Nice Remodel!

Arrived at the restaurant on a Saturday evening about 7:45 with no reservations and was seated in 10 minutes. The remodel is very nice and I think it increased seating capacity. Orders were taken and we had food and were out of there in 45 minutes. Got to love that.

We always try to eat at this place when we travel as there is none where we live. We have learned to get the same quality and taste when we go. This was no exception. Excellent service by Derrick, delicious meal and location.

Very enjoyable birthday dinner for my husband. We arrived for an early dinner, we did not have to wait. Our server was excellent. I ordered the PROSCIUTTO-WRAPPED PORK TENDERLOIN (Medallions wrapped in prosciutto, wood-grilled and topped with port wine fig sauce) on the 600 calorie menu & my husband ordered the POLLO ROSA MARIA (Wood-grilled chicken topped with fontina cheese,...

Carrabba's is our special place. We go for birthdays, anniversaries, or date night. They have a lovely atmosphere and the BEST food you will find anywhere. They start with fresh delicious bread and olive oil. Everything on the menu is delicious. Make sure to try the spinach as a side! There is something everyone in my family loves. Their fish... More

My meal was okay, however a person who I was with absolutely loved her meal! I got a chicken parm salad and there was no cheese on it, haha I was looking forward to that but oh well! Still great place to be. Nice atmosphere! Bread is great!!

We used them for a carry out catering order and were very pleased!! They provided a delicious meal, all the paper products, serving pieces, sterno and chafing dishes. Bill, the manager, personally helped with the order. Dinner made easy for a large high school cross country team at an away meet!! Thank you Carrabbas!

This place stumps me. It isn't Olive Garden or Buca and it actually looks Mexican. It's in an ugly location. The part I actually dislike is how little there is for me to eat for lunch. I can't eat seafood and it seems like everything else comes spicy. The menu is very limited for a place that serves tomato sauce,... More

Bread is very good. Food is typically chain italian with little variation between locations. Decent portions. Staff: attentive. Prices: kind of high for what you get served. Definitely not Gourmet Italian.

My family and I love Carrabbas and often choose to eat there any time there is one nearby. I almost always order the Rosa Maria so I know the proper way that it should be prepared. At this location, the sauce was totally tasteless and the cheese was melted on top (in a crispy layer) instead of stuffed inside. No... More
