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

The restaurants new asst mgr, a mixed-race chap... 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

I had come twice to this location, it went well, we were seated more quickly than other restaurants in the area. It was a nice atmosphere. The price tag was high but it was good food, little portions.

We went on a Monday night for the $14 special, which actually starts at $14, raises to $15, and then $18 depending on what you order. We both ordered the $15 Chicken Carrabba which came with a choice of appetizer or dessert and salad. Actually, we got quite a bit of food for the price because the regular menu price... More

We went to this restaurant for a family occasion and had high hopes based on good experiences at other Carrabba's locations. The meal started well with warm bread, but quickly went downhill -- first one person got the wrong dressing for their salad. Another person ordered spaghetti with meat sauce and was shocked when it looked like there was about... More

Servicable dinner at a local suburban restaurant. Good service, reasonable if uninspired food preparation, reasonable prices. Carrabba's is a small notch above Olive Garden, the Italian analog to Outback (which owns them, there's one next door).
