Kitchen did well this evening. The chicken was very moist and seasoned well. Service lacked this evening. My pet peeve is keeping my glass filled. I had to ask for water.

You can always count on Carrabba's to give you a consistently good meal. The food tastes the same in each of their restaurants and I like that. I know what to expect. Unfortunately, what is not consistent is the service. Our waiter was trying, but had too many tables and therefore we had to wait...and wait...and wait.

We always have great service from the staff. Food is freshly prepared and seasoned wonderfully. Beer is always cold too.

We stopped to eat at this location as it was next to the mall, and not very busy. We sat on the patio and had very good service, and the meal was quick and better than expected.

Given a choice on the road, I would choose a Carrabba's 9 out of 10 times in the past. I've eaten at this particular location literally dozens of times over the years, however I've noticed a decline in quality and portion sizes at most locations including this one. I ordered The Damian, a Salmon and Spedino De Mare combination and... More

Very dark inside, felt rushed throughout. Food was only average. On closer look during our stay - not very clean! It needs a steam clean throughout, thats why so dark!!!!!

Love this place! My husband and I always pick this place for our date night. The food is awesome and the staff is always nice. It can be busy on the weekends and sometimes a long wait but it is always worth it.

Carrabba's is our favorite Italian restaurant. We eat there about 90% of the times we do go out to eat. The food is fantastic, the atmosphere is great, and the service outstanding.

Five people for dinner on a Sun. night. Last visit was 2 years ago, and enjoyed it a lot. But tonight, very slow, inattentive, sporadic service. Good bread, as always, but the appetizer, bacon-onion flatbread was so tough we couldn't cut it. The salads were mediocre and bland. The beer was overpriced. Some of the main dishes were ok, fettucine... More
