We were there early so not very many tables in use. The food was good but the server seemed cool. I was surprised to find out that the restaurant no longer has senior or veterans discounts.

I recently had a business meeting and Carrabba's was my choice. The service was superb, the food quite good, and the server's knowing when to stay away was spot on! Thanks for the lovely space to work out a deal!
