We have eaten here several times. The food is served warm but not hot. The food is good but not excellent. Very noisy. Somewhat over priced in my opinion.

We had a gift card for our anniversary. The food was excellent. We both add a shrimp and scallop dinner. Dessert , especially the apple dumpling with ice cream was really tasty. Service was excellent as well as the manager checking to see if everything was being taken care of.

Five girlfriends went here for lunch and loved it. Two had been before and three had not, but everyone liked their food. Ariel, our server, was awesome! Will definitely go back.

Food is excellent. Family favorites Chicken Bryan, Chicken Marsala & Chicken Parmesan. Wish the half portions were still available. A lot of food to eat or guaranteed leftovers! Rachel is a great waitress. We will wait for a table in her section. Favorite restaurant with our college kids!

We like Carrabba's either when we are on the road or eating out locally. The menu is varied with lots of really good choices. Something for everyone, and all very tasty. If you are a fan of shrimp and scallops, try the Spedino dish -- really good. Their wine list is actually decent for a chain restaurant with enough selections... More

We went with our Italian family. If Grandma (100 percent Italian) likes it, then it must be good. The salads were fresh and very good. The bread was gobbled up rather quickly. The iced tea was fresh as was the coffee. Service was great. The vegetarians had choices, but not many. Our waitress even let us know that some of... More

Though this is a chain, the food is slightly above avg but at below avg pricing if one gets their specials. Service was upbeat and engaging.

As an Italian, I can say without any reservation that Carrabba’s is the real deal! My wife and I have enjoyed great meals each and every time we've visited. A decent wine menu, side dishes, and a variety of main dishes. We like that something new is added to the menu. You will enjoy and return for more!

It was there so we went. It was the typical loud, overly busy place. Location is convenient to shopping and xway which keeps it busy.

I went here with a friend for lunch. The place looked closed from the outside when we went but we got service immediately. The selection is pretty good and the food was great.
