“Expensive and not bad food. Pizza trick.”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Had pasta and pizza. Both were good and expensive. My daughter wanted cheese pizza. I learned you can order the pizza from the room and they make it in the same kitchen at 1/2 the price. It's not the stone/brick oven style, but my daughter couldn't tell the difference. It's a fairly safe bet to eat here as a family with a variety of picky eaters, just keep in mind that its designed to feed large groups so don't expect too much in the way of exceptional dishes and service.

“Food choices limited”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We were here in February and there were more entrée choices. They changed the menu. Dinner is much more expensive than back in Rochester. We went for lunch this time and I had the chix parm off the dinner menu and it was only half the size and it was $24 dollars. Kids meals are $12.95 and that's highway robbery. Bread didn't come until after our meal was served. Macaroni grill is one of our favorites, but I was definitely disappointed.

“OK food and high prices”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

This Macaroni Grill had a scaled down menu from other locations we have been to. Prices were very high and not much ambience here. It seemed that most of the restaurants at the falls were pricey.

“You'll be "grilled," alright...”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Unless you're rich, don't go here. I've been to many Macaroni Grills with my family, and have enjoyed the meals there, and we made the assumption that this would be the same. It's not. This is a tourist trap. Not only is it extremely expensive (all the little changes in pricing add up to a whopping bill) but the food is subpar, not the same as at other Macaroni Grills. It's a beautiful location, huge locale, but we quickly realized why the place was empty. I ended up footing a bill of more than $100 plus high Canada taxes for a meal that basically added up to some grilled chicken and pasta with melted cheese. I'd recommend most Macaroni Grill places, but not here. We quickly came to realize that this entire Niagara Falls area has restaurants that are overpriced, taking advantage of tourists that don't know better.

“Pricey but the food is great and service impeccable”
Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

Must eat the caprese salad and margarita pizza. Late evening dinner. Seated right away. Food was delicious! Definitely pricey but everything in Niagara Falls is.
Highly recommend this restaurant.
