Good food and service

While a chain still pretty good. We went early on a Friday and were seated immediately. They had recently changed the menu so had a few new items. We tried the wings as an appetizer and not bad; however they no longer have the zucchini fries which was our favorite ;( For dinner my husband had... read more

Pretty much all things in this restaurant are average. The fettuccine alfredo with shrimp had an uninspired sauce, but the shrimp and fettuccine were nicely cooked. The chicken was too salty, but otherwise fairly tasty. Service was average, but the restaurant was fairly busy, making it more difficult for the servers.

Chicken Arugula with a Caesar salad and Rusitco Siciliani was so tasty. Easy ordering online and then pull up, open window, get the food and on my way again. Quick, easy and really tasty food!

This is a very good family restaurant. We ate there on a Monday night and we got a prix fixe dinner menu for $12 that included an appetizer and/ desert and an entree. The bread and olive oil for dipping are excellent. Service was very good.

We very often eat at a Carrabba's when on holiday in the States but this is not, in our opinion, one of the better ones. We both chose pizzas - again we very often do so - but, whilst OK, they were definitely not as good as the pizzas we have enjoyed at Carabba's elsewhere. We had been looking forward... More

You think of Carrabba's in the same vein as say "Olive garden" or other Italian chains. i think they might have a leg up. The ambiance is inviting. The service albeit slow for my liking is at least attentive. And the food is consistent, if not a little pricey for this class of restaurant. But all in all I always... More

My wife and I decided to try this restaurant for dinner on the last Sunday in August. We arrived a little after 5:30 and there were already people waiting outside on the front porch and inside the lobby. The hostess said our wait would be about 30 minutes but, surprisingly, we were seated after about 12 minutes. Our server introduced... More

Had dinner here with my family. Walked in and did not have to wait for a table. Loved the Red Sangria, very tasty. Ask the server for a sample, will bring you one so you are sure you will like it, trust me you will. Ordered the grilled chicken breast and was very juicy and tasty.

We were tired after a long day of getting ready to move--so went out for dinner-only waited a few minutes but the very young, not very polite girl at the desk said a 20 minute wait-though you could see MANY empty tables from the entrance. I asked why and was told we have the space but we need wait staff... More
