Carrabba's Review

Enjoyed the visit, you most likely will be visited by the Manager/Owner "Scott" to check on your experience. Food is very tastey and service is great. From Veal to Fish they serve a delicious dish. Did not mean to make the rhyme but it is the truth. My husband ordered Veal Marsala and I had... read more

We had not been to this restaurant in some time due to a previous poor experience. This time it was completely different, service was exceptional; the waitress was always nearby to offer food and drink suggestions and to ask us how our meal was. Everything from our appetizers, to the entrees, to the desserts were good. We are planning to... More

I have eaten here and utilized their catering services. Very high-quality food and the service is consistently impressive. I look for low-cal, healthy choices when dining out and I'm pleased to say Carrabba's provides several tasty options to choose from.

We were a party of 7, eating early on a week night. The restaurant was not busy, when we arrived, but was by the time we left. Everyone enjoyed their food and ordered different dishes, except two ordered the same thing. The fantastic thing about the meal was the service. We received some of the best service that we have...

The waitress was awesome and reminded me that happy hour was ending and if I needed another beer, to order it now, while prices were cheap - THAT is service. The place also smelled awesome, if I hadn't already eaten I would've ordered some lasagne or something. The beer on tap is limited but they had what I like. The... More

Hubby and I went on a Wednesday evening. Turns out it is wine bottle discount night. I love wine! So we ordered a bottle of chardonnay that included a beautiful small platter of a Varity of cheese and fruit. Beautiful touch. Next came a complimentary serving of fresh hot bread with a vinaigrette dip. We then order a shrimp appy... More

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 again... 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
