Nice!

This was our first visit and an enjoyable experience. It was not real busy when we arrived but soon filled up. We were seated not far from the serving area and were impressed that someone was checking each plate before it went out. Service was average, for example we were not offered bread and... read more

Anytime we want Italian for dinner....there's no doubt that it's Carrabba's. Don't go when you're extremely hungry though. You will Always wait at least a half hour for seating. 30-60 minutes on the weekend nights. (F-Sat-Sun). There isn't anything on the menu that isn't worth trying. My husbands choice Every time...the Pasta Weezie.

The sirloin steak we had was very tender and prepared perfectly. Service was great! Lighting was a dark and it was hard to see the menu. Our son saw someone using a flashlight.

Carrabba's is one of those places that runs the risk of being put in the chain category and being dismissed. While it is a chain, they somehow pull off being fresh and good every time. I thoroughly enjoy going there for any meal.

Some friends of mine threw me a suprise birthday dinner at Carrabba's over the weekend, and the food that we all ordered was really good. It's been quite some time since I've been to Carrabba's to eat, and I really enjoyed the food. They are priced reasonable and I wouldn't mind going back again.

Will start off by saying that I really like this location and have been here many many times over the years. My family and I come here quit often. We went a few nights ago and I ordered "The Johnny". I ordered in medium but it came well. No matter because it still tasted pretty good. The reason that I... More
