The create your own pasta with penne, spinach and marinara sauce was delicious. The chicken marsala was excellent. Both dishes were reasonably priced. We'll definitely go to this location again

I like Macaroni grill usually but this location was below par. I had the lamb chops and they were very dry. I will say the service was excellent but nobody in our party liked their meal. Ambiance was typical Macaroni Grill which I have no problem with but they need to pick up the quality of their food.

This location needs a lot of help. The person who seated us had the personality of a small soap dish. Our waiter was friendly, however never brought our before dinner bread. Didn't bother to check on us till we were done eating. The Parmesan crusted sole with orzo was an oil slick. When the bread finally arrived with dinner, it... More

The food was pretty good. I got the grilled chicken with pasta, seemed healthy and a perfect portion. But the service was terrible and they weren't even busy at all (we were one of 4 tables in the whole place). Also ordered a chocolate cake for dessert.... literally took over 25 minutes. Waitress didnt check up on us. I figured... More

Grandkids love the food at the Macaroni Grill. The kid's meal is not enough for our 12 year old grandson, so he ordered the Shrimp Scampi for $18.50. He thought it was very good. The twins liked there kid's meal for $5.50 each. My wife tried the Pollo Caprese for $12.95. She was disappointed. My Lasagna Bolognese for $13.95 was... More

Have eaten there a bunch of times, good food and a nice atmosphere. Pasta dishes are really great, and the warm bread.

Wife and I stopped by for an early dinner. We have several Mac Grills in our area and have found them all to offer a pleasant dining experience. Staff are pleasant and accomodating and willing to comment on menu items and engage in small talk. Food never appears packaged and each dish appears as if a knowledgable chef prepared it... More

Something about the great Italian smells of this place. Always inviting and home of comfort food. I bit disappointed they don't serve the bowtie chicken mushroom dish I loved so much. Harder to find my new dish. Still love to eat here.
