Absolutely horrible food. My bf didn't even eat his pasta after the first bite. It was so bad. I was hungry, so I ate some of mine but it was not good at all. Never again.

Decent prices, family friendly. Easy to get to. Nice change from all the seafood and resort food. They didn't seem upset when we shared an entree.

Stop. You need to have a serious conversation with yourself right about now. Take a breath. That's better. Now, you do realize that you are in Hawaii, right? Good, we need to establish that. And that you are aware that there is no shortage of...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
