The lunch menu is limited so it is best to go for dinner unless you are willing to settle for just lunch. Dinner is good and always arrive hot and steaming and any problems can be quckly resoled by asking for a manager, but it rarely comes to that.

I usually try to avoid chain restaurants & seek out local, independent ones, but this was the place of choice prior to a quiz night at my brother & sister-in-law's local pub. While the food was perfectly acceptable, it obviously didn't make an impression on me as 2 weeks later I can't remember what I had! I do remember the... More

Wow after getting food 20 minutes late, having to park and walk and having to wade through a crowd of @40 people (just at takeout) to get to food; I still gave 5 stars. This restaurant was crushed but I received my order with 0 errors, prepared exactly as expected and good as always. Thank you for a great experience... More

Went to first nice dinner in a while with daughter and wife. Called ahead and got seated right away at 530 on a Friday. Room was crowded and a bit "close". Service was fine. Wife had shrimp wrapped in prosciuotto (?sp) over a small pasta and daughter had lobster ravioli. Both were good. I ordered veal chop and asparagus, side... More

Had the sirloin steak and I'm glad I ordered the 6 oz medium rare because it was so tough it was difficult to cut with a steak knife. Loaded with gristle and fat, garlic mashed were barely acceptable. The chicken soup was good and so was the service provided by our server. I remember when Carrabba's opened years back and... More

First visit to a Cararabba's. We were promptly greeted & seated by a courteous hostess in a large, crowded & noisy dining area that made table talk difficult. Bread was served promptly & the Calamari appetizer was very good. Side salads were pedestrian. We ordered 4 different meals which were served at the same time and were very generous in... More

Carrabba's menu is now very limited and food is only average. To save money napkins for dinner are cocktail size; unbelievable. They will give you more than one of the tiny napkins. Frozen dinners better for less. Will not return.

We've been eating there at least once a week since they opened. So long we've made some great friends because their staff is that friendly. Everything prepared fresh from scratch in their kitchen behind the kitchen you can see. Totally explains why the food taste sooooooo good. It will always be our favorite eat out place near home.

Thank Mike Y
