They are one of the few restaurants tgat are actually abiding by pandemic rules and not sardining everyone into tables next to each other. They have spaced tables or tables not in use in-between tables they are using.

Service was good, kitchen was in the weeds with two two tops and a table of 20. Poor management. When food finally go to table, it was very good.

Brianna our server was the best. It was a lovely Sunday, sunny afternoon in Florida, and they would not allow us to eat outside on their patio. Really!!! Due to Covid: this is insane! We had to go inside! out of the sunshine!

Brianna was great, funny, and helpful! Give her big points!

But when I got on open table, I was told "NO Points for your dining at Macaroni Grill"...guess what, we won't be going back...I use open table for points, and for quality recommendations.

If you don't mind about the points: the food is great and good value. AND they need to seat you outside on the patio! OMG!

The waiters were scattered, looked like there weren’t sure. The food was terrible, wife got a dirty cup for her beverage and it took a long time for service and they weren’t that busy. Never again

I thought I would give macaroni grill another chance after the Thanksgiving fiasco with my first ordering of takeout. This time it was an in restaurant dining experience. The service was very very very slow the food took 35 to 40 minutes to arrive at the table. even though the capacity was socially distant and less than half full the service was lacking. Sorry macaroni grill two strikes and you’re out

The restaurant was not busy, yet our food still came out wrong. We ended up waiting almost an hour just to eat. Usually we don't have issues here though.

Food was delivered to us cold 2 times. Stuffing not good. Broccoli was hard...not cooked enough.

very disappointed in the Thanksgiving meal. I feel our party of 5 should get our money back in full.

This was a Thanksgiving to go meal. The flavor was mediocre, the gravy was sparse and only on the turkey potatoes were bare of gravy.
Temp was just warm. Salad was very sparse only 1/3 bowl of lettuce.
Overall will never order Thanksgiving to go from Mac Grill.
However I will dine in the restaurant again when it is safe to do so

The bartender was our server. It seemed that the split responsibility caused some inattention to our table. Food was warm, not hot. Perhaps the food set awhile after it was ready to be served. Service was just ok, sometimes slow.

The prices was ridiculous and you barely get any food. The bread was hard. The server never even checked up on us. I had to wave her down to get another bread because she was not coming to give us anymore after the 1 she gave us. It was the worst $55 I spent on food and not get full. And the service was horrible.

Food was great, wait to sit down was good. Waitress was super nice just had a hard time keeping up with all of her tables. Some of us never got drink refills. We wanted more bread but felt like we couldnt ask because she wasnt coming around. Someones food was wrong but she didnt come back around for so long we just ate it. From sit down to actual order was 50 min. Usually they are fast but not this time.

Shockingly small portions (calamari and 2 pasta entrees). Taste was fair. I had the penne rustica. Bland and dry.
Doesn’t compare to other similar pastas (e.g., Cheddar’s Cajun pasta) which are less expensive but much better.
Overall, disappointing. Surprisingly so.

The food tasted just ok. Small salad portions (one even had to be remade as it was mostly lettuce). A side item that we ordered was forgotten and brought when we were already finished eating.

Steve was amazing!!! They were clearly short staffed and Steve did a great job being attentive! Food was delicious! We had the same issue with our reservation when we arrived though. The lady told us she didn't see it although I had the confirmation from OpenTable! I asked her to please mark it that we are there since in the past we have gone and then OpenTable emails me saying we didn't go!

Although the restaurant has a lot of room because of the COVID-19 restrictions, they placed us on a table at restrooms entrance. The food's sauce was poor.
