Diners be ware,, this location has changed Franchise owners... Service isn't what it used to be. After being seated it was to the point I was going to get up and ask if someone was going to wait on us. Waiter finally came,... Took order, we ordered Pizza for an appetizer, and she specifically asked if we wanted it before... More

I know what we are going to get and we have never been disappointed. Food is good and consistent, ambiance is always nice and for the money, it is a very good place to eat.

I used to be a Carrabba's fan before this visit. The service was good, but the food was pre made and thawed. The lasagna was near inedible and most of my party's food was tasteless. This will be my last visit to any Carrabba's.

I recently had a quick pre-business meeting at Carrabba's and while the wait staff did their job efficiently, I just wasn't able to find something in my meal that reminded me much of great Italian food. Average food, more starchy than anything else, with middle of the road flavoring.

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

This is our visit here, my first impression is the relaxing atmosphere and Music. 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...
