We went to Macadams for lunch on 11/12, here is my review: bad food, bad service. The turkey noodle soup: The noodles tasted like they were straight out of a top ramen package, and the soup was barely warm. It was so chunky, my sister referred to it as, ""dog food."" The grilled cheese sandwhich: bread was dry and you could taste the burn marks from the grill, no butter or olive oil or anything was used to grill it. The cheese: dry (although the cheeses they chose to put in it are naturally on the dryer side), no flavor. Our friends were not impressed with their food either (breakfast burrito which was mainly egg), my husband said his burger was OK. Service: Our waitor didn't know what the soup of the day was, nor what the sandwich special for the 1/2 sandwich/soup/salad was. Instead of finding out for me, he stood there for a while explaining, ""well, they just put the soup out, so I don't know what it is yet...I'm just not sure. The sandwich special changes every week, so I don't know what it is..."" blah blah blah--as if he wasn't going to find out for me. I just stared at him until he said he'd go find out. (didn't mean to put him out.) Lastly, after paying our bill, we ended up sitting at the table for a good 30 mins longer as our conversation continued. Had they been full and people waiting, we would've been out of there, but this was not the case. When we did leave, a blonde waitress walked by us on the way out and said sarcastically, ""And they leave..."" I couldn't believe it. We will NEVER go back, nor would we ever recommend this place considering the vast variety of other [awesome] Portland bar and grill options.
