The waitress brought my husband's soup late, after we had received our entry. Otherwise fine. Thanks, it was his birthday.

Decided to spend Thanksgiving at Macaroni Grill. Had reservation at 6:15pm and was told the special turkey dinner had run out. Was extremely disappointed in the cleanliness of the place... oil streaks on booth seats, random hair tucked within the folded cloth napkin and mysterious black particles floating in ice water. The server must have been new... poor guy was nice but wasn’t prompt with greeting us, I had to ask another server to inquire about our table’s server after waiting 15 minutes. Beverages came out after salads and soup arrived and never had the balsamic vinegar added to oil dip for bread even though server said he would. Grrr. The food was great as usual, just wish the service was better as well as the cleanliness.

We made reservation weeks before Thanksgiving for 5:30 Thanksgiving day and they were already out of Turkey meals that they advertised for. We had out of state guests , it was embarrassing.

Enjoyed having Thanksgiving dinner here this year. Everyone got just what they wanted as they had their regular menu and the Turkey special. For those who want the Turkey, it was quite good. Fresh roasted turkey plus all the trimmings and a delicious cheesecake dessert for one price.

I Put a lengthy review on yelp
It was amazing our server was Kimberly Rose she went above and beyond when she took care of the check for the 94 year old lady that was sitting next to us . Made my Thanksgiving to see an employee that had to work on thanksgiving for all of us and used her hard earned money to pay for someone’s meal.
The lady was so appreciative and she lit up like a Christmas tree!
Will be back with my kids and family during Christmas week !
Chicken scaloppini was perfect!

We are normally a big fan of macaroni grill during the regular season. So we thought we would be different and skip cooking dinner and go out. Someone at our table got the lamb and the rest of us got the turkey dinner.

We did expect the service to be slow but when our food came out luke warm, I was disappointed in macaroni grill. Over all it was a buzz kill for our thanksgiving dinner.

A Thanksgiving Dinner is probably not indicative of a typical Macaroni Grill dinner. They did a good job in relation to the price.

It was a birthday celebration, stoked he got to pick any dessert. Bummed just a little that there was no opera singer to sing happy birthday, but server was really sweet.

Food was very much what you get in frozen food section. Eggs at brunch were gross and I’m pretty sure they microwave their bacon.

Great food and we've usually had great service but Rick was awful last Saturday night! He took away the oil that is usually left on the table, didn't even offer cracked black pepper, and didn't offer any water until we had to ask for some. Rick also screwed up one order and forgot the soup in another person's meal. Every time we needed something, Rick was nowhere to be found. After the meal, Rick then came in with the hard sell on the desserts. We ended up ordering two desserts and Rick brought one. We just gave up and then went home. We love the food and ambiance at Romano's but the service was unusually bad last Saturday night, hopefully, you can train up Rick to make him a bit better at his role.

Arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation, they seated us right away. Food came out on reasonable schedule. The food was delivered hot, with the minor exception of my fiancé grilled chicken being overly peppered it was a great meal.

The food was amazing!! Im speechless on the quality, taste, and amount. Pure food perfection! Kim, our waitress, amazing. I have no complaints. We were stuffed and took leftovers which were just as amazing reheated.

I highly recommend the lobster bisque, lobster ravioli and shrimp scampi. And definitely the cheesecake. Even the garden salad was great.

As soon as I reached for the door handle and it was sticky, I knew we were in trouble. We had to ask for everything and items we ordered were forgotten. The food was mediocre, at best. The only positive thing I have to say is, it’s a good restaurant for kids. The crayons and paper on the table kept our 3 year old entertained through the whole meal.

We have gone to this location on many occasions and this time was very disappointing. The food was below average and very bland. My husband ordered extra sauce to be baked in with his meal and instead it came out overcooked, dry and sauce on the side. The waitress was not attentive and we were over half way through our meal before she checked on us for us to tell her how terrible the food was. Not sure if we will return

The cost of the food versus the service is not comparable! We had to ask 4 time for a side of ranch for our appetizer and by the time we received it the appetizer was cold . I ordered a salad and it was so small lol they had forgotten half of it . We had 4 kids in our party and they brought 2 of the four kids meal while the other two kids were hungry asking where theirs was !
The waitress was missing in action. We will not waste anymore money there !
