Carrabba's is a well known and respected deliverer of good food, good wine and good service. We were surprised to have our good food, wine and service tempered by the musty odor of what looked like a long-overdue carpet cleaning. We will return again but won';t stay next time if that carpet is not replaced or cleaned!!

This was my first time here. Yes, apparently I'm sheltered; however, it was a very pleasant experience. The chicken soup was incredible. I'd go back just for that.

One does not visit a Carrabba's for ambiance; nonetheless, the service is usually good and the food made from fresh ingredients. A few new items have been added to an otherwise unchanged-over-the-years menu - not that this is a bad thing: one knows what to expect and one's favorites are always available and prepared the way one expects. The Grilled... More

We had very uneven service Fri. July 1 at 5:30. First off, they had no record of our online wait list request. Fortunately it was not yet busy so we were seated right away. A waitress greeted us shortly after & said she would be taking care of us but she never showed up again. A waiter finally came to... More

We have been here before and enjoyed it so were looking forward to a nice relaxing meal. Boy what a disappointment this time. First the good - they have the zucchini appetizer back - ordered that and it was very good. But that and the bread were the best things about our meals. I had the shrimp spiedino with the... More

I visit at least twice a month and over the past couple of months it seems to be going down hill in terms of quality. Both from a service aspect and a food aspect things do not seem to be like they were in years past. Carry out experience specifically has not been up to par -- long waits ....... More

I last ate here about a year ago. On that visit, I raved about our server, Margaret. I ate here again with my wife recently on a Tuesday evening, We were seated immediately. Coincidentally, Margaret was our server again. Within 2 minutes of being seated, Margaret came over with our menus and to take our drink order. A few minutes... More

Seems the locals surround the bar for a nice time after work. It was a pleasant surprise to be here on business & be welcomed by the locals for dinner!!

Frequently eat here. The food is excellent, the portions have been downsized and the prices up sized. The sangria is tasty, but lots of ice...house Salad with Bleu cheese crumbles is to die for
