Great food and service. The best part they have gluten free menu and the food was great. The server was very pleasant and friendly. We had about a 15 minute wait which is not too bad.

Warm bread with the Creamy Parmesan dressing spread was so good. Great fresh house salads. I had Veal Parmesan. Large entree that would feed 2 people. Husband had Lasagna that was excellent. Large portions and great service. Kids had spaghetti with meat sauce and Alfredo. Good size portions in kids meal as well! We were in a hurry and they... More

Carrabbas deserves its positive reviews as it consistently provides good food and excellent service. We sat at the bar where the staff were both most professional and extremely attentive. Good for Kirsty in the absence of Annie. We enjoyed the superlative mussels as starters followed by salad and the delightful spicy sausage soup. Our mains of sirloin and cioppino respectively...

My husband and two friends went to this restaurant last evening for dinner and drinks. Although the food was perfectly acceptable, it was the service that really was outstanding. Everyone from the hostess to our waitress was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. For example, I was on my way to the ladies' room when the hostess came over and held the... More

We've eaten at this Carrabba's numerous times and the food and service are always quite adequate. I usually try not to frequent chains (preferring "Mom and Pop" / locally owned places more), uit we have friends who want to eat no where else, so we meet them here.

I contacted the owner of this restaurant, Clint, via phone and email a few months in advance to make arrangements for a party of approximately 25 guests. The bride and groom were able to meet with him to select items from the menu that they wanted for their rehearsal dinner. Special menus were made and a semi-private space was set... More

Great service and good food. A little heavy on the garlic I felt. The staff sang for the birthday girl and were very kind. We all enjoyed our meal and the service!

We stopped by for lunch, nice and clean inside, nice decor and very good service. Unfortunately no bang for your buck here. I do not mind spending good $$$$, for a good good meal. Unfortunately, I ordered asparagus wrapped in italian ham. The asparagus was the thinnest I have ever seen. Just 4 tiny baby twigs. The flavor was good,... More
