Good food

Lived up to the standard of Macaroni Grill....had the Salmon Grilled, perfection, crusty outside and medium inside. The accompanying Orzo was excellent.

It's the bread. Really. Macaroni Grill's food is some of the best Italian anywhere, but the bread is THE best anywhere. We occasionally try other Italian restaurants that are recommended to us, but we always go back to the MG in The Woodlands. The service is great, the prices are comparable to most & maybe a bit lower than some,... More

I went the end of November with friends and felt as soon as we arrived we were welcomed. Atmosphere is friendly and I love how the wine, quite good, is on the honor system. All of our portions were very fair as three of us took home enough for another meal.

It amazes me how people fill up the big chain restaurants that serve low quality crap but family owned homemade great quality good priced places hardly get anyone in their establishment. The menu has little choices and on top of their overpriced dishes, they have the nerve to charge additional for side salad. Dinner doesn't even come with salad! .... More

The Macaroni Grill in the Woodlands, Texas starts each meal with a loaf of hot bread from the oven, brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with rosemary. Fantastic with the real butter, instead of dipping olive oil. Even their lunch portions are large enough to split. Try the Chicken Parmigiana, which has two large pounded chicken breasts, pasta, and a... More

Yes, the menu is determined by the central office, and the other policies too. But they WORK. Good food with an interesting variety, limited wine list so you can concentrate on other things, prompt service and as little waiting for a table as the staff can manage. No, it's not the Ritz-Carlton, but for the price it's just fine.

I generally stay away from Macaroni Grills, but this one was convenient and it was lunchtime. Three of us went for an early lunch of salads and entrees. All told, it was just average. I had the Bibb & Blue salad which was very good. Then the Italian Sausage and Potatoes. It was two sausages roughly split and grilled served... More

While Romano's is not at the top of my list of Italian chains to visit, it does rank above Olive Garden. And I suppose I could explore the menu more - I just haven't liked anything I have tried enough to frequent it when there are other options. However, we visited with friends this time, and I don't have any... More
