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

Our waitress was awesome! She was very friendly and down to earth and attentive! The food was delicious too! The ambiance was wonderful! We stayed... More

Tried the new 3 course meal for $15 and was impressed. Macaroni Grill continues to be consistently good with their food. My friend had the chicken caesar salad and had enough left over for another meal. We skipped dessert as we were too full. The waitress we had was very attentive and friendly. We will be back.

The ambiance is always good, low lights, nice size tables, but our waitress was very strange. She looked like she was on crack. lol. However, the food was delicious as always, but I had the chicken fetuccini alfredo and I prefer the one from Olive Garden to this one because the chicken is fried. Overall, it was a good experience,... More

One unique thing about Mac Grill is they have low calorie healthy options. Not always easy to find at an Italian restaurant. I love their scallop spinach salad, their stuffed peppers appetizer and all their pasta dishes. The bread and oil/spices they bring pre-meal is highly addictive! Their red house wine is also very good. Atmosphere is nice and service... More
