Love the quality of food and wait staff service. The Host/Hostess service was unacceptable in that we were not greeted or spoken to besides asking "how many?"

Went to celebrate my husband's birthday as a treat by our best friends. Lentil and sausage soup was very filling and tasty. Salads were big portions. Flatbread with goat cheese was tasty. Chicken Bryan was delicious. Sauteed spinach with garlic was very good. I think the bread could have more more interesting like we recently had at Cheesecake Factory. I... More

Carrabbas may be a chain restaurant but you will not hold that against them. We are always happy with our servers and the food is always what we expect it to be. Lots of variety and the prices seem to hold even when prices are going up at the grocery store. When someone asks, "where do you want to go... More

Its nothing like you see on TV. Not even close. The food is prepared by non experienced workers who have NO idea how to cook Italian food. Sauces are raw, just heated out of can then highly seasoned and served. Most Pizza stores make better Italian food. That's not saying much. Don't waste your money.

For $14.99 not much food. Kids meal looked bigger. Will not go back for a meal. They use to be great with proportions. Everything is smaller for same... More

My son picked this place for his bday dinner, as it is his favorite. Everything was very good! I got a steak with mushroom sauce and wish I had gotten Chicken Bryan like normal as that is better!

We are in the area for two weeks and we're getting a bit full of the usual American burger bars, steak houses etc. so we stopped at this Italian grill and had absolutely excellent meals at great value. The service was excellent, quick and friendly. We will definitely be making a return visit while we are here.

Carrabbas has always been a fave of our family..not sure what has happened, but the last few visits have been a marked disappointment! Pasta was soggy, with a spoonful of sauce dumped on top. Salmon was served lukewarm, no searing & dry. I had to ask for the tomato basil topping. The bread was undercooked & doughy. Such a shame...

Having had a really bad experience at another Carrabba's just a few weeks ago, we were really hesitant when the group of friends that we were meeting decided they wanted to go to Carrabba's. However, we were going for the visit with friends...that was the most important part of our visit. We were pleasantly surprised to find that this location... More
