One of the great things about Carrabba's was that even though it was a chain, the food was always better quality and worth spending the extra money. Now, it seems, that is not the case any more. The nice wine selection is always appreciated and we had the calamari which is an old favorite. Gone are the large pieces with... More

We love Carrabba's! They always have fresh food that is delicious! The only down side is that they get very busy and if you are going during peak times you may have to wait a while before you get a seat. The food and service has always been wonderful, and I definitely recommend this restaurant!

I travel often and am a big fan of shrimp and scallop dishes, however most of the time they are cooked poorly (overcooked). Tonight on a whim the wife, kids and I stopped here since we are staying next door. The meal was outstanding, everything was plated at the right time and cooked to perfection, the lemon on the Spiedino... More

My husband is a fan of Carrabba's, so when we stay next door at The Hampton, we usually eat there or get carry out at least once or twice during our visit to Hickory (business trips). This past Sunday (my birthday, actually), we were tired after a long day of travel so chose the carry out route. My husband walked... More

I've eaten here four or five times and had very good food and service. The management team is also very efficient and appreciative to their customers. I would come back.

Ate here with a large group (11 total) and had a great time. We were seated promptly (called in a reservation earlier), service was great, and food was perfect. Really enjoyed our time and will definitely return!
