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

I used to crave Carrabba's. I would whine until my wife and I would go. But...that was then...this is now; They redesigned the restaurant and spent a lot of money to make it a bit more fancy. Well, money spent is money saved on other things like food quality, food quantity and I guess service. It's kinda sad really. I... More

Our evening meal was excellent, the server we had, bent over backwards to ensure my elderly mother-in-law, who at times can quite picky, was satisified. The management and staff of this Carrabba's, are always on top of their game and have made every experience we have had there, enjoyable. Thanks to all of you.

While the food quality is always pretty consistent at Carrabba's the portions seem to be getting smaller and smaller. I get the economy dictates this some but if you want to keep your patrons you need to not hit them in the wallet or stomach every time.
