I have eaten carrabba's in 4 different states and this is one of my favorites. I've eaten here 3 times and the first 2 were amazing, the last was not so great. Wait staff was slow and food not great as usual , but all places have a off night. I always recommend to friends , one of my favorite... More

Arrived on a Wednesday night. The parking lot was full and I was lucky to find an open space. However, I did not have to wait and was immediately ushered to a table. The waitress was friendly. The menu had changed since the last time I was there. They do offer several "specials" for a limited time only. I elected... More

Ate dinner here last night. We all had the big meatball dish. It was ok. Nothing to write home about. Dinner with tip was $70. Way too expensive for what we got. Service was fabulous. We were seated by the door which made our dinner very drafty. I was a little disappointed in the food to say the least. The... More

It really isn't a secret, except that our usual time is Sunday after church, and we never have to wait. The recent refurbishing of the restaurant--which we thought unnecessary because it was always very attractive--made the environment even better than ever. As light eaters, we always ask that an entree be split, and there has never, in our several years... More

We showed up about 8 pm on a Saturday night and the place was still packed. (no waiting for a table, though.) The service was quick and on point, the food was fresh and hot, and even though we took our time and were not rushed, we were still out of there in 40 minutes. (thats with soup/salad to begin,...

We missing the old carrabba's Italian style, it was more cozy and fashionable before they changed to the chain , the food its not bad since they have a nice grill, so you can see from you table how and who are cooking and prepare the food, the service always is friendly and fast even on the busiest days, I'd...

I just love this place. For a chain, I think Carrabba's has a great atmosphere and top-notch food. I also think it is reasonably priced for what you get. We were in town for the Ironman race and wanted a simple, safe meal. This was a perfect place for that. My wife and I each got grilled chicken and pasta.... More

My daughter and I used to love coming to this restaurant. With the menu changes, however, we don't go often anymore. Tonight, we decided to give Carrabba's a try again and it was a bit disappointing. Our salads were good--we had both Caesar and House salads at our table. Fresh, crisp lettuce and just the right amount of dressing too.... More

Went there because of the close proximity to my hotel and ordered Spaghetti with Bolognese saice. The restaurant was almost empty yet it still took a long time to get our food. When it arrived, I received a small bowl of plain spaghetti noodles topped with a couple tablespoons of sauce. The noodles were cooked perfectly but I had to... More
