Wife and I always enjoy Carrabba's. While here on business we stopped at this one in Matthews. The service was great. They have the best marsala sauce. The manager stopped by a couple of times to check on how things were going. I will come back.

In the past, we've had a good experience, but not this last time. We went to Carrabba's on Mother's Day. We beat the after church rush so being busy was not an excuse. My fiancé, daughter, and I ordered our lunch. First, they brought my daughter a child's spaghetti when we ordered chicken tenders. The server was apologetic and told... More

Haven't eaten at a Carrabba's in over 15 years. Food and service were great. Can't wait to go back for another visit.

My husband and I had dinner tonight and our meal was just right! I had the small Chicken Marsala (one piece of chicken) with fettuccine; my husband had the Filet Spiedino and we shared a side of scallops Spiedino. While the portions of my entree were smaller than I remember, it was plenty of food! My salad with creamy Parmesan... More

We visited the restaurant early Sunday evening. The place was pretty crowded, but we didn't have to wait for a booth. The server, Hannah, served us well, always making certain that we had beverages. My wife chose the soup option with her dinner. Upon tasting it, she said that it was like room-temperature. We sent it back and they made... More

Stopped in here last night, around 9:15pm. We had just arrived in town after driving for 9 hours, so we were beyond exhausted as well as hungry. Our server was SO NICE and quickly brought us our drinks. Our salads and then entrees followed shortly after. Everything was delicious! I don't typically eat at chain restaurants, but the food was...

We used to enjoy going to Carrabba's but the past few times we have noticed the portions have gotten a lot smaller and we were disappointed with the manager who tried to please us by offering dessert. We don't eat dessert but would have liked at have a reasonable size serving.

This is our favorite Carrabbas because the food is always consistently great, the service is excellent, and the restaurant staff is very accommodating. The proprietor always comes around to the table to make sure that our dining experience was pleasing. My husband loves the pork chops Marsala and I love the Spiedino with shrimp and scallops. The grill chefs here... More
