Monday night is bargain night ....

Monday night is a special menu, $13, $18 for 3 courses ... and all is based on the existing menu. I have to say I was impressed by the set menu selection, and if your there on a Monday, there is no real point going off-piste from the set menu offer. They've just introduced a new menu too, and... read more

Had dinner last night at Carrabba's. Promptly seated in a nice booth (though later in our experience it got really loud as we were surrounded by families with small children-beating on the back of the booth and screeching). By the end of our meal, the restaurant was a dull roar at all tables surrounding us. Server came over and got... More

I had a family member in town for a few days. On his last day here we decided to go to Carrabba's for dinner. We ordered lasagna which normally you cannot go wrong with this dish. It was absolutely horrible, we should have just ordered a bowl of garlic!!! The waiter didn't seem to care at all when we told... More

I eat at Carrabba's with family. Good menu selection. Good portions, to include a smaller portion for those who don't want to eat as much. Cost is reasonable, service is always excellent. One of the best chain restaurants around.

Very happy with our dinner. Had prosciutto wrapped pork tenderloins with penne in fig port wine -- well prepared and very tasty; wife had Chicken Bryan, also nicely prepared and very good. Based on the cuisine, it is hard to believe that this restaurant is a chain! Wait staff was very courteous and attentive. Recommend you give it a try!

I have only been once and was surprised that it was as good as it was. I had veal Marsala and it was definitely above average. I will go back, the service was good as well.

Our entire family loves going to Carrabba's. The food and service never fail. When we go, we always see the owner. He takes great pride in the work of his staff. He personally ensures that each of his guests has a wonderful experience.

They have this simple pasta dish. Pic pac. Excellent . Simple ingredients. Inexpensive. And I can make a dinner serving last for three servings. I love it with the bread they serve. Highly recommend. This carrabas has always had quick friendly service every time I go there.
