was just average. The light and railing by our table had a thick layer of dust. I did point this out to the waiter. The waiter was great and service nice, but the food needed more flavor. It was my first visit and not sure if I will return.

Once upon a time this restaurant served hearty portions of food at reasonable prices with nice service. Adding a dinner salad to the entree, which must be ordered separately for an additional price, was not necessary. This restaurant had the greatest majority of the dining room area occupied. Now the complete opposite has occurred. They have significantly reduced what they... More

I really do like Marcaroni Grill! They have a nice lunch selection and I think they are pretty inside. I ordered the you pick 3...soup was cold, needed to be reheated. They brought it back hot but half of it was gone. The half that was left was good, but still wonder what happened to the other half. My sandwich... More

Service was great which saved them from a "1" review, however, the food was extremely disappointing. My husband ordered chicken parmesan and my son got chicken strips... all of the chicken looked and tasted as if left in the fryer too long. I ordered the Carmela's chicken, the wine sauce was too watery and didn't even coat the pasta well.... More

Nice place for an affordable meal. We like the create-your-own pasta bowl. I think the last time we were there it wasn't on the menu, but it's available if you ask. And take a trip to the restroom to learn a few Italian phrases.
