The food was pretty good. I got the grilled chicken with pasta, seemed healthy and a perfect portion. But the service was terrible and they weren't even busy at all (we were one of 4 tables in the whole place). Also ordered a chocolate cake for dessert.... literally took over 25 minutes.

Have eaten there a bunch of times, good food and a nice atmosphere. Pasta dishes are really great, and the warm bread.

Wife and I stopped by for an early dinner. We have several Mac Grills in our area and have found them all to offer a pleasant dining experience. Staff are pleasant and accomodating and willing to comment on menu items and engage in small talk. Food never appears packaged and each dish appears as if a knowledgable chef prepared it... More

Something about the great Italian smells of this place. Always inviting and home of comfort food. I bit disappointed they don't serve the bowtie chicken mushroom dish I loved so much. Harder to find my new dish. Still love to eat here.

Service was overall good, but they were slow in taking our order, and the appetizers came before we even had a chance to order. Good kid's menu selection. Portions were large.

Cost even at lunch, and if you don't sit in the bar, will be a long lunch. Food was plentiful with portions, but need better lunch options.

We have been here with the family several times now. The kids especially love it. The food is good at a fair price.
