We were surprised to read the sign on their front door that they serve breakfast too! Too bad we didn't now about that earlier in our vacation and we would have tried out their breakfast (since breakfast at our resort was an outrageous $30/person). We had dinner here and we were pleased. They also have a fresh fish entry option,... More

Breakfast here was recommended by the concierge at our hotel, so we gave it a go. Bacon was the only decent thing about the breakfast, but how hard (really?) is it to stuff up bacon? Pancakes were flavourless and tough. Eggs had cheese in them it seemed (without being noted on the menu) and didn't taste like real eggs -... More

Since they opened we dined here on a regular basis, but no longer eat at Waikoloa Macaroni Grill - last two times this year did not live up to the price tag. The food is not consistent. I will say that dining in the bar area gives you the best service of the entire restaurant so would go for a... More

We have several meals at this location and enjoyed the food. The service was good as well. It was close to our hotel and easily accessable.

Nice portions. Lasagna and chicken parmesian were very good. Waitress very friendly. Went around 5pm and not many people were there yet. This made for a pleasant meal before we went to the visitor center at Mauna Kea.

This last visit to this Macaroni Grill, was less in everything from our last visit. The service was so-so. Didn't see our waiter much, even though it was only 4pm - 5pm and the restaurant was maybe 1/4 full. Some of the food was cool, some was piping hot. No consistency. This is out of, what I would consider, the... More

We came for a late dinner (around 8ish) with two of us. We were seated immediately, and Kitty, our server, was fantastic. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced for the Big Island.

All I can say is that we were excited to have lunch here and we were let down pretty quick! We sat at least 10 minutes before anyone asked if we had been helped. Our waiter wasn't knowledgeable of gluten free dishes and had to go back to the kitchen a few times. The food came promptly and it was... More

Had dinner here once on our trip and really enjoyed it. Sat outside where view not great as in shopping complex but still nice to sit outside while in Hawaii. We both had the Ahi tuna special and thoroughly enjoyed it. the place is a bit on the high side for price but not bad considering the area.

My husband was ecstatic to find a Romano's Macaroni Grill amongst all of the expensive restaurants in the Big Island of Hawaii. We thought it would be good for dinner as we were in the Queen's Marketplace on the Fourth of July to see the fireworks. However, we were both disappointed in the food. It is not at all like... More
