We have loved eating at Macaroni Grill for years, but it seemed this branch was just off....I usually get a dish that I savor every bite, but thought the food was just ok. Can’t pay that much for an average lunch. Restaurant was also largely...More

Out of the way location lets us forget about it. But Pete's service was exceptional. Both the shrimp portofino and chicken Marsala were really tasty. I needed more bread to sop the gravy.
