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...

Food was ok. My husband enjoyed his spaghetti & meatballs. I had the fettuccine Alfredo. Portions were large- we took enough home for lunch and possibility dinner. Waitress was vey nice and checked on us.

This Macaroni Grill was downright scary. It was dirty and the manager was sweating through his shirt! Ick.

We LOVE Macaroni Grill here at home and were so happy to see one just down the road from where we were staying but sadly it did not live up to our expectations. It all started out so well! Seated by a nice hostess and order placed right away but from that point on it went down hill :( Our... More

This chain restaurant in the Queens MarketPlace offers breakfast between 8 and 10:30 a.m. We found it to be a reasonably priced alternative to the resorts' expensive buffet breakfasts ($30 per person at the Hilton Waikoloa Village, where we stayed). I have a small appetite so the sides worked best for me. I often ordered whole wheat toast or a... More

We have eaten at Macaroni Grill in other cities and had decent food. This one did not meet our expectations. My food was lukewarm for one and was meant for about three people. My partner's food was good (scallops on spinach salad) but again had almost a whole bag of spinach which she put on another plate to try to... More

Have eat here 2x's 5 years apart, both times took 30 minutes plus to get a table, even though tables open. Seems they serve locals before "tourist"

Hawaii in general is expensive and this place was no exception. The food was very good and so was the atmosphere. Would go back again. The customer service was also excellent. I loved the bread with olive oil-mmhh yummy yummy :)

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
