We arrived and were seated right away. The restaurant was quiet empty. We were asked if we wanted wine, when I was the only taker the other people at the table were asked what they would like to drink. Our server 'Diana" was always pleasant but almost absent. We had to a hard time getting her attention for a refill... More

We were there on a Sunday. The place was dead, but the service was so slow. The kettle and club was missing the kettle and it still took forever. The wait staff were hanging out in groups talking every time I turned around. The food was average. We won't be going back anytime soon.

Macaroni Grill is always a good choice for lunch or dinner. The menu doesn't vary much, but there are usually a few specials. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable and it is a good place for friends to get together.

Took my mom there for her 90th. Brought nine people there to celebrate. She has a rollater and they gave us a great coner table. Everyone had different things and they were all delicious. Went at lunch time and the prices were very reasonable. Good food nice atmosphere.

As a Macaronni Grill virgin, I enjoyed the food and atmosphere of this establishment. Our waiter, Jonathan M was wonderful. He was able to steer us in the right direction for our food choices and was quite attentive!!

Years ago, the food and service at this restaurant was quite special. Nowadays, everything from here is just plain average. Maybe they just don't cook anything with passion. The salads, pastas, and pizza all seem to be lacking flavor. Service has also slid compared to where they used to be.

It pains me to write this review. 10 years ago when my children were in college we would visit this restaurant for lunch or dinner. We were always very happy with the quality of the food and the service and pretty much made it a go to place when we visited our children. It was a lunchtime on Saturday that... More

We arrived only about an hour before closing, but our server (Jacque) was very pleasant throughout our meal. She took time to make suggestions, and encouraged us to relax after our six hour drive. Food was very good and the drinks hit the spot. Not a lot of people were there, but the area as a whole was not very... More

My husband and I have tried numerous Macaroni Grill restaurants and the Wayne location is by far the best. We have never had a meal that did not live up to our expectations.
