Stopped by for dinner after church services. The server was friendly and provided great service through out the meal. My wife's entree was too spicy and the server provided an adequate replacement entree. Good for a chain level dining experience.

My husband and I ate here at our first night in town. It was about an hour until closing so they were pretty dead. My husband got the chicken fettuccini alfredo and it was absolutely delicious. I tried to stay healthy and got the ravioli, but should have just indulged. My meal was ok, but I wish I would have... More

Not sure exactly went wrong but here's what happened: We made a reservation for Saturday night, 7pm. We arrived a few minutes early and were told by hostess A that our table was being cleaned. We stepped aside, waited ten minutes, asked hostess B if the table was ready yet (hostess A had disappeared toward the kitchen). She wasn't aware... More

We have been going to this Macaroni Grill for years. We have not visited since September 2016. What a change. Needless to say we will not be going back anytime soon. The food was terrible. And it wasn't just one plate it was all four dishes. The only good thing was the bread. But the meal of two chicken scaloppine,... More

My family stayed at a hotel right next to this Macaroni Grill.

The food and service were both amazing! My 8 year old son... More
