We enjoyed hooking up with friends on our way through Columbus. I highly recommend the calamari and the tomatoes caprese. I order a pizza as my main course and found it way too spicy. The others in our group enjoyed their meals. My husband was put off by the staff cleaning the floor around us while we were still dining.... More

This is a favorite. It's by no means a suit and tie kinda place but it is a step above Olive Garden. A big step. The house salad with the house dressing is pretty fantastic. The bread is always warm and abundant. Very good deals/ specials especially on Mondays. Their desserts are not for me but I've heard good things... More

The second impression is the efficient Staff, Jackie was our server and did great job. i had a side salad nothing special ( bagged lettuce) although the 2 small olives I had were very good as well as the dressing, I ordered the Shrimp and Scallop...

While on a business trip, I checked with the hotel staff for restaurants nearby, and this was my first choice. The service was excellent, the food was tasty, and the coffee hot and fresh. There was no long wait between the salad and main course, and I enjoyed it so much, I ate there the next night also, and was... More

We always look forward to going to Carrabba's whenever we can. The salad with the house dressing is the best part of the meal. The food and desserts were delicious. Our server though was less attentive and not as good as we've had in the past.

We wanted to try something different this Easter with the family for dinner. Some of the restaurants were charging $35.00 per person with reservations made far in advance. We had 3 grandchildren in our party and I love the with all my heart, but they can't eat $35.00 per person. We called the Carrabba's Italian Grill and they were very... More

I brought my lady companion here for a bite, we were quickly ushered in, met with an efficient and quite skilled waitress, who readily made some fine suggestions. We were readily served our drinks and salads, with meals readily in tow, the efficiency of the well orchestrated efforts of all parties was well noticed by my companion. The food was... More

We had not been to Carrabba's in a long time and went to celebrate a birthday. First, the really tasty things: the peach Sangria was refreshing and yummy. The goat cheese broschetta was creamy with a big taste of red (sweet) peppers. Our entrees: the lobster mac and cheese, although with just tiny bits of lobster, was still really good.... More
