What a disaster! Went in on Fri night before 7:00. Many, many more empty tables than occupied, yet we were told there was a 15 min wait. (Really low occupancy). Now, the way to really make customers unhappy is to see lots of empty tables and be told there is a wait - it's all about staffing! Finally get seated,... More

I've been here many times through the years. It used to be excellent but has gone downhill the last few times I've been here. They used to be very accommodating when I would ask for a change, but now, the last couple of times, they weren't. When I go into a restaurant and they will not do something that I... More

Arrived early, group of 8, place nearly empty. Three different people did acknowledge us but left us standing 15 min. Service was okay, other than that one entree - a salad - came out after everyone else ate, although we asked several times. Took almost two hours. Food is average, but not priced inexpensively. Will not return.

Used to love this restaurant and as a chain visited in other cities because of consistency. A couple of years ago I started my disappointment with a much shortened version of the old menu and many favorites gone and prices went up, significantly. The next time the food was going downhill. I vowed not to come back. Alas last night... More

As someone who has traveled the world I love Italian food. Yes, this is a chain and yes this Italian food is geared towards American palates but it is always consistent, fresh and tasty. I find the chicken or the eggplant parmesan to be the best in the area. They use fresh chicken breast pounded thin. It is lightly breaded... More

It took over 30 minutes just to order our food, drinks took forever too! Waters were never refilled after they were delivered. All in all the service at this restaurant is not very good. The food was ok, but nothing like I remember a year or so ago. I am very disappointed in this establishment and do no plan on... More

First time we went Sunday morning for their brunch. We arrived when they opened, only two other table had customers the whole time we were there. We waited 40 minutes for our food after it was ordered! Two of the five orders were incomplete and the waitress asked if we wanted champagne in our Mimosas, yes! The second time we... More

The simple things in life, Yum! - I'm a spaghetti and meatball guy and their's is pretty good. If you have never been to this place you need... More

Mac Grills are my absolute favorite chain restaurant. In my region they are all closing (replaced by barnes and noble) so you can imagine how excited I was to go here! I have been to ones in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas and they have been consistently excellent. And then there is this one. I should have known when 8:00 pm... More
