We went to a late Lunch with five adults and three kids. First they had to shove us upstairs bc there was no space on the main floor. Once we went up the sticky stairs to our sticky table we sat for at least 10 minutes until we asked for someone to wait on us. At that time the hostess... More

1. Ordered a WELL DONE burger but received a medium rare burger! 2. Ordered frozen Piña Colada but there was a lot of big chunks of ice it's hard to sip with a straw. Gave a second try and specifically requested it to be blended well, showed the server the big chunks of ice. But then 2nd order was still... More

We chose this restaurant based on a recommendation from the front desk clerk at our hotel. The food and service were completely unacceptable. I ordered a burger cooked well done. It was served medium-rare (see photo). My wife ordered wings. The batter was so thick on the wings that you couldn't taste the chicken, and the celery was served unwashed... More

Had burgers and fries here to try it out. My wife's burger was perfect and the fries were great. My burger started out fine but it seemed they added a bit more more meet at the end and it was nearly raw after I bit into it. Maybe this was an anomaly, but very disturbing. Very disappointing.

Dirty, with a basement feel. They don't try to hide the dust on the hanging decorations. It's thick. In some places the dust and grime is so think it looks like the objects on display are slowly evolving into some form of mammal. They are seriously furry. The service is off here. The drink glasses are questionable. They look like... More

Been coming for years, love the food. Generous portions, great drink prices and happy hour specials. While many of the servers are great, some can be very inattentive even when it isn't busy. Bar severs (downtown location) seem to be more interested in tending to the regulars. Overall, great place.

I used to go to Macados, but haven't been there in a long time. Went back today and loved it! I went for an afternoon beer in the bar and ordered wings. I got double what I ordered and they were excellent! The bartender was friendly and helpful. Then we went back for dinner and had a great meal. I... More

Driving thru Roanoke, and we decided to eat here after having visited Macado's in Boone & Bristol before & enjoying it. We ordered French onion soup which was served luke warm.

We have frequented the location in Salem and Tanglewood as well. This one has a lot of atmosphere but the food wasn't up to par like the rest of the chain. Not saying it was bad just not as good as the others.
