Good value for your money

Carrabba is off course no a sophisticated place, but if you want good Italian food for a very reasonable place this is where you should go. Service is good, portions generous and seating is quite nice. Yes this combination makes for a very busy place and you might have to wait a few minutes for a... read more

Stopped in for "Happy Hour" at the bar side of the restaurant. The bartender was great, took time to explain new dishes, recommendations for their new happy hour app's. Tried 3 of their app's all which were excellent and their drink specials were great as well. Will definitely come back again. One of the best Carrabba's we have been too...

Upon arrival the greeter was friendly and asked if we preferred a booth or table, which we were immediately shown to. The waitress took our drinks order as she provided us with menus and also warm bread and oil. The menu was extensive and following useful help from our waitress, we made our selection which were very good indeed, hot... More

We went there for my wife's birthday last weekend. Several of our party ordered veal and were served 3 pieces of veal about 2" x 4". My wife had Salmon which was tasty but cost $21.79. I had spagetti and Sausage and it was just okay. After we were served our entrees we did not see our waitress for a... More

My husband and I had dinner here while on vacation in FL. We had never been to a Carrabba's before, but we will definitely try it again, since we were very pleased with both the food and the service. Chase was our server. He was enthusiastic, helpful, and attentive. We had the prosciutto and arugula pizza, which was very different... More

We had 2 of the small plates for appetizers: one was asparagus wrapped in crispy prosciutto and drizzled with balsamic glaze. What a treat. Bruschetta was good. I had pasta Wheezie which was fettuccine (freshly made) with about eight large shrimp in an Alfredo/Lemon sauce. It was very, very good. My husband had a grilled chicken breast with some inventive...

We enjoy dining out several times each week and we are international travelers. We have grown tired of chain or brand restaurants long ago.....with the exception of Carrabba's Italian Grill. Adam C was our waiter for dinner and the service and food were excellent! We enjoyed Chicken Bryan and The Johnny (Chicken Bryan and a Marsala Steak combo). Accompanying the... More

I ordered chicken parm in a pomadora sauce. When the dinner arrived, it was two chicken patties, no sauce with sliced green beans! The dinner was NOT what I expected and was cold. The waiter was eager to satisfy me, and brought back some sauce which was ice cold! Took back the green beans and never came back with the... More

We had a party of eight visit on a Wednesday night and, while we didn't have a reservation, we were seated immediately. Our server, Shaun from Atlanta, appeared quickly and was very friendly. Unfortunately Shaun kept disappearing leaving us wondering if he would return. We waited quite a long time to order. After asking for bread Shaun stated that there... More
