Very nice dinner and very nice employee. Just a stop off I-75 near Brandon Fl. We had stop at other Romano's in Fort Myers but this one was one or two step up from them the food and employees were very nice and the cost was very in line with what we had. I would say they have real Chefs... More

Our son recommended that we try the Macoroni Grille based on recommendations from his friends. Are we glad we did! The food was delicious and portions quite generous. Desserts were so tasty. Our waitress was attentive and pleasant. Wonderful evening...

Folks on another app had not so good things to say about this place. For us, the service was good and the food was better. The steak was grilled to perfection although the roasted potatoes were a tad under cooked. My wife's lasagna was equally good. So I'm thinking either the cooks (yes these guys are not chefs) have been... More

I must admit I hadn't been to Macaroni Grill in quite some time so the express lunch concept was new to me. The food was very good but the hostesses explanation of the Express lunch was bad. The way it was explained, you had to make a decision prior to being seated as to whether or not you wanted it.... More

The server was exceptional! She was engaging and attentive without hovering. She made excellent recommendations. She was careful to our needs without interrupting our conversation. The chicken marsala was excellent!

We were invited to dinner at MG by a couple we met in Florida. I am not familiar with MG at all as there are none in Wisconsin and normally when we travel we avoid chain restaurants. I was fully expecting typical chain restaurant food. Boy, was I surprised. I am not an Italian food expert at all, but I... More

Tried express lunch special, 2 for $10 and not disappointed. In fact very impressed. A little confusing to order at bar register but all worked out. Wife and I were only ones at the bar area, promptly served. Perfect lunch portions. Well seasoned. Sausage rigatoni very good a little salty but good. Spagetti verde with extra grilled chicken was excellent.... More

I had a nice experience at the Macaroni Grille recently on a Sunday afternoon. It was Super Bowl night which might explain on how empty the place was. None the less the service was spot on the the food portions more than ample. We split a Fat Bread and would have taken some home if it had not tasted so... More

Sad to discover tonight that Macaroni Grill has stopped offering gluten free pasta. As one with Celiac, I need to eat gluten free. I asked for the gluten free menu and was told by the hostess and my server that they discontinued the GF menu. GF pasta was discontinued so I asked for assistance picking out something else safe. Our... More
