The portions are not the greatest for the price. Food tasted good but same as any other Italian restaurant. Nothing to write home about for sure.

I've eaten three times here in the last 5 months and the food has been terrible. First the soup was lukewarm and I had to send it back. The waitress said that it was strange because she watched them dip it out of the pot! Lukewarm out of the pot!? I ordered the Steak Marsala because it has always been... More

We went to Carrabba's to celebrate my birthday. We called ahead for seating and when we arrived, we were immediately taken to a nice booth. Our waitress was outstanding--so friendly and knowledgeable! We experienced no long waits, as I read about in previous reviews. Everything from the drinks, to the salads, to the main course, dessert, and check were delivered... More

Stopped for dinner, hoping for the usual Carrabbas excellent experience. We got it, and in a busy crowd. Service was top-notch, food as well. Will remember this one when we travel through again.

James and Tara welcomed us to this chain restaurant that seemed more like a 5 STAR restaurant with service that exceeded any expectation and was simply amazing, as if we were family . From the minute we walked through the door until we left, the graciousness of staff, the excellent service and the outstanding food left us wondering if this... More

Went to Carrabas tonight and asked waiter about wine special. He told us it was wine which had almost reached "expiration date". He clearly was trying to upsell us but telling us anything being served was not fresh did not start us in good place. When food came I was asked if I wanted cheese on anything. I said I... More

Went here recently with 2 friends... the waiter did accidentally spill water on me about 3 times but he gave us a lot of bread so I really cannot complain. The spaghetti with sauce was good, however the "chicken parm lasagna" was just 4 pieces of small chicken stacked on top of one another.. strange!
