We stopped in for a later lunch (1:30pm) and service was fast since there weren't many people dining. Typically 'fast food' pasta. Friends enjoyed the margarita flat bread (just like a thin crust pizza), all pastas were reasonable portions and reasonable price.

The food was good enough, but the service was somewhat lazy on this Sunday afternoon. Seemed like several of the staff were more interested in the football game. We have been focused on visiting only locally owned restaurants during this visit. Wish we'd stuck with that plan

Carolyn was our server and she made us feel very welcomed. Food was very good and a great price for Hawaii. We spent about $70.00 (with tip) for 4 adults.

We had a couple hours between check out and flight. So strolled Queen's shops, and decided to stop in for a glass of wine. It was Saturday and college football was on. FUN. Our waiter was the nicest guy. He recommended an appetizer which did not disappoint ( Mozza wraped in prosciutto with marinara). We asked if he knew the... More

OK it's a chain but the service and food was good here. We went there twice, once for dinner once for drinks. They offered the typical fare that was well prepared and they offered local craft brewed beers. A good choice at the right price.

Easily the busiest restaurant in the Waikooa area. It is reasonably priced like the mainland not expensive like the rest of the Kohala coast. The food is ok but they seem to think that "Italian" means swimming in olive oil. Both of our dishes suffered from this. Yes it was tasty but if you are looking for authentic Italian pasta... More

Of course about double in price of stateside Macaroni's. But food was excellent and much larger portions. Had to get doggie bags.

Much more reasonably priced than the hotel restaurants, but the food and service was second to none. Eating here was a highlight and I highly recommend it. A menu to satisfy the whole family - great steak (lost most of it to my daughter!).

While we try not to eat at chain restaurants when we are on vacation, this Macaroni Grill serves breakfast so we decided to give it a try. We did receive food, although one order was completely incorrect. We didn't even bother telling our waiter that the paniolo plate with bacon I ordered wasn't the same as the Queen scrambler, which...
