Tried this place again after a year hiatus due to bad food and service, it will be another year before we try it again. I ordered shrimp scampi and Caesar salad. Scampi had no flavor and very skimpy on the sauce yet a half pound of pasta. Salad arrived after 25 minutes and about 60 seconds before our meals. It... More

My son and I went in for dinner last night, and we were more than surprised by the taste, and quality of the food. Over the past several years, Macaroni grill has been in a downward spiral overall. This all seemed to happen about the time that Romano's bought the chain. Food portions, taste, and service have all suffered. Our... More

Great service! Appetizers were fantastic! Kids and husband ordered pasta with chicken, and it was great! I ordered seafood pasta..not much seafood..pasta was good, seafood was disappointing. Food was hot, and came out quickly, which is always a plus with kiddos!

4 out of 5 times this year the food hasn't been ready on time. Last night I waited 40 minutes beyond what I was told on the phone for pick up. My bill was not comp'd as others were and it should have been. The restaurant was not that busy, the staff seemed very stressed, behind and upset. I have... More

We had dinner here the other evening. It's been several years since we last ate at a Macaroni Grill, and in our opinion it has gone downhill. Pasta was just OK, soup (mushroom), tasted like gravy, wine was overpriced for the quality. Too many really good restaurants out there to bother returning.

This was one of the worst dining experiences we've ever had. For a small party (2 adults and 1 child) we sat there for an hour and a half. My 8 year old child was not offered a kids menu, we had to ask. We had to get her crayons ourselves because they didn't. Refills didn't happen. And other tables... More

What a disaster! Went in on Fri night before 7:00. Many, many more empty tables than occupied, yet we were told there was a 15 min wait. (Really low occupancy). Now, the way to really make customers unhappy is to see lots of empty tables and be told there is a wait - it's all about staffing! Finally get seated,... More

I've been here many times through the years. It used to be excellent but has gone downhill the last few times I've been here. They used to be very accommodating when I would ask for a change, but now, the last couple of times, they weren't. When I go into a restaurant and they will not do something that I... More

Arrived early, group of 8, place nearly empty. Three different people did acknowledge us but left us standing 15 min. Service was okay, other than that one entree - a salad - came out after everyone else ate, although we asked several times. Took almost two hours. Food is average, but not priced inexpensively. Will not return.
