Great for last minute Take-Out

The Portage Carrabbas is perfectly located alongside I-94 at S. Westnedge, and eager to provide short notice take-out dinners that will make your evening! Friendly staff, efficient ordering and consistently on-time pick up. They have it all!

The interior looks like a mix between an Olive Garden and an Applebees. I gauge most Italian restaurants by their Chicken Parm and theirs was lacking. No noodles, chicken wasn't flattened, ends slightly burnt. The taste was not terrible, but for the price it was missing the authenticity. You definitely don't get what you pay for here.

We are very limited by the amount of italian eateries we have here in town. This is one of the better options outside of Olive Garden. The food is always good as is the service.

Husband took us here for dinner. I got the Chicken Parmesan Flatbread, husband got the Grilled Tuscan Skewers, daughter got the Margherita Pizza. We each tried some of each others dishes. They were all awesome! The steak was super soft to chew. The flatbread was crispy and the pizza was done just right. We also got dessert. Husband got the... More

I love pan fried fish and their Mahi mahi is fantastic. It is not always on the menu but, they will make it for you. This is also a great place to get gift cards because everyone around Portage loves the place!
