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!!

We were driving out of Harrisburg and needed dinner. Wanted something different as our last experience at this restaurant was not good. Took forever to get food, food arrived cold..... Need I say more. We figured there would be a long wait as it was Saturday night but we were seated right away??? Hmmmmm. A little worried how a Macaroni... More

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.

Seriously, I rarely eat Italian food in chain places so I went into this place not expecting much. Boy, was I wrong. This place is really nice on the inside. The staff was warm and friendly. But what about the food you say? I say- un freaking-believable! I could not believe how delicious my meal was. This place and all... More

I was visiting family in Harrisburg and have always wanted to go to this Restaurant because we don't have them on Long Island. Everything was just OK. It was a Friday night so I understand why they were busy. Only a 15 min wait, not so bad. Our server was very friendly, but was so busy he didn't even have... More

Great food and awesome service. Kinda sad that people are more likely to leave a bad review of a restaurant than a good one. Don't believe all the bad reviews here. Great food and waiters are knowledgeable. Lots of great things on the menu. We will definitely be back. Thanks!

We had to wait for about 45 minutes while there were open tables in several places. There were four of us and we easily could have been seated in one of the empty spots. Waitress was friendly, but food was not good at all, all four of us were very disappointed with our meals!
