We were on a shopping trip to Nashville came back by and stopped in. Wasn't busy 2 tables were occupied. We were seated and that was it no one for about 15 minutes and we got up and left. Will not go back.

After having lobster ravioli at The Palm & McCormick & Schmicks (and enjoying both!) I was excited to find out Macaroni Grill had lobster ravioli. We went for a late lunch & got there a little before 5pm. We were the only one in the dining room. There was a funky moldy smell as soon as we entered the lobby.... More

A friend gave us a gift card for this restaurant. Unfortunately we used it. We took three grandchildren with us for dinner. When we arrived there were only two other tables occupied. Nevertheless we waited over 45 minutes and then only received our food after complaining. No one had checked on us during the wait. The food was uniformly judged... More

Bad service, greasy food, Over priced. This restaurant used to be one of the best in Cool Springs. Matter of fact, one could expect a pretty long wait. But no longer, unless you've already been seated. We waited 20 minutes for our drinks and close to 45 for our food. And there was hardly anyone in the restaurant! Seems the... More

I love the Macaroni Grill in Franklin.The restaurant itself is just beautiful and the food is fantastic. The servers here are always so attentive. Best of all, their spaghetti and meatballs are off the chain. This is a great chain restaurant for Italian food that I highly recommend.

We ate dinner here, good food and good quantity. The service was very slow it took more than half an hour for the food to come in spite the restaurant was empty. The manager apologized and gave us discount. The staff is friendly. I will try the restaurant once more because of the food.

The chicken scallopine is sooooo good. The bread is awesome also! Often have great deals on wine. I am afraid they are trying to go too mainstream with the value lunches & dinners and they just aren't as good, hope it doesn't put them out of business.

Won't be surprised if before too long we are saying, remember that great bread we used to eat at Macaroni Grill before they went out of business. The food has gotten so much worse, the red sauce was barely edible last night. The service is hit or miss. The hostesses are awful. Seems like they are advertising more and more... More

We got reservations for six on Easter. No staff at reception for several minutes, then delay to prepare a table. What was the reservation for? Was not full. The food was OK but then the computer delayed the bill for a while. Just not professional. Maybe going a little downhill.
