Once was a great restaurant. Not even close now. Food is bad. Service is bad. Not sure what happened. Used to have the best steaks in town.

I usually try and dine here when I come into town on business. I sit at the bar area and the service is great and professional. They always seem to be pretty busy and it is fun place to have a nice meal. The food is very good and I have never had anything bad during my visits. I will... More

Unlikely name for a lovely space with great food. We chose to eat in the bar area, although the restaurant decor is especially nice. The service was excellent, as were our meals.

Last evening we had the pleasure of going to Macaroni Joe's to celebrate my birthday. Natasha was our server and she was attentive and very sweet. I had the sea bass and it was a substantial portion and cooked to perfection! My husband had the bone in pork chop and again it was quite nicely done to his specification. ,We... More

We love eating here but must have caught them on a bad night. It was very cold outside and the food was cold inside, 3 out of 4 plates were cold the odd one was smoking hot.

My husband and I have eaten at Mac Joes several times. We've never been disappointed. The food is beautifully presented. The service is friendly, helpful and prompt. The wine selection is awesome. We get Mob Queso every time because there are no better Italian nachos ANYWHERE! The Chilean Seabass is as good or better than OceanAir's at the Dallas Westin.... More

The food is consistently been fantastic, the wine selection you can't find better for four hundred miles in any direction. The service is exceptional. Some of our favorites are the mob... More

We love Italy, mostly Tuscany having lived there a number of years. We go back every other year just for the food, people and atmosphere. Therefore we love Macaroni Joes, service, food and again romantic atmosphere. On this visit we got there early and ordered the Prime Rib Special with a loaded Baked Potato (not Italian I know) and it... More

I took my wife here for a romantic dinner, having never been there before, and I will go back many, many times again. The ambiance is that of a Tuscan setting, quiet, romantic, unobtrusive servers, great menu, fantastic wine list. For an appetizer we had crab stuffed shrimp which was superb! As an entree, I had the Chilean sea bass,... More
