Always a good meal

I will tell you outright that generally I am not a big chain restaurant fan. I do like several chains and this is one of them. I have never had a bad meal here. When you live on an island food choices are limited. Sometimes a chain has to be an option just to try something new. I love the... read more

We don't have any macaroni Grills near our home so this was a new experience for us. The food was absolutely delicious. The wait staff (especially) Gary, was top notch. It was a fun evening for all of us.

We were visiting the Queen's Shopping Center, and this was the only sit-down restaurant in the center, That said, it was a very good choice. It was 90/90 outside and the Macaroni Grill was cool inside! The service was excellent, and the food good, with large, tasty helpings. We will visit again.

Sherri had the Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo and thought it was very good. I had the Chicken Marsala. It was good, pasta cooked perfectly but the Marsala sauce was a bit overwhelmed by garlic with 8-10 cloves in the mixture. Still good, probably great if you love garlic. Of real note here were our two servers, Ala and Delrae. You could... More

Having read some reviews about the slow service and mediocre food, we were pleasantly surprised. Our waiter, Gary, was prompt and efficient. He was very accommodating to my children with the keiki menu. Our kids were happy and satisfied. My wife and I shared a margherita pizza and Caesar salad which were tasty. We each had a Pinot by the... More

We had a great lunch here. It seemed to be the best place to eat for lunch at the Kings and Queens shopping malls. Food and service were good, and there was no queue.

This restaurant was close to the resort we were staying at and it was my father's 80th birthday. We had wonderful service when we told them it was his birthday they brought him dessert when the meal was finished. We all enjoyed our meals would certainly recommend this restaurant

Close to Hilton Waikoloa Village and in front of a super market where you can buy many souvenirs. The food is very good and the size is huge (you can easily share with your family the plates). No line and very good services

The food was very good and the service was fast. Servers were very accommodating with good personalities. This is a very good option vs eating dinner at an expensive resort restaurant.
