We came for their happy hour, and to use a couple of coupons we had. Ate in the bar area, as that's where the happy hour specials are honored. My wife had a beer and I had the house chianti. The chianti was nothing to write home about, but the quantity was above average. I actually ordered a small steak... More

Went several times for a great $7 lunch menu with 6-8 different $7 items. My favorite two items were a spaghetti with sausage sauce, and a fried chicken salad item with a huge piece of pounded flat fried chicken. This menu is gone now but watch if it returns.

I went to Macaroni Grill recently because I had a gift card to this restaurant. I have been to Macaroni Grills in other states and have found that they are usually a higher class Italian restaurant, lets say in comparison to Olive Garden. However I guess my past experience set the bar a little high when it came to this... More

I have eaten at Macaroni Grills before and usually have been pleased. This one not so much. My wife got the ribeye and it was one of the toughest pieces of meat I have gotten at any restaurant. The place was crowded so no one got around to checking to see if everything was okay. We were hungry so I... More

This will be a strange review. First of all the Food was outstanding no complaints there. We both left lots on our plate because if the snout given.

What you expect from a chain restaurant is consistency. The reno restaurant does this. The staff is friendly, attentive and polite. The quality of the food was good to excellent and of course large portions. The restaurant was clean. The reason I didn't give them a higher rating is that they no longer have the pasta Milano, really! BRING IT... More

Three for lunch at 11:40. Large open dining area with both tables and booths. As we entered we saw a little veranda outside with tables wrapping around the building -- nice and shady. We chose a booth inside. Comfortable seating, noise level lower than many, background music not obtrusive. Open kitchen. Cloth napkins and substantial silverware, a treat. Butcher paper... More

Went on a weeknight & ordered several different dishes. Unfortunately, none of these were the standard pasta dishes that I always get and love. NONE of the dishes were good. The rosemary ribeye steak was tough & flavorless and the riccota meatballs were dry & there was barely any sauce on them. I told the server that the she could... More
