One of our go to restaurants when nothing else sounds good. At first we started off on the wrong foot, we waited and waited and other tables that came in after us were getting served first. Then waiter Ivan showed up and explained that it was his first day serving, from that point forward everything was outstanding. Manager Helen came... More

We called ahead to be put on the list (because we had 4 adults and 3 kids) and it wasn't much of a wait considering we showed up around 6pm. The service was very good and everything was tasty. We basically all got the filet and everyone loved it. The only strange thing about my meal was that my cut... More

Carrabba's has some very good and unique menu items, especially for a large chain restaurant. Their pasta is some of the best around and their homemade salad dressings are very good. It is definitely worth dining here.

The minestrone soup is made Vegan at this location and it is AMAZING! So hearty and filling. The kids pizza was delicious and my son really enjoyed the activity book they provide with the kids menu. The environment is clam and warm but the air conditioning was on too low, it was FREEZING in there. Our waiter (Kalvin) was incredibly... More

I recently dined here with 5 friends. It was a weekday so we were seated right away. My salad was good, and the sliced fresh bread was also good with the olive oil. My main entrée of chicken marsala was nothing special, and the alfredo noodles were dry and needed more sauce. The person that I was with ordered baked... More

The service was outstanding and the food was excellent. The only issue we had is that they have an automatic system for air conditioning and it was "cold" we had to get our jackets - the waitress apologized but there was nothing she could do. Other than that the restaurant was excellent.

When we arrived we asked to be seated on the patio. Unfortunately there was a lack of communication between the hostess and our waitress. A gentleman came around and asked how we were doing and we explained. It happened to be the owner, from that moment everything was perfect. He more than made up for the error( and it is... More

The restaurant I visited is located in Merritt Island, Florida. Only one that I know of serving lunch. Food was outstanding, always. We had a great server. This Carrabba's never fails.
