OK. So it's a chain...but it's a really good one! The management of this place is great, servers prompt and courteous and the cooks are fun to watch...There are even seats overlooking the food prep area if you want to watch while you eat. The menu has something for everyone and the prices are quite reasonable. I love the Chicken... More

We love many dishes at Carrabbas and cannot decide what to order 1/2 the time because of this. So we often end up ordering The Johnny. It is ALWAYS out of this world! You get a good size portion of your favorite foods on one plate. Great fresh hot bread, chicken breast, steak, and I get the spaghetti with meet... More

We went with another couple who we haven't seen for a while. The food and chianti was wonderful. Our server was one of the best we've had in a long time. What made it special was we stayed chatting for 30 minutes after they were closed and they didn't push us out the door. Well done

We go here somewhat often with friends and always have a good meal, not stellar but always good. Service is very good, sometimes have to wait for a table because it is always busy, that has to tell you something too! Have had most things on the menu and usually have the Tag Pic Pac with scallops. My favourite.

My husband and I don't get to go out very often, but when we do, it's to Carrabbas. We have had nothing but very good service as well. Our waiter suggested a few things, which was spot on for what we wanted. This is definitely our favorite place to go, kids or not!

This was not a good evening. Right from the start it was evident that it was short staffed. Waited approximately fifteen minutes to see a server. We waited for everything. Food was just okay. Will not be returning.

This was so so so so so bad. I usually have great service there. We went for my 51st Birthday because the food is usually so good. It was awful. You could tell the ravioli was frozen, and my nieces chicken was burnt. I asked for the scallops with no butter, well, they took that to an extreme.. they were... More

Yes, it is a chain, but this is a bit upgraded compared to others out there. The fresh bread on the table with their fantastic herb mix for dipping is great. Started wit the new Arancini appetizer . Had 2 small crispy breaded bites that were mixed with risotto,fennel sausage, red bll peppers and cheese, came with their marinara sauce... More

This restaurant is inconsistent. Sometimes the food tastes fresh. Other times, it tastes like it's just been reheated. Flavor varies too.
