During The Crush, these wines, plus some special offerings that are rolling off the old list, will be available at half-price by the glass or the bottle. For a full list of the wine offerings at Macaroni Grill, check out the restaurant's website. While this is a really good deal on some perfectly fine reds and whites, there is one disappointing bit of news.
At most Macaroni Grill location, they operate on an "on your honor system" when it comes to their house wine Chardonnay and Chianti blends. Ask for a jug of these wines, which are specially blended by the Placido winery in Tuscany, and your server will just leave the bottle behind.
You simply keep track by marking the number of glasses you pour yourself on the paper tablecloth with the provided crayon, and they'll charge you on you honor at the end of the meal. But alas, Tennessee law doesn't allow for that sort of serve-yourself system.
So in Tennessee, you either have to buy the whole jug or wait for a server to bring you a refill.
Since both Nashville-area Macaroni Grills are located at malls, and the holiday shopping season is approaching, that sort of self-serve system would sure have come in handy as I steel myself to fight the crowds.
