Good experience

RMG offers a slightly different menu here. The food was good, service excellent. Definitely a good alternative for a budget-conscious traveler.

Food was very good and we had very good customer service. We did sit in the bar area and it was an early dinner so it wasn't too crowded yet. Customer service was also very good.

This was my first experience with Macaroni Grill. My wife and I had lunch with our daughter and grandson. I found Macaroni Grill to be a typical "American" Italian restaurant like Olive Garden. The entrées were Italian in name, but not in flavor. The sauces were bland to my taste. The service was good.

Having never eaten at Romano’s on the mainland, we were not sure what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised. Prices were reasonable by Waikoloa standards, and the food was delicious. Salads were a la carte, Greens Salad and Bibb & Blue, with complimentary warm bread. As the main course, we had Chicken Marsala served with broccoli and Mushroom Ravioli. Service... More

So, after eating in the Big Island Hawaii a couple of times, will not go back. We have been in 4 different Mac's of which all were very good in service,food and value. The food was lack luster in taste, chicken was only warm and the rest of the food was boring and lacked appeal. With many fine places to... More

We stayed in Waikoloa and went to this restaurant a few times due to convenience and friends who enjoyed the food. The appetizers were good and I would recommend the mac n' cheese bites for something different but the main courses were not very good. I had Carmela's Chicken, it was too rich and not fresh, we went home with... More
