We don't normally dine at chain restaurants while traveling but all the others were full. Nice meals, good drinks and very friendly service.

Went to the Macaroni grill because my kids wanted to. Food is take out pizza joint quality at a high price. Have eaten Macaroni grill once before in Ft. Myers Florida and it was pretty good. This one was just not good.

We're seated right away. My wife had spaghetti with tomato sauce and I had chicken alfredo. Also appreciated a nice glass of house Chardonnay. The food was excellent service was good and the Price was Right.

Service was good but slow on a busy Sunday night. Waiter was very friendly and brought my son cake for his birthday. The food tasted good but I could tell my mushroom ravioli had been under the burner for a while.

Ate here a few nights ago while on vacation. Food and service were good, but the food is pricey compared to the mainland. I got the spaghetti and marinara sauce and it was $17.95.

Overly expensive and poor quality. The food here is not in anyway close to being an authentic Italian eatery. Was very ordinary. Service was average. Pasta was bland and tasteless. Pizza was woeful. Like eating frozen pizza.. Just don't. Better options around to spend your...More

Hawaii and prices....Paradise has its price and you do have to pay to get food items to the Islands. That said, Romano's is good food and the price is cheaper than other restaurants. It is arguable not fine dining, but the... 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
