The food here was very good but the service was beyond slow. The place was not busy and our meal took so long that they brought us free bread and dip to tide us over. Even though the food was good no one wanted to...More

Late dinner here after beach day. Offers a good assortment on the menu. Everyone should be able to find something they like. Nice break between all of the seafood dishes we ate 😃

Located in Queens Marketplace, this restaurant serves Italian style food that is good, but not great. Latest menu options were an improvement and make it worthwhile for a local visit if worn out after a day at a local beach. Nice bar.

Servers were great food was okay. Used to have one around where we lived that was great. The food is definitely not the same. Just okay.

Dry Salmon... with a plate full of bland pasta and greens. My money was refunded, but it was a very slow time of the day and I could not understand why the Salmon would be so overcooked.

I know a franchise restaurant is only as good as the operator, and that corporate types can make bad decisions on menus, and this was a clash of the two. They no longer bring that yummy bread to the table. It costs extra, which is...More

You don't bring your own wine, you have to BUY there and that depends on the type of wine you buy $30-to probably hundreds. They are priced the same as any other Macaroni Grill, it's a chain. It's reasonable. But nothing... More
