We arrived at 12:30 pm on a Saturday for lunch. The place was nearly empty, but the hostess tried to put us at a small table in the farthest corner of the restaurant by the rear exit door. I stopped her and said I will sit at a booth. When we first walked in we saw two large banners outside... More

This Carrabba's had the same manager for years and I think he must have run a tight ship because we had nothing to complain about. He was always present, frequently stopping by tables to see how everything was. We hadn't been in maybe 6 months and when we returned, things were quite different (new mgr). Things are slower, some parts... More

The food and the menu are very varied and classic Italian. Our server Tanya was exceptional. She deserved the big tip she received. We were 6 adults and 4 children. I had the panko coated chicken with arugula. Excellent. Had enough for the next day.

This was by far the worst meal I have ever had. I had some form of fried cheese ball. They were burned and greasy. I also had the Margerita Pizza. It was a mess on this crust that looked like a large cracker. The service was excellent but the food was just awful and very, very expensive. I will not... More

My friend and I went on a Monday evening to take advantage of their specials. We split an appetizer. For an entrée we both had Tuscan Sirloin and sautéed spinach as well as a salad. For dessert we split the Brûlée Cheesecake. Everything was delicious and done perfectly. We were also there during Happy Hour which was a plus. I... More

Authentic Italian but not overpowering menu items. Minestrone soup is ideal. Steak, pasta, salads are outstanding. Olive oil with bread basket is awesome.

I have become quite the fan of Carrabba's. I am usually (sometimes unfairly so) skeptical of any chain restaurants, especially Italian chains. However, my meals at Carrabba's are always tasty and satisfying! They have a lot of great options on their menu. Their food tastes freshly made, as opposed to reheated. I also really like their cocktail menu! Recommended dishes:... More

For a chain restaurant, Carrabba's is particularly good. The drinks are excellent and the food is even better. Our table tried a variety of dishes and everyone was very happy with their choices. Excellent food and excellent service.

I love the whole fresh concept of Carrabba's. I am anxious to try their new revised menu but until then one of my current favorites is their Chicken Bryan. On this particular occasion we ordered appetizers only and were very pleased. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating and the food is very tasty. I have to drive over an... More
