Went to Romano's Macaroni Grill after a long day at the RV Show in Hershey. We were seated promptly and greeted by our waiter, Tre. He was a great young man, lots of personality and very attentive to us. Our appetizers and main entre were delicious. My husband has said three times since we left there how good of a... More

Went for lunch and had a good meal - wish there was a category between average and very good. The waiter was very attentive. We both had salads and they were fine. Nothing special but okay for lunch.

We were on our last night in Harrisburg and wanted to have a nice Italian meal, thinking you can't go wrong with Macaroni's. But we were wrong! There was a party of 12 and they seated us in a room that was barely large enough and we wanted to close the doors so as to not disturb the rest of... More

Food is usually OK if not pretty good. They have deals and new items which is nice. The service always seems kinda bad, slow from the time you get seated. Takes ten minutes or more for drinks, about thirty more minutes for the food. I have even waited 15 mins. Or more for the bill. Cooks are slow but servers... More

We stopped here on our way to VA. Restaurant was empty, maybe 3 or 4 tables. No one was at the door to seat us. Took about a minute. After being seated, took another 3-4 minutes for a server to come to our table. After that our order was taken and 2 of the 3 orders came out together,. Now... More

After several visits, each getting progressively worse, I'm finally done with this location. Filthy restroom, missing menu items, cold soup and cold mushrooms app have finally taken their toll. While the staff seems to try their best the poor environment and food quality overrides their attempts.

I will NEVER eat at this food chain restaurant again. The service was great but the food was terrible. When you look at the kitchen area you think they are really cooking back there until you get the food. No taste at all. It was really bad. Never going back!!

Having never been to this or any other Macaroni Grill, we were very pleased with our entire dining experience. Great food and service, very nice atmosphere. It's definitely a cut above The Olive Garden and they have gluten free pasta to boot. We have returned to this restaurant several times since our first visit and will continue to do so.
