Express Lunch a Bust!

We love the food here and received an e-mail coupon for a 7-minute express lunch for the price of 2 for $10. Decided to try it. We were seated, but when the waiter came we were told that if you want the express lunch you cannot be seated first, you must go to the center of the restaurant (which... read more

I'm going to give two reviews today, one for Macaroni Grill and other for Carrabbas. Right now I'm sitting in the Macaroni Grill and Ace while not my helpful hardware man was an excellent waiter! The food I will give you a full and complete run down. Meatballs, good! Sauce, amazing! Pasta, absolutely horrid!!! I ordered the rigatoni of which... More

We were seated right away and the waitress was very nice. No complaints there. We ordered sweet iced teas and were given glasses of what tasted like straight corn syrup water so we returned those and got soda instead. We both ordered the caprese salad and the Calabrese steak. The salad was good. Nothing to write home about. The steak... More

I went here two times recently. The first was with a small group and the server we had was friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed having him. The food was delicious and I liked the drink I had with my meal too. On the second occasion, we showed up with a large group (don't worry, we called ahead!) and... More

The wait to be seated was very reasonable for a Friday night. The staff was very friendly, food was great. Our server was a young man named Ben. He knows what customer service is all about. The restaurant was very clean. Really enjoyed eating there.

We stopped in Harrisburg PA on a trip from South Carolina to Ottawa, Ontario. Searching the internet for something different, I mentioned Romano's Macaroni Grill to my wife. She wasn't thrilled by the name as she associated it with Mac and Cheese, of which she is not a fan. I assured her that they had much more on the menu... More

The Fatbread was one of the worst meals I have ever had. I realize due to the thickness of the crust it takes a longer time to bake, but the individual in the kitchen served a meal that should have never reached our table. What really disgusted me was the non caring attitude of our server in getting this issue... More

I ordered pasta alfredo, and it was somewhat dry. They were skimpy on the sauce. Plus salad wasn't included, even with the pasta dishes and I think this is the first restaurant that I've had that experience. I thought the prices were a tad high to not have even a small salad included.

We were seated immediately. The staff was friendly and the food was delicious. It was a very kid friendly restaurant with a great children's menu. Prices were reasonable.

We made our recent visit on the Wednesday before thanksgiving because our oldest daughter requested this place for her good report card meal. I was worried it would be packed, but it was a ghost town. That means speedy service and full drinks the whole time, right? WRONG Before I get into my review, I have been comped a good... More
