Really good for a chain

Of all the chain Italian restaurants, Carrabba's is definitely my favorite. We love the blackberry Sangria, almost all of the appetizers and desserts. As far as an entrée, I usually get one of the specials.

The calamari was very bland. My wife ordered ravioli which came out very watered down. My salad was not fresh all all and appeared as if it was soaked in a large bowl of vinegar. No crispness to the salad whatsoever. The waitress was nice however the quality of food is poor.

On 12 August, we ate an early dinner at Carrabbas. We ordered the Shrimp Diavolo appetizer, which was excellent. Our Waiter David was exemplary in his customer service and attentiveness. However, my wife ordered the Oven Baked Ravioli Parmesan and I ordered the Lobster Mac and Cheese. I noticed that my wife's ravioli was burnt on the ravioli edges and... More

This was the location that I first ate at a Carrabba's. I was surprised at the food and thought it was actually very good. I have since eaten at this location several times and I have never been disappointed. The staff is friendly and the food is great.

Both my husband and I had rib eye steak, cooked to perfection. Our wait person has been at his job with Carrabba's for 11 years, that says a lot for a restaurant!

Carrabba's is a good place for Italian food. My only complaint is that it was difficult to find a parking place. I came around 7pm and the parking lot was almost full, although once I got inside I noticed there were several empty tables, so I didn't have to wait to be seated. The place could use a larger parking... More

The food was the usual good food, well-prepared and served hot. The special part of the evening out with the family was interacting with Amanda. What a superb waitress. She was pleasant, encouraging, helpful and interacted playfully with our 4 year old grandson. He was entertained/amused appropriately. All-in-all, she related well to the entire table and provided outstanding service. She... More

We were able to make reservations via the internet on their website so barely no wait at all. That was pretty impressive but did explain to the 8 people waiting in line as they questioned us as to how we got in so quickly! I had the mussels with lemon flavored broth. They were good but have had much better... More

Never been here before and plan to go back. It was very delirious and the server was pleasant. Everything was clean. The portion was small to me but where it lacked size the flavor was awesome. I was there for lunch and they had several options on the gluten free menu for me to choose from.

Another last minute reservation for 20 people, and no problem for Carrabba's! This is a nice, cozy restaurant and serves food sure to please any palate, and not just Italian. Hubby had the mussels in lemon wine sauce, loved them, while I opted for the Chicken Bryan, one of my favorites from this chain, chicken topped with goat cheese and... More
