This is a chain Restaurant, so it is not an upscale Italian place. But it is very nice, and “far better than Olive Garden” – as many of our friends have pointed out. We come here a few times a year – generally for lunch...More

Carrabba's is solid. They have a time-tested formula and it works. There's nothing too fancy. There are no nightly specials. Their servers are usually well-trained and the food is served hot. They offer some standard Italian fare like Chicken Parm along with some of their...More

Nearly every Sunday afternoon we go to this Carrabba's for dinner. The food is consistently great as is the service. In particular, a server named Danielle is extraordinary; friendly, attentive and our order is always exactly right. We look forward to each meal there as...More

The best meal around. Soup is to die for...a little kick. Please get a glass of blackberry sangria to start, then buy a pitcher!!! You will NOT be disappointed.

I have had dinner at other Carrrabba's in the past. This location has become my go-to spot for meeting an old friend for lunch. It's a good mid-point location because he comes across from the shore and I come up from the Princeton area. I...More

I love this place! House dressing (creamy parm) on a salad is excellent. We actually come here because of the house salad :) I usually get Fettuccine Carrabba, my husband usually gets spaghetti Bolognese or Chicken Parm and we are always happy. Sangria is good...More
