My husband and I had a late lunch on 12/15/2016, after a long day of shopping and were definitely ready for a drink! The pomegranate martini is to die for (I had 2) and I would go back just for that. As for the appetizer meatballs, they were just fair and unfortunately for us, we had a bad server who... More

This place is so fanfreakingtastic it's ridiculous. A lot of people down chain restaurants, but truth be told, sometimes, a chain restaurant can be like going to Grandma's for Sunday dinner or like your favorite pair of jeans. You know it will be good and consistent and you get what you want. Unlike some fancy dancy little place where the... More

I had such high hopes considering I have heard so much about this place. The server was great. I got lasagna and its sauce was as if it was pureed. Serving size wasn't bad, but not large either. For the price I was not thrilled.

We live in a part of Virginia where the closest Carrabba's is over an hour away, so whenever we are close to one, we like to go! Food is very good and the staff are always great...

Stopped in at Carrabbas before going to the airport. What a perfect way to end a stellar vacation. I got there early right at 11 on a Monday and I went directly for the bar. Tim greeted me warmly and kept the drinks fresh. He even made a personal favorite, Liquid Marijuana and it was chronic. They have new chicken... More

Good food at a reasonable price, but not outstanding. Dined during happy hour and enjoyed the half priced draft beers, although they are rather small. Had the Cioppino, a new menu item that I imagine will not be continued. Although it had plenty of seafood, it was overcooked and the shellfish was rubbery as a result. The side salad was... More

Carrabba's is my number 1 choice. Many different dishes and they are all good. Always receive a lot of food and the prices are very reasonable. The owner, Scott is out and about visiting and talking with the customers and checks on everyone. Great food, great drinks, great service and great prices.

By joining their e-mail club (Amici club), you get periodic e-mails with specials. We got one today for prosciutto wrapped pork tenderloin with choice of soup/salad and mashed potatoes, veg of the day or pasta for $10.50. Great deal! They were very busy, but we were promptly seated. Service was fast paced, but good. No issues. Food was well prepared... More

My wife and I have enjoyed each time that we have gone to Carrabba's, but when the service is great it makes much more enjoyable. Our server was witty and did a great job taking care of us.
