The food was good enough, but the service was somewhat lazy on this Sunday afternoon. Seemed like several of the staff were more interested in the football game. We have been focused on visiting only locally owned restaurants during this visit. Wish we'd stuck with...More

Carolyn was our server and she made us feel very welcomed. Food was very good and a great price for Hawaii. We spent about $70.00 (with tip) for 4 adults.

OK it's a chain but the service and food was good here. We went there twice, once for dinner once for drinks. They offered the typical fare that was well prepared and they offered local craft brewed beers. A good choice at the right price.

Easily the busiest restaurant in the Waikooa area. It is reasonably priced like the mainland not expensive like the rest of the Kohala coast. The food is ok but they seem to think that "Italian" means swimming in olive oil. Both of our dishes suffered...More

Of course about double in price of stateside Macaroni's. But food was excellent and much larger portions. Had to get doggie bags.

Much more reasonably priced than the hotel restaurants, but the food and service was second to none. Eating here was a highlight and I highly recommend it. A menu to satisfy the whole family - great steak (lost most of it to my daughter!).

While we try not to eat at chain restaurants when we are on vacation, this Macaroni Grill serves breakfast so we decided to give it a try. We did receive food, although one order was completely incorrect. We didn't even bother telling our waiter that...More

Food was ok. My husband enjoyed his spaghetti & meatballs. I had the fettuccine Alfredo. Portions were large- we took enough home for lunch and possibility dinner. Waitress was vey nice and checked on us.

This Macaroni Grill was downright scary. It was dirty and the manager was sweating through his shirt! Ick.

Hawaii and prices....Paradise has its price and you do have to pay to get food items to the Islands. That said, Romano's is good food and the price is cheaper than other restaurants. It is arguable not fine dining, but the... More

You don't bring your own wine, you have to BUY there and that depends on the type of wine you buy $30-to probably hundreds. They are priced the same as any other Macaroni Grill, it's a chain. It's reasonable. But nothing... More
