Terrible service. Rude server had to nerve to ask if I were expecting bc I ordered a small glass of wine with dinner than had to check w her manager. After she said she could I felt like she spend forever looking at my ID card. She said "I can't tell if it says 85 or 86." I'm over 21... More

Originally we wanted to go to the Cheeseburger in Paradise, but when we arrived we found it closed. Being pretty hungry, we decided to look no further and walked right next door to Carrabba's. We've dined at Carrabba's before and were never disappointed, and this location continued the trend. The food was very good, the portions were large, the drinks... More

Ate dinner there for 2d time and continue to be most pleasantly surprised with cuisine, menu choices, and wines. While not exactly traditional Italian, food was excellent. Pasta e fagioli and Sirloin & lobster ravioli with julienned zucchini was well prepared and quite tasty. Definitely will return again!

We ate here with a group of twenty after our basketball game and had a great experience. The service was excellent and very fast. We had a variety of pasta, pizza and fish dinners and everyone was pleased.

We are not into chain restaurants, but Carrabba's is the exception. We visit this restaurant every couple months and are never disappointed. I like the fact that you can see the kitchen. Also, the pizza oven is great...about as close to Italy as you can get. For travelers -- This location is just off I64. If it looks like the... More

We visit this Carrabbas frequently and the food is always great but the service can be a little slow so don't go if you're in a rush!

As a frequent traveler, I know what a gamble getting take out at the end of the night can be. This carrabbas got all the little things right...bread in top of entrees to keep it warm, oil and spices, utensils, all done without asking.....good job... and oh yeah food was excellent

We have been patronizing this restaurant for years, since it first opened. It used to be always excellent, but the quality of the food has gone down over the years. It reached an all-time low with the last meal we had there, as a take-out order. We tried the new shrimp diavolo appetizer (their version of bang-bang shrimp), which was... More

This is one of our regular weekend meals! The food is always great, they always find a way to introduce new menu items and service is always superb. This is simply a great run restaurant and always worth the spend. I do miss the espresso rubbed ribeye, but still enjoy the other menu options. Please put this one in your... More
