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.

Maitre d deftly handled the growing crowd awaiting tables. Our four top was seated within fifteen minutes of arrival around six thirty p.m. on a Thursday. Austin, our server, had a calm no stress manner. His knowledge of the menu was helpful in making selections. Each person at our table reported satisfaction with the food. Nobody had strong feelings either... More

Always enjoy eating out at Carrabba's Hickory. In my opinion the wood grilled menu items are the best. The bread is complimentary, hot and fresh. The sautéed garlic and olive oil mixture is a nice dressing for the bread while you are waiting on your appetizer and main course. The servers are quick and keep your drinks topped off. Dustin...

Close to Interstate 40 and near convention center and several large hotels. Large parking lot. We were greeted immediately by a friendly host and seated immediately. Our drinks order was taken and quickly arrived at the table. There is a great selection of pasta with chicken and seafood. My pasta dish had the option of chicken or shrimp but they... More

We have not been to this place since they have opened up...but our friend says she loves it that we decided to give it a try...well thank God we did. My husband had the pork medallions and I had chicken Marsala...both were perfectly tender and great flavor. The dessert was also good..except for the cannolis, very disappointed in them
