This has been my favorite restaurant for years. Try the Chicken O'brien, Chicken Marsala, or Pork Tenderloin. Yum yum This restaurant is well run and the employees know what they are doing. I have never had a bad experience there.

We went here to celebrate our teenage grandsons birthday because this is where he wanted to go. The service was horrible and we got there at 5:00 pm. There wasn't many people there at that time last Sunday. The food ,( when we finally got it), was pretty good for the price. The waiter had to be new because he... More

We have eaten at this location for many years and have always "loved" the food and service. Today we went in and sat down, the waiter came to our table and asked us what we wanted to drink, we told him; he brought out our drinks in a reasonable amount of time. He asked if we knew what we wanted... More

Carrabba's is almost like cheating on your spouse, without the obvious implications. The quality of food, outstanding attention to detail never disappoints. Whether seafood or steak, their cuisine is second to none.

Our biggest complaint was the wait for seating ... which in and of itself is normally not a problem with us, we can be patient. However, there were two or three other couples, a large group and a couple smaller groups waiting at the same time. We counted at a minimum 6 2-seat tables sitting empty during our whole wait....

We were traveling, it was freezing outside, but we wanted a nice dinner to celebrate birthdays. Hopped in here on a whim. The staff was limited because inclement weather was coming and they had sent some folks home. Even a bit short staffed our waitress was amazing. The salad and bread was a nice start before our fettuccini arrived. We... More

My family came from 3 hours away to celebrate my birthday that nite and mothers day the next. We were seated at the last table just before the back door which was the carryout door (but we never saw one item carried out..just employees in and out in and out with nothing but cigarettes) and it was noisy at best...

My family flew in from many areas of the country to celebrate our parents 30th anniversary. We where given Rick as a server, and it was a NIGHTMARE!! Rick was rude, impatient, and seemed to be bother that we wanted to take our time, since some of us haven't seen each other in a few years. Then he didn't write... More

One of my favorite entrees is the Chicken Marsala - wood-grilled and topped with mushrooms, prosciutto and Lombardo Marsala wine sauce. Fabulous! There are two wonderful fish entrees. The first, Tilapia Nicciola is hazelnut encrusted, topped with roma tomatoes and a basil lemon butter sauce. Second, the Mahi Wulfe is wood-grilled and topped with artichokes, sundried tomatoes and the same... More
