Hands-down my husband's favorite place for dinner, if he had his way we would eat at Carrabba's at least once a week (which usually happens, anyway). Carraba's simply offers a good dining experience: polite, efficient, skilled servers who know the menu; comfortable, roomy seating and a warm, friendly atmosphere - and I haven't even started on the food! The absolute... More

Food was very good, everything seemed fresh and made from scratch (or close enough to it); however, I wasn't terribly impressed with the portions. Service was good, but it has been better.

Fettucine was dry, asked for more bread-never delivered, the huge meatball special-ok but should have additional sauce on the side, chicken parm - to thick. Service, just ok.

I've been here a few times and the food and service have been good. It's a chain that is consistent and it has a decent variety to pick from.

This place has never disappointed me, and I'm pretty picky (see my other reviews) fresh bread at beginning is too good and warm (I don't like oil but they bring me butter!) stuffed mushrooms for app. highly recommend. Mahi is excellent, scallops are fantastic. Cool to watch them cook at the same time if you sit close enough. Keep up... More

In our party of five, we had a five and six year old and Courtney was so nice. Both kids had steak on the children's menu and unbelievable they served them their food correctly. Too many times we have seen the kids foods come out overcooked or thrown together. The chicken parm and other pasta dishes were also satisfying. This... More

Recently had lunch here with a client. I am not much for chain type restaurants, but I did enjoy the experience here. Do like they have a wood fired grill, even though we went simple for a soup and salad, and a soup and sandwich. The server was very attentive, but not pushy for a long business lunch. The food...

Went with hubby, was great. But better to byob. Wine is well above what you can get at the store. Must get a cheese cake, best you'll have.
