Usually Pretty Good

Usually I have a consistently great meal. I get shrimp & Scallop Spiedino every time because it is so excellent. This was an off day. The scallops were like bubble gum- hard and chewy. We sat outside because it was a beautiful day, the service was excellent. Jason was our server and he was... read more

We ate at Carrabba's on Monday when they feature their Amore Monday where I got an entree, appetizer and dessert for $12.99! I chose a Caesar salad, Lasagne and three flavor gelato and it was delicious! Everything was great and our waiter was outstanding attending to our every need. I could not have been happier with the food, service and... More

We stopped by after church - hardly any cars- should have been first clue - we do like Italian food, but we will not go back - the salad dressings were very bad- all smelled like fish. The portions of lasagna were small with lots of sauce for price $14.99 Very disappointed for the price vs portions. Will not return✔️

Just one word can explain my experience HORRIBLE ! I have been going to this location at least two times a month for the last 5 years but recently it has gone downhill... Starting with the food being bland and over cooked to the staff being very inattentive. I'm not sure what has changed but I wont being going back... More

At Carrabba's, there is a lot of very good food, but what is awesome is that the staff is always so outgoing and very accommodating.

Best option for business travelers with an excellent "happy hour" menu including several delicious appetizer options (like chicken wings) for under $7 and great drink specials. Sitting at the bar is a great option and the wait staff is friendly and the atmosphere is more relaxing compared to other chain restaurants

Stopped here with a colleague on a Monday night. Seated promptly. Service was top notch. My food was great as was his. This chain does a great job and this location did a great job of providing a delicious meal. My Chicken Marsala was top-notch. Big thumbs up for this dining experience.

This location knows how to do it right! They never miss a beat. We often take anywhere from 4 to 10 people, and have had in the mid 20's, as well. They always do an outstanding job! I had been in food service for 30 years, and these guys deserve kudos for an outstanding job, every time. Never a bad... More

Carrabba's is always a welcome sight. I don't know how the rest of their day had gone, but on the evening of Columbia SC's worst night of existence with record rainfall & flooding, we had a terrific & peaceful meal.

Haven't been to carrabba's in years. New menu change. Honestly not that much that appealed to me but what I chose was really good. Don't remember the name but was pasta with tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, and basil. Good bread as appetizer. Moderate pricing for type of restaurant. Nice outdoor seating. Was a little smelly inside.
