Nothing exceptional here, it does not stand out.
I ordered tomato basil soup as a starter, it should have been labeled marinara for the bread, to thick to be soup, sent it back without a problem.
Lamb Shank was wonderful and another of our diners said the salmon was very good. Two of us had lasagna, it was bland and not hot, would not order again.
All in all have had a better meal at Pete's Original at half the price!

The calamari was bland along with the other entrees we ordered. I ordered the mushroom ravioli and it was the best out of the 2 other plates but nothing spectacular. Our entrees came out in a timely manner, however I don’t know why it took almost a whole hour to receive 3 entrees? Idk if they were short on lone cooks or expo but they took so long that by the time the waiter bring us our food we had to grab take out boxes! The waiter felt bad I guess and threw in a free chocolate cake but it looked like something that was frozen and had defrosted by the time we got home with some random topping that was only on certain parts of the cake, we didn’t eat it cause it looked weird. To make a long story short, THE FOOD IS OVER PRICED WITH HORRIBLE SERVICE!

Very friendly greeting by the front desk, and We were seated exactly on time.
Service was excellent throughout our meal.
Food however was a different story. There were 4 of us.
Lamb shank had to be sent back. It was very salty, on the tough side, and had a weird flavor. The Lasagna was good. The fettuccine alfredo with salmon were both very dry. The Salmon with rice and salad was ok.
Additionally, we sat at the bar prior to our meal. There is a big sign at the bar saying happy hour every day from 3 to close. WRONG. In small writing it said, not available. Very misleading.
We have eaten at The Macaroni grill several times before, add the food has always been good. This time it was a totally different story.
I have to compliment the Manager for how she handled the situation in order to make things right. She did the right thing!!

The service was horrible our waitress was super nice we felt bad for her. Manager was completely incompetent, the restaurant was 89 degrees (yes we checked) Manager wouldn’t even walk over to our table he laughed when the waitress told him her customers were hot he seated us and forgot to give us menus or a wine list. Wouldn’t go back don’t waist your time.

Worst service in over 20 years of going here, I spoke to the Manager and he said they were short staff everybody wants to stay home and collect government hand outs.
The restaurant was less than half full on a Saturday night.

I had lunch there last Friday with a friend and it was vary enjoyable. I felt completely safe and Macaroni Grill followed all the COVID protocols. I had a Caesar Salad that was delicious and the bread was perfect!!

Bread plate was dirty; heard waitress complaining about where the hostess sat us; drink arrived late - waitress complained it was due to no clean dishes from the prior days shifts; seafood ravioli did not taste fresh; calamari was soggy.

It seems like every time I go there they are out of their featured wine. If you are pairing a particular wine with a featured dish for heaven sakes keep it In stock. We always have bar issues and it is very annoying. We arrived at 6:00 and they were already out of stuffed mushrooms ... really? Poor bar and food management?

Our server was really good. There were very few people in the restaurant. My wife’s chicken parmigiana was slightly burned. I had the chicken Marsala and although tasty the portion was very small.

It was a horrible experience- the server did not serve bread or drinks or water . Took for ever to take the order even tho the place was empty . Food came before drinks . Did not come in to check if the food was ok. The food was not OK! Noticed both a table next to us and behind us sent their food away. Yeah never again!

We have dined here many, many times before the COVID reopening. The food was definitely not the same quality we have had in the past. Very disappointed. My husband ordered his usual dish and he said it was terrible. The positive was our sever. He was great but he was the sever and bartender so our drinks did not come quickly. Not good!!

We went for Veterans Day . It wasn’t overly crowded. Toward the end I think our server got busy and forgot about us . We waited a while for our bill and once we were done eating we were ready to go

The service was sub par, had to ask for drinks 3 times before getting.
The waiter only checked on us once, too busy talking with other servers.

My companion and I each had the chicken scallopini which was quite good. The bread was also quite good. We each had peach ice tea. I thought it a bit weak, my companion found it to be fine. Do to Covid restrictions, there were only two wait staff, nonetheless, our guy was pleasant and efficient. I would return.

The menu has been pared down, but there were plenty of selections to choose from.
My friend and I ordered the Chicken Marsala with extra garlic for lunch, and we were not disappointed! The service was excellent, and we felt properly socially distant from any other diners.

Usually never have an issue but this time around was bad. We had reservations we arrived it took the girl sometime to get us seated then she sat us at a table right dab in the front where everyone passed. Then it took forever to get water to our table probably like 15min If it wasn't for the other restaurant not having an open reservation I would have left. Then the host came to say they were still trying go figure out who our waiter was... Did we want bread? Order was taken by a young lad the wait for drinks , the wait for food was longer than it should have been, especially when pther guests who arrived much later than us were served promptly. If you ask me our whole meal should have been free. Because the service didn't match up for the pricing of our meals.

We had not been to Macaroni's for a while, and wondered if it would be good. It Was! The food was excellent, and the service was outstanding. The only thing I missed was the honor system wine that they used to have. However, we got a nice, inexpensive bottle of Chianti.
Great attention to cleanliness as well.

I am SO glad that you were open with indoor seating! Our daughter's fiance's birthday is in October and so is my husband's. Our family (party of 7) met for dinner on Wednesday, October 7th for dinner. Macaroni Grill has always been one of our family's favorite restaurants. Since it was one of the few with inside dining, we were happy to have our dinner here. The food was wonderful as always, the service was great and we all had a wonderful time. Keep up the good work - it's so refreshing to eat at a restaurant again - INSIDE!
