Family dinner

The service and the food were good. We were all very happy with our waitress and the food was saved promptly. I would recommend this restaurant.

We have always loved Carrabbas! But today was different. New menu with one of our favorite appetizers removed. Portions smaller and just not as good! Not in any hurry to return.

This restaurant is easily in my top 3 worst I've ever been to. My family and I go in and get seated right away. 30 minutes later we get asked what we would like to drink with no apology of the wait and no one even coming to check on us. We told the waitress we would like to order... More

Carrabba's is always a welcome sight for travellers and the Polaris location is no exception. Friendly staff, consistently good food and good value for money make Carrabba's a place where we regularly dine.

Outstanding pasta. A variety of types and sauces. Hardest part was deciding what to try. The marinara sauce was very tasty.

Just visited this location as we have been traveling. They close on Sundays at 9:00pm. We arrived before 8:30pm and were seated but had to walk by chairs in the aisle as they were vacuuming the rugs. I understand they were getting ready for the next day but PLEASE would you vacuum your dining room while your guests are eating?????... More

The waiter was training a new member of staff and rushed us quite a bit, he even leaned across myself to take away finished plates, even though I was still eating.

Our server went above and beyond. He made sure that our special requests were made and even though we have eaten at Carrabba's many times before, he was the first person to tell us what was in the oil based dip for the bread. The food was excellent as well.

Service was nice, friendly and quick. Food was ok (pasta.) Prices a little higher than I expected for dinner.
