Happy hour goodies starting at $5 (in the lounge and bar only): Crispy Mozzarella; Mac and Cheese Bites; Zucchini Fritti; Goat Cheese Stuffed Peppadew Peppers; and Tomato Bruschetta

Happy football Sunday, Dining Out readers! It’s the third week in the NFL season, and about the time sports fanatics settle into their pregame rituals, which include filling up and pumping up on game-time eats. Luckily for all football fans, Romano’s Macaroni Grill is throwing a great pass for diners to score big with.

All-day happy hour is now available on game days. “If there is a televised football game, then we offer allday happy hour the day of the game — college or pro,” says Romano’s Hawaii corporate chef Nawai Kekoolani.

He mentions that this is a great way to enjoy the games without breaking the bank. Romano’s has all the game-day necessities, from filling bites to refreshing spirits and fine wines. The only “catch?” Diners must sit in the lounge and bar area.

No game? No problem! The restaurant still satisfies with daily happy hour from 3 to 6 p.m., and then again from 8 to 10 p.m.


Romano’s Macaroni Grill meets everyone’s cravings with the perfect happy hour offerings. Featured on the menu are tasty Tomato Bruschetta on toasted bread, comforting Crispy Mozzarella, the childhood-favorite-turned-poppable-snack of Mac and Cheese Bites, unique Goat Cheese Stuffed Peppadew Peppers, and crispy Zucchini Fritti. Splurge with these savory bites, and more, starting at $5 a dish. Romano’s Hawaii corporate chef Nawai Kekoolani says it’s a real steal since these items are practically half off the regular menu prices.
