“Average”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Some Macaroni Grills are better than others. This one is very average. The food was just okay. Fish was dry and pasta dish had mostly pasta and very little of the chicken or mushrooms it was supposed to have. Service was friendly and timely, but lacked things like asking if we wanted gresh ground pepper or cheese for our pasta. We had to ask.

“Typical Mac Grill”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

It's a chain dedicated to families. This one is a little over the top with the singing. The menu is typical and limited. Had good service and, while not gourmet, the food was good, served hot and the waiter pleasant.

“Slow service... average food”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Only 10 tables a few in the bar... About four chefs, 6 waitresses and the service sucked.... for a one a clock lunch and not really busy. .. it took over 45 mins to get food... It was OK and our waitress was slow.... Glad we had a gift card so we didn't have to spend that much. This was the second time we had slow service... Disappointed. :( not going to be back

“Macaroni Grill - Brandon”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

This is a great place to go after the mall since it is in front of the Westfield Town Center. Although anytime would be good. Food is fantastic and atmosphere is relaxing.

“Surprised by the choices”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

As far as the Gluten Free menu choices, I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with the options. The service was really good and everyone was satisfied with their meals. The atmosphere was nice, but it doesn't have the same feel that it use to a few years ago when Romano's first popped onto the scene. The music choice isn't the old jazzy, swing or classic Italian music that use to lend to the dining experience. Now, it is just a mesh of, just kind of...whatever. You almost feel as though you are listening to a radio station that doesn't have a genre. It was odd. But, overall it was good dining.
