Great Service

We got to the area too early for dinner at many of the restaurants, but our tummies were still in another time zone. Macaroni Grill was open mid afternoon, the food was great, they even had gluten free pasta for me. Service was excellent, and the waitstaff was friendly and efficient. They even... read more

The meal met expectations, but wasn't notable. The bread was good as was the service, but the food was just okay. It wasn't worth waiting for, so unless you have a reservation, find somewhere else to go.

For Americans used to the chain at home the prices will be higher, that's the Hawaii factor. For Europeans like most American restaurants the food is plentiful and good value. We arrived there just before 8 and sat at the bar. The server suggested that at 8pm their second happy hour would start and as his watch was fast it... More

This restaurant is a typical chain restaurant serving average Italian food. Kids seem to like the food, including the choice of plain cheese pizza. A couple choices are notable: a dish based on options to "create your own pasta" and a grilled pork chop which is really juicy. A couple of concerns are that the food is too salty and... More

This Macaroni Grill is in the Queen's Marketplace and is convenient to all the accommodations in the Waikoloa Beach Resort area. The 4 of us had breakfast here and agreed the pancakes were delicious, the scrambled eggs were a bit greasy, linguica and eggs was good, the eggs with shredded pork was very good, coffee very good, service was a...

More reasonably priced than nearby resorts. Good table service, food preparation a little slower. Generous portions, good pancakes. Located in Queens Marketplace next door to Waikoloa Marriott.

Food was just OK. The service was terrible. Had to ask repeatedly for water. One of our four meals was below sub-standard. When we asked to take is away one server stated she could offer a 10% because the meal was half eaten. Really, half eaten??? Eating 1 an a half ravioli is not half the plate. However, the manager...
