“Really Tasty - Not Your Typical Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

My favorite item on the menu is the Chicken Bryan! Chicken breast Topped with goat cheese and sundried tomatoes drizzled with a lemon butter sauce. I usually order the Chicken Trio that features the Chicken Bryan along with the Marsala and Rosa Maria. Always order Cavatappi Amatriciana as my side. Start with the Sicilian Chicken Soup! Yummy! Always come away with leftovers. If you go at 6:00 pm, be prepared to wait. It seems there is always a line in season. If you go off-hours, you get your table preference quickly. You can dine outside during the cooler months which is delightful at this location since it overlooks a large man made pond. Avoid outside dining during months with little/no rain. The pond gets that 'funky mucky' smell where the water no longer covers the banks.

“Now open for Lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

I enjoy the Pizza at Carrabba's and my wife like their Mediterranean Salad. Carrabba's is a chain but the food is good. The Carrabba's in Royal Palm Beach decor is more up scale than the Carrabba's we eat at in Atlanta.
The service here has always been good and the quality of there food is just fine.
Carrabba's Royal Palm Beach just started to open for lunch about 3 weeks ago so this trip to the area we decided to give it a try for lunch on a Saturday. ALERT -- Saturday & Sundays they are open for lunch, BUT they do not server off the lunch menu, they use the regular dinner menu.
Kind of strange since lunch is lunch regardless of what day of the week it is.
So my was was a bit disappointed because the Mediterranean Salad is not on the dinner menu.
Still we had a nice lunch and the food was good.

“Salty Foods!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

I have been to this restaurant a few times on vacation and it continues to serve foods that are "very salty" tasting. 6 out of 8 of our dishes were returned due to the heavy salt taste. Even their salad dressing and calamari appetizers were very salty. If you've got high BP...beware! This may not be the place for you. We found out through the kitchen manager last night that their grilled seasoning is what makes the foundation of their grilled items. So if you order "grilled items" you may want to ask for no seasoning or light seasoning only!

“The best clams in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

If you like clams, you have go here! They don't count the calms you just get a bowl full, with bread to dip into the butter broth! My husband and I always share it and ask for more fresh bread! This is our treat, as we all know bread is not the best for you! Its a deal and go at happy hour where the drinks are 2 for 1! If you don't eat clams there are plenty of other mouth water items on the menu!

“Late pm cravings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We have eaten here before but our last visit was based on the short wait on the weekend, the food is good(I realy love the bread) We love pasta and the idea of choosing small portions on some ocassions. The wait staff is always couteous and helpfull.
