Service was fine. Meal was not. I am not a critical costumer but was very disappointed with the meal. A "new special" 5 ounce steak was ordered and it arrived a beautiful pink in the middle, just like it was ordered! However, it was almost impossible to cut let alone chew. I mentioned it to the server and it resulted... More

The kids wanted to eat here and so I relented. I don't care for the food here. Service is poor and the quality is missing.

If you want a drink containing liquor my advice is not too. I ordered a Ketel One and that's what I got. About one ounce! It was served in a small glass filled with ice. The drink tasted like water. When I complained the waiter brought back a glass with a shot of volka and another glass with ice. What... More

We were staying next door at the Holiday Inn, so it was an easy walk next door to this restaurant. We had never eaten at a Romano's Macaroni Grill before, and I don't think I've ever given 5 Stars to a chain restaurant. We were impressed by their lunch and dinner specials - great choices at great prices. We also... More

We have visited this establishment a number of times. Along the way, the menu has changed and the prices have increased but somewhat disproportionate to the quality. My husband enjoys calamari as an appetizer, which is for the most part inconsistent from good to rubbery to overdone. The portion size is small and pricey. The red sauce has limited depth... More

The service is always consistently good. The food is also consistently good. Avoid the bib and blue salad. It seems to be frozen. Go instead with the house salad that's made fresh. You won't be disappointed with your experience here. My wife and I visit several times a year

We have eaten at Macaroni Grill many times and also get take-out at least once a month. The choices are great - we recently ordered the mushroom ravioli, eggplant parmesan, & buffalo chicken parmesan dinners for take-out. Everything is wrapped up nicely to keep it warm, and the bread comes also with olive oil to dip in. We ordered some... More

Ok place while on rt 17 north. Decent martini, friendly waitress, fair hot bread. My chicken parm was pretty good, the pasta was not toi good. My wife liked the salad with chicken and pune nuts. Not anyplace i would go for real Italian food. Roadside stop at best.

We never have really LOVED the food, but it is ok. Just so many better spots for Italian close by! BUT...the atmosphere is great, great place for kids, or families, or big parties...was at a shower in the back room, and it was lovely!!
