We hadn't been to Carrabba's in years. The service was outstanding! The food was delish! The picky kid loved the chicken Parmesan. Excellent everything!

Although it was a rainy Monday afternoon, this turned out to be a great choice for the evening. Our server was prompt to serve our table and was super friendly. The remodel of this restaurant enhanced its appeal and warm inviting atmosphere. The happy hour was great and the beer was cold! Kudos to our waitress for never saying no... More

This isn't a knock on the Carrabba's Grill in Columbia. The service there was very good and if the food selections were "healthier" this could have been a 4-star review. I am not a health food nut but when 90% of the menu mentions butter or cream sauce I think twice before I order a high calorie, artery-clogging meal. Your... More

I normally like this restaurant, but tonight was not good. I ordered their Margherita pizza, and it was not good. The traditional Margherita is made with tomato sauce, mozzarella, and basil. This one had slices of Roma tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil, I know it seems insignificant, but the pizza was flavorless except for the slight bitter taste it had.

Had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant. Nice facility, good service, and good food. I had a grilled mahi dinner with artichoke and sundries tomatoes that was very tasty. They have very good hot crispy bread and Avery good salad. I'm looking forward to going again.

Have been to many Carrabba's and this location was not a good experience. Ordered Mussels and Calamari. Calamari was way too salty, overdone, flavorless. The mussels were lukewarm, several were not opened which usually means they were dead before cooking. Server's response to cold mussels: I'll let the Manager know. Big deal! Will not patronize Carrabba's again.

I actually walked to this restaurant from Home-Towne Suites! The food was fantastic, as usual, and my server Bryan was phenomenal!

Good atmosphere, great staff. Wide menu. Wine list is fair. Prices good. Food arrived quickly and everyone loved their meal. This chain seems to have covered all corners to deliver a solid dining experience.

My husband and I both received our meals and his portion size looked like a kids meal. We've gone here numerous times and he usually orders this same dish. When we mentioned it to the manager he basically said "well it is what it is...take it or leave it.". Very POOR customer service skills for a manger. For the price... More

We have found you can never have to much Italian food. We often eat at Carrabba's when out of town plus we have one close at home. This Carrabba's did not let us down, the service was excellent, the food was excellent and the atmosphere was as usual great.
