Solid chain restaurant, great meal.

This is the second time I've eaten at this particular location, was in the area last year and did not review. There are Carrabba's everywhere, and I've always had a good meal. The service at this location was great, our server was very attentive and friendly. I would recommend this location... read more

After a long day of training and a not so good dinner the night before, I wanted a good martini with a good meal. I didn't get that here. I got a GREAT martini with a DELICIOUS meal. I sat at the bar and met Eric, the bartender. I placed my order and watched as he performed his job like... More

Carrabba's is a sister restaurant of The Outback and follows a similar business model: average to slightly above average underflavored food at above average prices. Among the big Italian chains, I would rank it below Maggiano's and Brio and slightly above Macaroni Grill and Olive Garden.

On Saturday July 12th I took my family to Carrabbas Restaurant to celebrate my Mother's 92nd birthday. It was the third time we had dined at this restaurant because the previous two occassions the meal was superb and though the price was a but high the value was well worth the price. As I had done the previous two visits,... More

Their wine is way too pricey ($10.50 per glass for a modest-sized glass of an average-tasting Pinot Noir). But their food was excellent, and our waiter - Ralph - was a gem: relaxed yet attentive, and very personable. I had the Spiedino de Mare - shrimp and scallops baked in a lemon butter sauce with Italian breadcrumbs - with fresh... More

Our server really wasn't sure about the menu. Unfamilar is a better word. My mom and grandfather ordered the Rigatoni Al Frorno and those portions were very good. I ordered the small Pollo Rosa Maria and yes it is very small i think 6 carrots and a small piece of meat for $15.00. My husbands Sirloin Marsala was just slightly... More

Their chicken soup and lasagna are incredibly good! The best I’ve ever tried. Very nice atmosphere with polite and friendly staff. Please try garlic bread with olive oil! The best!

My wife and I love to eat at Carrabba's, but lately we have had to play Russian Roulette with which one to eat at. Either the Regency location or the Baymeadows location. The food is good at both, but the service is very spotty. They've also changed their bread or something, but I guess everyone is cutting back.

My wife and I have visited this location four times and we have yet to be dissappointed. From the warm and cheerful greeting, to the prompt an friendly service at the bar or at a table, one will be satisfied. The managment and staff are well trained and look forward to pleasing thier guests.

Anyone looking for a sodium overdose, I recommend Carrabba's. Doesn't matter where, they all cook the same menu and recipes. Especially salty, their signature dish, Lentils & Italian sausage soup. Also recommend skipping the lasagna for the same reasons, SALT.
