Carrabba's Garlic

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... read 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.

I have been to Carrabba's in the past, but my husband ans best friend had never been so I thought this was a great opportunity while on vacation to go and enjoy their wonderful food as well as surroundings. The minute we walked in we were greeted happily and surprised that we were able to be seated immediately, when that's... More

The food was wonderful, the ambience was warm and inviting, but the one thing that stood out for us was our waitress! When we asked to speak to the Manager at the end of a terrific meal to tell him just how much we enjoyed ourselves, especially the waitress, he said that she had been with them for over eight...
