Decided to try Carrabba's instead of going to Olive Garden which was a lot closer. Wife and I enjoy our entries, too full for desert. We will go again!! The service was also VG and friendly. Did I mention the bread and oil, YUM

Carrabba's delivers consistently good food at fair prices. Service is quick and food quality is above average for Italian. I recommend sitting at the kitchen bar and watching preparations.

My husband and I were both disappointed in the food we were served, which was poorly prepared, not fresh, and bland. Even though there were very few customers in the restaurant, our server was gone for long periods of time, and we had to ask other servers to refill our water glasses and go find our server. This was one... More

Happen to be in the Hunt Valley area and found this Carrabba's. My Husband and I were out for a relaxing meal and got it. I got the Grilled Chicken with garlic mashed potatoes and a mediterrane salad with the house dressing. This is a "retired salad" but they had the fixings to do it but not the dressing anymore....

They need more pasta/vegetable/healthy dishes on their menu. Wouldn't go back. Service OK but the food was very processed and compared with last time we went portions were smaller and the food was not as good.

The calamari was over-breaded and bland; drinks seemed weak; the dinners were good, but nothing to write home about.

For the past few years we have had the good fortune to dine with some good friends at Carrabba's in Hunt Valley, MD. Very good Italian food, lots to eat, and very reasonable prices. Looking forward to returning in 2015.

Yeah, it's a chain. Yeah, it's damn good. Not much more to say than that. I love the chicken bryan and steak madeira combo.

We haven't visited a Carabbas in years, but decided on a whim to go celebrate there this past Thursday night. We arrived at around 8:15 and were seated immediately. The place had about 12 guests when we arrived and a lit of wait staff roaming around. Despite the sparseness of customers, another table was seated right next to us, so... More

Traveling on business, the group went to Carrabba's for dinner. There were six of us, but the way we were greeted, you would have thought there were 500! The restaurant wasn't crowed and there were plenty of seats, yet they looked at us like there was only one table, maybe, available! The food was typical Carrabba's.
