You can call ahead for seating I never have issues with the service or the food. We've even order out once. Same great food. I let my waiter know I'm "The Special... More

Had a nice dinner at Carrabba's in Bowie on a Monday night. The food was good, the service was good but the noise level was so loud you could not here the music playing or really hold a conversation. We shared a new bruschetta served hot in a cast iron skillet which was very good. The salad was fresh and... More

I've been a member of Tripadvisor for a while now but haven't gotten around to writing reviews on here like I should (I am a bit more prolific on yelp dot com) but you know how it is, you get one of those emails about the badges and they just happened to list a number of restaurants that I've actually...

We have eaten many times at different Carrabbas, but this time we ordered car side while staying near here. We ordered four small, individual sized pizzas which came to $48 and was so not worth it. I ordered the Margarita and it had so much black pepper I could barely eat it and did not enjoy it whatsoever. If it... More

I met my friend for dinner, we were sitted right away. We knew we were in for a long night when our server took about 15 mins to come over to the table to acknowledges us and to tell us she'll be right with us, which was about 10 mins later. She took our drink and appetizer order, the appetizers... More

I absolutely love this restaurant. The atmosphere is family-friendly and the food is great. They bring you hot rolls with cinnamon butter that melts in your mouth. I'm partial to their baby back ribs, but their prime rib is great too. In fact, you have to get there early because they sometimes run out. Great place.

Good food, good atmosphere. It was very easy to find, and was recommended by a relative. The meal was just the right size and delicious. Everyone liked what they ordered. The server and staff were very courteous and knowledgeable.

This place offers good quality wine selections, decent outdoor seating (overlooking rte. 301), and good quality food. My favorite is the wood-fired grilled chicken; it is no frills eating but well seasoned and cooked to perfection. If you have an opportunity, do order the pizza and skip dessert, go elsewhere for that.
