    We usually have great food when we come here. Tonight it wasn't the best. I ordered Bruchetta and the toast pieces were burnt. I also got a side of the asparagus. It was awful. It was so hard that it mine as well have been raw. I tried cutting it with a knife and I could barely cut it. When it did finally go through, it made a loud noise on the plate...that's how hard it was. They usually offer bread right away while waiting for our food. We had to ask for it mid meal. I didn't complain because I'm not that type of person and I feel bad. Our server was very polite, but everytime I went to ask him for a refill or something he was gone. He would come to hand us food and by the time I could get a word out, he was off doing other things. We sat at the bar area by the fire so the ambiance was nice.

    Understaffed kitchen on one of the busiest days of the year, Mothers Day. Party of 6. Two dinners were served a full 20 minutes before the rest of the meals. Unacceptable If workers called out sick or whatever on this day, tell them not to come back at all.

    Tasty chicken dishes, good selection of entrees and appetizers, Tasty desserts. Service was a little slow, but it was Mothers Day, and the restaurant was really busy. Waitstaff was very polite, and made a couple of good recommendations. Overall, very good, and would eat there again. Was what my stepmother specifically wanted for Mothers Day, and it was a nice meal and occasion.

    Josh was great as our server. The only down side was the loud noise from renovations being done. It would have been nice if they had ceased work during the dinner hour so we didn't feel like we were eating in a construction zone.

    Our server, Angie, was excellent and even sang happy birthday for us in the Italian language. Her voice was excellent and worthy of the stage!! Additionally, the make your own pasta option was fantastic. This particular MG is my favorite and expect it will continue to be.

    This is one of our favorite restaurants when passing through the Harrisburg area on I-81. We arrived at 6:00 and, to our surprise, the restaurant was quite full vs. our visit a month or two ago. I especially liked the stuffed mushroom caps appetizer. I would now suggest reservations for peak times due to the easing of COVID-19 restrictions.

    The Caesar salad was something I could have put together in my kitchen in about three minutes: romaine, a few croutons, and very little cheese. Dressing was on the side, which is ridiculous for a Caesar salad - it should be tossed in the dressing. Shrimp was overcooked and had no flavor. On top of that, the Macaroni Grill had the nerve to add a $2.00 "Inflation Fee" to our bill. The server was very polite and attentive, but the bottom line is we paid $70 for a crappy lunch. We won't be returning.

    Steak was tough. Waiter forgot almost everything we asked for. 1. No Lemon for water (specifically asked for it) 2. Salads - came with our dinner not beforehand 3. Forgot to bring A1 to the table 4. Waited for our check and processing far too long because he got too busy with other tables. 5. I asked for no potatoes with my meal since I'm on a special diet. The potatoes were on my plate. 6. He was nice tho!

    Was a fallback dinner option as many of the surrounding restaurants were booked for early dinner. Its been years since being at a macaroni grill but I was surprised at the service and quality of food. Definitely beats Carabas and Olive Garden. Awesome cocktails and the server was great “Nick”. Real pleasant and hard working dude. Ok one complaint and this is for management. Its time for an update. The booth benches and seats are horribly worn. I kept sliding over trying to find a spot that wasn’t sunken in. Tears in upholstery etc. if you guys refresh that Harrisburg location just a little you will be all 5 stars across the board again.

    Food was delicious but service was very slow. Waited 40 minutes to be seated with a reservation and then once seated it took 20 minutes to receive drinks and have order taken. After that the service finally became a better speed luckily.
