Located on Richmond Road, one of the main streets in Williamsburg, you can find Carrabbas next to the Yankee Candle store. Peter, our waiter, was very attentive and made sure that our experience was exceptional. We had the lightly breaded shrimp and scallops which were absolutely excellent. The Fettucini Alfredo had a good flavor but was a little dry. Portions... More

Sophie was our server and she was fantastic. She answered every question we had and provided helpful suggestions. The food was great and Sophie and the manager were very attentive to our group of 5. They didn't chace us out and we were there 30 minutes past closing. All of us will be back when we return to Williamsburg in... More

We had a gift card and decided to use it. Had never eaten at Carrabbas but heard good things. It was the Sunday after Christmas about 8pm. The place was empty so we figured service would be quick but we were wrong. Despite the barren tables everything was slow to our table. I knew I wanted seafood and chose the... More

The kids always want to eat at a hamburger joint. I always want to eat at Carrabba's when we travel to Roanoke VA. I won this time. Well, sort of. The food was good. But for the half portion I received, I would expect to pay half the price. No luck there. Perhaps lunch was the mistake. The price was... More

This may well have been the most interesting waiter I have ever encountered. Food was good and service was good, not great but was good. The waiter seemed to be intoxicated or way too friendly- shared stories with us that were off the wall and a little to personal to share with complete strangers, although he did seem to know...

We've been to this Carrabba's several times in recent years. The food is always great and the staff usually gets it right, they are usually attentive to our needs and wants. On the rare occasions there is an issue with the food they always make it right.

We have dined at this place before and we have had some good experiences. The last visit was not one that would make us return. The server made so many errors that it caused my guest to question my choice in picking this place. He seemed to be new at the job or was just overwhelmed by the full house... More

We have devoted Carrabba's followers and have always counted on a great meal and service. BUT, this time was a nightmare!!! They had no more children's menus, but were more than happy to provide crayons for our son and no paper. How nice to leave us with looking for something for him to color on and to occupy him during... More

We came in around 1020 and they close at 11 and nobody seemed to be annoyed, which was really nice! Everyone we had an encounter with was very friendly and our server was the sweetest girl and was very knowledgeable! My fiancé and I spilt a Chicken Marsala and it was AHHHHHH MAZZZZIN!!! So was the Fried Calamari!
