The menu choices are always varied and appetizing at Carrabbas. We had decent service and the plates were filling.

It has a nice atmosphere, and they have a wood stove where they do some of the cooking, but to me, this just adds a nice but not too invasive aroma to the restaurant. It's nicely decorated and we were comfortable in our small booth for two. The booth had been set up for four, and that would have been... More

We went to Carrabba's late last night. Let me start by saying that Carrabba's is one of our favorite go-to restaurants, but our choices for entree last night were not as good as we usually get. My wife decided to try their chicken parm. She had good chicken parm at two other local Italian restaurants and wanted to give Carrabba's... More

I love Carrabba's and have visited this location on a few occasions. I have always been seated relatively quickly, even when there was a crowd, and they now have "call ahead" (well, click ahead, as its web-based) seating, which should make it even more convenient. The food is always tasty, the service is always average to good, and the prices... More

Had a party of 14- 3 servers. It took forever to get drinks. Food was served reasonably quickly. Servers were good just overworked - not enough working the room. I ordered Shrimp Risotto - mediocre at best. had 4 shrimp in it and the risotto was bland. Not impressed and we will not return again. This was a birthday dinner.

I go to this carrabbas with a friend a lot and this was one of the not so good experiences we had. I want to first say that normally I love this place and have only had one meal there that I didn't care for. This time however was just bad. The wait was very long, okay no big deal... More

I've been to the Carrabba's in my home town in Colorado twice. They were the two worst restaurant experiences I've ever had, so I was very wary about this one, but had a very pleasant surprise. The service was excellent! I had the lasagna and loved it, but there's enough for two people to enjoy. My colleague had the salmon... More

Although we usually avoid chain restaurants this is an exception to our rule. We have visited this location several times over the last few months and have not been disappointed. My personal favorite is the grilled chicken topped with eggplant, prosciutto, and fontina cheese, all topped with a fig sauce. YUM! The sausage and lentil soup is tasty. Salads are... More
