We never eat at Macaroni Grill, but when we saw that they offered breakfast we gave it a try... especially since the breakfast buffet on our resort was so expensive. We got everything that we wanted and needed for a great breakfast here, including bloody mary's!

We were ready for a change from the Hawaiian beach bar scene and this restaurant was nearby, The first Macaroni Grill started in our city and we've spent a lot of time at the original so we have a good idea of what the standard is. They have a nice location in the Queen's shopping center. They also serve breakfast... More

My wife and I visited for an early dinner. We sat out on the patio. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the reasonable prices. The stuffed mushrooms were great. My wife enjoyed the flat bread pizza and I had the Chicken Marsala. Both were very tasty. We finished with the Chocolate Kona Coffee mudPie. It was delicious!

Food was good. Service was fast. Location is convenient. This was our second visit and we will likely return. Good place to eat when shopping at Queen's Market Place.

A boring corporate style restaurant with a few fish dishes thrown in. Just average pasta dishes with not flair. They have fish entrées just because of where they are. Good for families and kids. Pizzas are the best bet. The chef shows no imagination.

This is always nice to drive to while at the Hilton. It is a nice change of pace and food is always the same.

We were celebrating a 70th birthday with 5 vivacious ladies. What an awesome evening eating the seafood linguini and delicious bread. Very attentive service even tho she was very busy with tables inside and out. Very refreshing as we ate outside on the lanai. We also received a free birthday desert we all shared. Yummy! Will recommend!

We always like to go there whenever we don't feel like cooking at home. Good price. Love the calamari and spinach salad. The bartender Howard is great!

My spouse had the Parmesan Chicken with Capellini Pomodora - the chicken was tender & the Pomodora sauce was acceptable & it was a very large serving. I ordered salmon - & ask for it to be pan sautéed rather than grilled, as I have found their grilled salmon to be too dry. We have a favorite server who seems... More

OK, I reviewed Macaroni Grill at Waikoloa a few months ago. The eternal optimist, I gave it another chance Sunday. The service and atmosphere were fine. Everything was good except the food. Really! This can be fixed with a new cook and a salt shaker and some management supervision. This food can't be cooked according to franchise standards. I ordered... More
