Great service

We had the usual meal and it was great but the waitress made our meal. She was pleasant, attentive and a real pleasure. The place was clean and a nice atmosphere from other Carrabbas we've been to.

Took my niece for lunch for her first visit. The wait staff explained the menu and recommend an entree. Her choice was a steak, that was cooked to perfection. The lentil soup was excellent

Found they were open for lunch so we stopped in. Started with salads which were great. I got ravioli with meat sauce and it was great. My wife had pasta with a wine lemon sauce which she found it too heavy. The problem was the service Very slow. We would ask for things and it took too long to receive.... More

Carrabbas is definitely a chain, but sometimes that is a good thing if you can depend on getting a tasty meal of all your favorites. If you arrive during happy hour, you can get a glass and a half of their very tasty Pinot Grigio for the 6 oz price. Their bread is always delicious and fresh with both oil... More

We visit this restaurant at least once a week. The manager is on top of everything that happens, helping with serving tables, clearing tables and delivering food to customers. The vast menu and multiple options allow us to chose something different almost every visit. If you are looking for something special or off of the menu, then just ask and... More

If you love garlic and great service, check out this place. Will was our server...very attentive without being imposing. Sean, the manager came by to box our food and insure that we had a good experience. This is way beyond what I would expect of a chain restaurant.

Visited many times over the last six months and never disappointed. Good Italian food with excellent pastas. Good atmosphere, though can be noisy during peak hours. Great service, very pleasant and helpfull. Shrimp and Scampi dishes are top notch as well as the pasta. Recommend it for lunch and dinner.

We love this restaurant so much, the atmosphere, service and the food is awesome. We decided to take our daughters out to eat here. I was VERY DISAPPOINTED! The food was not good. I ordered the Damien, a combination of two entrees. It had scallops, shrimp and wood grilled salmon. My scallops and shrimp were overdone and the crust was... More
