The restaurant was crowded so we sat at the bar. A very generous 4-7 pm happy hour even on Friday and Saturday. Food was delicious and prices were good. We will go back.

Excellent service at this location. Unfortunately, the Ramsey location closed a few weeks ago. Our Bonus e-gift card was expiring so we visited Wayne. The chicken scallopine entree was delicious. We enjoyed the $25 Valentine special which included a few choices of an appetizer, an entree, and cake for dessert. All was delicious. Husband ordered lamb chops which he enjoyed... More

My husband and I ate here the other night. It was pretty empty when we got there. Our server Dave was very good and attentive. My husband ordered the spaghetti and meatballs. He said the meatballs were dry and there wasn't enough sauce. I had the shrimp pomedero which I thought was very good. So one of us liked it... More

We arrived and were seated right away. The restaurant was quiet empty. We were asked if we wanted wine, when I was the only taker the other people at the table were asked what they would like to drink. Our server 'Diana" was always pleasant but almost absent.

We were there on a Sunday. The place was dead, but the service was so slow. The kettle and club was missing the kettle and it still took forever. The wait staff were hanging out in groups talking every time I turned around. The food was average. We won't be going back anytime soon.

Macaroni Grill is always a good choice for lunch or dinner. The menu doesn't vary much, but there are usually a few specials. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable and it is a good place for friends to get together.

Took my mom there for her 90th. Brought nine people there to celebrate. She has a rollater and they gave us a great coner table. Everyone had different things and they were all delicious. Went at lunch time and the prices were very reasonable. Good food nice atmosphere.

As a Macaronni Grill virgin, I enjoyed the food and atmosphere of this establishment. Our waiter, Jonathan M was wonderful. He was able to steer us in the right direction for our food choices and was quite attentive!!

Years ago, the food and service at this restaurant was quite special. Nowadays, everything from here is just plain average. Maybe they just don't cook anything with passion. The salads, pastas, and pizza all seem to be lacking flavor. Service has also slid compared to where they used to be.
