    Best food I have ever eaten in my life!!! I suggest if your with a group that everyone get something different and everyone get small plates and taste everything. We went twice in one day and then back the next day...just so we could try something different. Not disappointed...worth every penny and the staff was friendly and amazing at suggesting what to get.

    We had a reservation and been anticipating eating this for about a month. We ordered the seafood mac n cheese. To our surprise - it was bland with no seasoning, lobster was so overcooked that you couldn't get it out of the shell and there was a lack of cheese throughout. The seafood was also on top of the mac n cheese. We also ordered a side of broccoli - it was so burned that you tasted the char in your mouth. The waitertress advised that had been through the broiler twice. Lastly, the only dessert left at 730 pm was carrot cake. Completely disappointed and to go eat elsewhere.

    Our family went there before walking around Winwood arts area. The food was delicious and fun. Great Mac and cheese. Turkey burger was yummy. Big Caesar salad to share. Our waiter was the grandson of the original owner. He told us the heartwarming story of his family and this business. We enjoyed a great lunch.

    It was our first time there and first time in Miami. Not a cool experience to have to look at the menu only by scrolling at your cell phone. For a tourist destination, the servers could do a better job of explaining where all the Mac options in the menu online are organized, as it is not intuitive. For example, for the actual Mac dishes you have to scroll all the way down after beverages and desserts. But the owner cares about the customers and visits table by table regularly to make sure everything is well. He’s nice and friendly. Lastly, throughout Miami, 18% of service charge will be automatically included, regardless of your customer service experience, so be aware not to accidentally triple-tip de server, as you’ll encounter an additional line on the check for gratuity; my husband in this case accidentally left an additional 10% on top of the default 18%.

    God damn. The chef at this place is a legend in my eyes. Best food I’ve ever had in my life. The Mac and cheese is creamy and delicious, the pasta is outta this world, and the lemonade blends are amazing. Everything at House of Macs is well worth the price you pay and the little amount of time it takes for your food to be cooked is actually unbelievable. Take your lady here and she’ll never forget it.

    The Mac was ok, I thought it would have tasted a lot better especially for the price. The chicken was covered in feathers so we had to send it back. Was on vacation so we expected more. The owner and server was very friendly.

    Where do I start. Our server Butterfly. Yes Butterfly was so welcoming and nice and made suggestions as it was our first time there and did not disappoint. The cornbread literally melts in your mouth that we ordered it again. The BBQ Mac and cheese and the pizza was the best ever, it was flavorful creamy and delicious. The music was great, it was a mix of great old and new and they had a DJ. We enjoyed the food the mimosas the ambiance and we will definitely be back.

    I was on vacation and was told to visit The House of MAC. I was really disappointed at this location and may try another before saying no. The mac and cheese I ordered was really good. The reason I rated the experience low is because they were out of everything I wanted (beer, cocktails amongst other things) to the point I asked if they were just opening that location. The server was sweet, but did not appear to know what she was doing. She never told us that we could only split our ticket in half. We had 14 people having lunch. It was ridiculous how we had to split the check and she was no help. The appetizers were good, so it has potential. Improve the ambiance, I expected it to be more lively and fun. I may recommend to try a different location.

    We visited here while visiting Miami. They had music playing loud but it was no bother to me just putting the information out the for others the vibe was chill it wasn’t very crowded at all.. the traditional five cheese Mac and cheese bowl added chicken and my date had the jerk chicken Mac and cheese we honestly could’ve gotten one bowl and shared it we both had half left. Both bowls could’ve used a little more chicken since it was additional fee for chicken I came across maybe 6-7 pieces of chicken We also had some chicken wings they were very flavorful and good so overall experience was good! I would recommend and I would go again when visiting Miami
