While staying at Waikalo Hilton, were given this restaurant as an option to go that didn't cost a ton of money. My daughter had pasta in a red sauce (kids menu) came with a soft drink and for an extra $1.00 a big bowl of ice cream. $9. I ordered their signature Parmesan crusted chicken salad with their special ranch... More

We went to dinner early and that was a good thing because this place is very busy. I had the chicken scallopine with pasta which had artichoke hearts and mushrooms. The flavoring on the chicken was tasty although the chicken was overdone - dry and hard. I ordered a caesar side salad which was the perfect complement to the meal.... More

Service was excellent; atmosphere, good; prices, fair, menu was somewhat standard Macaroni Grill. That is the good news. The cardboard pizza with tasteless sauced was disappointing. The other dishes we all had were better, but disappointing for a Macaroni Grill, but then again why come to Hawaii and eat at a chain Italian restaurant; that is a mistake.

While I Don't frequent the Macaroni Grill I was hoping they could do a decent pizza for takeout. It was probably the worst I have ever had. Dough was soggy and tasteless-I would not be surprised to learn it had been flown over from California. Looked like it had been formed by machine and probably frozen. Run to any other... More

We went to the Macaroni grill in Waikoloa because of the extremely High prices in the Hilton Waikoloa Village. I quit going to the Macaroni Grill because the quality of food is just getting worse and I should have know it wouldn't be any better.

Was similar to the chains elsewhere. Food was good and service was also good. Nice to be able to eat outside of the hotel. Open a little later so that was also good in an area that has limited food places. They also serve breakfast, but I didn't experience that. Only saw the menu that looked like there was a... More

Not good, starting with the crust. We ordered three different pizzas and it was such a disappointment. The crust was nothing like I had ever had - not fresh. I can't give you anything good about any of the pizzas. We thought we would have left overs for the following day but it all went in the garbage. Would eating... More

If your paying fine dining prices for Italian food it should be fresh. Macaroni Grill brings their food in packets from the mainland and steams them. Don't waste your time.

The Mac and cheese bites were absolutely delicious, the rest of the food was average and over priced. Over $5 to add a side salad to a $20 plate of pasta, give me a break.
