Good Food

A group of use 2 couples and children ate here at an off hour which means between peak times so the place wasn't at or near capacity. The service was a bit slow as it took longer than expected based on the customers present. The servers were very good and attentive at first but after we placed the... read more

Love the pasta and service. We think the bread is the best! It has rosemary baked in it and gives it a great special taste. We love the fete-china. It tastes better to us than anywhere else. A manager told us Macaroni Grill uses copper blades to cut the pasta making it easier to adsorb the flavor of the ingredients.

Met my brother and sister-in-law for BRUNCH at Macaroni Grill on our way back to the hill country today. Excellent service and food.

It is a chain restaurant with typical portion control food prep. You do know what your getting when going to a Macaroni Grill.

Went and ate here for lunch. All of us ordered chicken Parmesan with fettuccine Alfredo. Food was hot and fresh with great service. If you like iced tea try a pomegranate iced tea just make sure you stir to get all the flavor.

Excellent customer service, great salad, awesome bread and outstanding main course. What else can anyone ask for? Christopher (Chris) was our server last night and he was just outstanding. Knowledgeable, professional, friendly and extremely punctual, he made our visit just that much better to accompany the main course. The Shrimp Portofino and Chicken Scaloppine were excellent! No room for dessert.

On July 16/2015, I had an early dinner at this restaurant that I occasionally go to. Until recently, I was usually satisfied with the food and service but not this time. A waiter by the name of Daniel took good care of me throughout the meal but there was little he could do about food. On arrival, he poured some... More

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
