“Another chain, but great if chosen correctly.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

We have frequented this place several times this year, never for dinner just for their great happy hour. Drinks were cheap and good and the appetizers were the same. We saw no reason to eat a regular meal since the bar menu at happy hour time was more than we could drink/eat anyway.

“Above average for a chain restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

The chicken dishes at Carrabba's are all very good, as is the veal parmigan. The bread they serve for dipping in the olive oil is also outstanding. While Carrabba's is a chain restaurant, it rises above the "chain" taste you get at some of the others.

“Food is ok-”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Carrabbas food is ok- but you pay alot more money for less food than Olive Garden, and Olive Garden's food is just as good & some is better!

“Great manager, great service, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

After battling traffic on Route 98 for 1 1/2 hrs., it was wonderful to come in to such a pleasant experience. We had used call-in seating, but still had to wait over 45 min. The owner greeted us very kindly and made sure we were taken care of and provided some free apps while waiting. The server was very prompt and nice and the food was very, very good all around. The 3 course for $15 special they have going on right now is a phenomenal deal. Had a great experience with a family of 11.
