Once or twice a year we get in to Carrabba's and it's always the same--everything is great. I cannot, unfortunately, say this about the majority of restaurants. The place is amazingly consistent! Whether we have children with us, or just my husband and I, or lunch with the girls. This time with my mother and I for dinner, the food... More

If someone were to ask me what the best Italian place around here was five years ago, it would have been Carrabbas hands down. However, they went a bit cheap on the patron a few year ago during the recession and just haven't gotten back to that great Carrabbas I once loved. I commend them for not raising prices during...

They were pretty busy but we had great service. The bread is seriously amazing. Most meals start off around $14-$15 and go up from there. Not sure about children's menu. We didn't have dessert but many people near us did and it looked so good.

Being Italian, am critical about Italian food in restaurants. However, food here is very good for a chain - pricier than your typical "Olive Garden", but quality is much better. Pasta sauces were rich, salmon was juicy and seared to perfection, salads were excellent and fresh, meats were cooked perfectly. Service was great. Would go back for your "Italian food... More

I know this is a "chain restaurant, but the food is unbelievable. You must try the calimari.....WOW!! I have had pasta and steaks and everything is delicious. Please don't let the fact that it is a chain restaurant keep you from stopping in.

We took a party of nine here for dinner and they did an OK job of keeping up withour groups needs. The food is what you would expect from a franchise/multiple location national chain. Good food but nothing which was amazing. It you want consistant quality, good Italian food give them a try.

We have visited Carrabba's many times and have never been disappointed with the service and food. I love the minestrone soup. Nothing like I have ever tasted before. I could eat it every day. The service is prompt and the food is very tasty. Will visit often.

Just went there again last night to celebrate a birthday and food was tremendous as usual. Server accommodated every request including making a fettuccine kids meal instead of the regular marinara sauce and when we ordered the calamari they let us order without the legs and with extra marinara sauce..Yum! We always find great staff,restaurant was clean, food and service... More
