Chicken parmigiana was inedible. It had a very rubbery texture as if the chicken was not fresh.

We returned to Macaroni Grill in Murfreesboro for the first time in months. We are very happy to state that this was a much better experience in all ways: better service, food, atmosphere. We will return sooner than later.

I have a real issue with a main entree not being served with a salad without an additional $2.50 charge. The entrees are expensive and should include the salad. I did not realize a once reputable restaurant had gone a la cart.

Price is way to high. Quality of service lacked. Waitress would walk by the table with three empty drinks and turn the other direction. Portion size for the price is ridiculous.

The food was good and service was good. I had the eggplant parmesan. The recipe has been changed. It was not as good. It appears that it was done to cut the portions and food cost. It is now strips instead of slices of eggplant.

Ordered an item that they had ran out of so ordered a second item. Food was good and my husband got a free desert for his birthday. Took home food and prepared lunch the next day. Overall a delightful Easter brunch.

The food was awesome(Chicken Marsala and Parmesan incrusted sole), and actually seemed like larger portions than we had on the past. Since it was Easter Sunday we expected it to take longer to get our food. However, it came quickly after I finished the soup. The bread is always delicious. The Special soup was very flavorful and full of ingredients.
The only disappointment was the delay in getting refills of Sweet Tea and water.

Food was served hot and was very good. However, as a party of 8, we waited over an hour for our food even though there were only about 5 tables occupied. Not sure what the problem was since it was obvious the kitchen staff were not very busy. Otherwise, as indicated, food was very good.

We saw the dinner for 2/$40 and gave it a go. Not disappointed at all. Chicken tender as can be and tasty. Too many capers but those could be separated out. There was quite an impressive pile.
We were behind a partition so it was hard to get the wait staff attention.
Italian mule and Bellini were delicious o. Chocolate cake, scrumptious.

We were going to split a meal and our waitress pushed the trio meal, which was Alfredo, lasagna and chicken parmesan. The lasagna was cold (was obviously frozen) and the chicken Parmesan was hard. Took forever to get our drinks. They let us order other dishes, chicken Alfredo and another pasta dish. They were fine. It just seems like they are becoming an Italian fast food restaurant.

Table was not set up when we arrived and it took 15 minutes to get it set up. Slow to take our order and refill drinks. We had a party of 11 but took over an hour to receive food once we finally ordered and it was cold when we got it.

Pointless to use OpenTable as they double book over the phone also. Waited 40min. Under staffed. Tables left empty with no one to clean and set. Service was nice enough and food was OK. Just don't go during a holiday.

Had a reservation and still had to wait for my table longer then I thought I should have waited. Every time our server came to check on us he would stand and talk to us he would talk to us while walking around the table and not give us time to ask for anything when we needed something he would ask how we are doing and keep walking so we didn’t get a chance to say how we are doing and the the steak that I order was like chewing gum it was not good at all!

The ambience was welcoming. The service was decent. The menu prices were reasonable. The food was delicious overall. Their spinach artichoke dip did not taste anything like the classic appetizer, more like a queso. I regret ordering and tasting it, recipe needs improvement. I would return again, just won't order any appetizers.

My confirmed reservation through Open Table was not valid according to restaurant front desk staff since “they didn’t confirm at the restaurant.” Restaurant didn’t even try to locate my Open Table reservation and put me in a lineup of people already in the lobby. Open Table should drop their relationship with Macaroni Grill. Reservation was made 2 days in advance and a follow up email asking if I was going to be there was received. I responded that “I will be there!” We ate at the bar as a quicker option. Not going back to any Macaroni franchised location.

What made this visit even better was our waiter Sammi. After our meal he told us he had just started. WoW! You guys have a great resource there. He was very nice. And although they were hit hard on xmas day his service made our day. TYVM

I think reservations at Macaroni Grill must be new or maybe different in other states, anyway, it was Christmas Day and there was much available so we picked this because of location. We arrived a little early but had to wait a long time while they tried to figure out seating. I know they were slammed with a lot of people arriving at the same time and seemed to be short staffed but didn’t feel they were sincere about concern for customer service. The waitress was great though and food was very good. Made up for the mess on our arrival.

We were there on Christmas day, and it was poorly staffed. Our waiter was on only his second day, and he was clearly frazzled, but he was eager to help. The bar got backed up which caused him to get backed up. It was nice to find something open, but hopefully in the future they will staff it better. The food was good, what we are used to getting there.

Absolutely awful...this restaurant need not EVER attempt Christmas Day again. Grossly understaffed, unacceptably slow service (especially from the bar...finally cancelled wine and drank ice water instead), filthy and unbussed tables EVERYWHERE, and a rude hostess who clearly didn't want to be there. Food was good, waiter was excellent, everything else SUCKED. Will not EVER be back 😡😡😡

Waitress was excellent very friendly however the food was abysmal.chicken scallopini was stone cold and parts of the chicken appeared raw.The pancetta was not crispy it had a floppy texture.Pasta was over cooked.Not what we expected for our Xmas day meal.Very disappointing-the waitress was the only redeeming part of our experience.
