Pretty good for a chain restaurant

So, the food is not great, but it's good and ample. The service is usually good and the price is in line. If we want really good Italian, we go to a local family joint. On the road, Carrabba's is safe and predictible.

I think Carrabba's is headed down hill. Stopped in last night at this Carrabba's, Service was very good. Ordered the Chicken Marsala, The portion (I choose the small) was smaller than the palm of my hand with some noneddible green beans on the side. It was loaded with peppercorn and tasted nothing like a Marasala. I swear it looked like... More

If that dish is all that they served I would still go there regularly! It is that good! But for everyone else there is much much more.I love the layout with the wood and exposed kitchen and bar.The staff is very friendly and knowledgable about the fabulous food.I would highly recommend Carrabba's to anyone who wants a authentic,comfortable dining experience...

Food was okay. I had the Chicken Parm w/ garlic mashed potatoes. Food was pricey for what you got, but the service was really good and the people were friendly.

This is the second time in a few months that I went to a Carrabba's for lunch. This one was a siamese twin to the Outback next door. When you enter through the common doors, your choice is to turn right for Outback or left for Carrabba's. From what I could tell, the menu at all Carrabba's are the same... More

Food was good. Staff needs improvement. I ate in front of the cooks, and no one spoke to each other or cracked a smile. I found that compare to Johnson city Tn the work area was a mess.

Remodeled since we were there last. We forgot to call ahead for seating for 8, but we were seated quickly on a Saturday evening around 5:30 pm. We all enjoyed the food and service. No complaints at all. Grandchild was given coloring book and crayons and all went well.

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.
