Service was good but slow on a busy Sunday night. Waiter was very friendly and brought my son cake for his birthday. The food tasted good but I could tell my mushroom ravioli had been under the burner for a while.

My husband at I dined at Macaroni Grill while on vacation. The location is convenient with lots of parking in the back. The menu is more expensive than at other Macaroni Grill locations. I had made a 7:30 reservation and did not have to wait....More

Ate here a few nights ago while on vacation. Food and service were good, but the food is pricey compared to the mainland. I got the spaghetti and marinara sauce and it was $17.95.

Food just avg. Nice restaurant setting and atmosphere. Wait staff not friendly very much at all. (Late to table and cocky. Also seemed to throw food onto table at us). These were separate people. From hostess- to waiter- to kitchen server bringing food).
