Three couples and a couple of kids went for Sunday lunch. We had to wait 10 minutes for table to be set up. Our drink order was taken and our food order was then taken. Slow but not too bad. But, then we waited and waited. So, we were in the restaurant for about 1 1/2 hrs. Most of the... More

We loved the food. The service was perfect. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. When we told him it was my sister's birthday, he said they could sing to her in Italian. We expected the usual..but, boy were we wrong! She sang so beautifully!! I don't know if this is something they have availability all the time or we were... More

Stopped here on the way home from the airport for an early dinner. Seated promptly. Service was outstanding. We both had the mama's combination plates. More food than we could ever eat but made a great lunch the next day. The chicken parm was among the best that I have had, crispy but not overdone and tender and moist on... More

Visited the restaurant with friends, awful service, waiter more interested in the bigger table next to us who arrived after us, simple things, no side plates for bread, no water refills, always an excuse, no tip, no wonder the chain is closing restaurants.

The food is just average, nothing special. The cocktails were expensive for this type of family restaurant and weren't very good. The shrimp scampi was very tasty and I love the bread.

We eat her a few times a year. The food is always excellent and the service is good. This visit was for lunch with the office staff. We allowed extra time so it was fine. They have the quick menu but if you order off the regular menu it will take some time. But it is worth the wait.

In the area on business and noticed this restaurant. Most in our area have closed. Walked in on a Monday night and most tables were open, still took more than 5-10 minutes to get seated. Food was good-I had the grilled salmon. Salad was average. The service was good but still surprised at the lack of attention when the restaurant... More

The atmosphere was nice as usual. The great thing about eating there on Thursday nights is any bottle of wine is 1/2 price. That was the good part. The food quality was nothing like it was in the past. Nothing that 3 of us ate tonight rated over a C-. Some food was coated in so much butter and oil... More

I will not spend much time on this review, seeing that many before me felt the same way. We were seated and it took too long for the waitress to get to us. The bread did not taste good, as most Macaroni Grill's have wonderful tasting bread. It took forever for us to get our food and it was bland... More
