Never Disappointed

Carrabba's is my favorite restaurant in the Hickory area. Hubby and I eat there for every special event. The food is consistently good, and the menu offers variety. The wait staff are on their toes, and give enough service without too much service. I think I will check my calendar for another... read more

Carrabba's is my favorite restaurant in the Hickory area. Hubby and I eat there for every special event. The food is consistently good, and the menu offers variety. The wait staff are on their toes, and give enough service without too much service. I think I will check my calendar for another "special event' just to go Carrabba's again soon.

This is the best Carrabbas I've been too. I never forget it and it's always great. Very romantic and very good.

Good, stick-to-the-ribs Sicilian fare; pleasant atmosphere, attentive (but not TOO attentive) service. Wide variety of choices; something for everyone!

I jogged by this place everyday for the past two weeks and decided to visit on my last dinner in town (I prefer non-chain places). The food portion is smaller than I remembered but fresh and tasty. They also don't have happy hour two for one wine anymore, but then again I have not been to this chain for at... More

We came to celebrate our daughters birthday with her grandparents on a Saturday afternoon. We were seated immediately and our server came right over to take our drink order. The salads came out very quickly and our food soon followed. Everything was prepared as ordered and was great.

I have always like Carrabbas but times, they are a 'changing. We dined at the Hickory location recently and it just wasn't that great. The mussels we ordered as an appetizer seemed beyond their prime, the Caesar salad had a strange herb I had never tasted before in it (and hope never to again), and the lobster ravioli, if it...

By taking advantage of online reservations, we only had to wait about 5 minutes, to be seated, which was great, for a Friday night, at 7:30. Our server was friendly, efficient, attentive and knowledgeable and the food was awesome. I highly recommend the menu items grilled on a wood fire. I liked the fact that there was an open kitchen,...

Food and service was good but a little pricey. Would love to eat there more often however I have to make it a special occasion.

I like that salad or soup are included. The house wine is very decent and service very efficient and friendly.
