“Overpriced for mediocre food and small portions.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We went with a group on a Saturday at noon, there were maybe two other tables full. That should be enough review, and I should have walked out at that moment!
It is extremely expensive for small portions of low quality food. It honestly wasn't even mediocre on taste. I'm not a huge fan of Olive Garden but I would go there in a heartbeat over this place.

“usta be good”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

For a long time this was on our short list of "go to" restaurants when we were too busy to cook. When the mussels arrived, I noticed that many had not opened and the rest were rubbery and difficult to eat. The sauce was also of poor quality. I should know since I have had that dish there many times. We also ordered a mixed seafood dish that was disappointing. The portion was not enough to feed even a small child. After discussions with the server, all he could offer was that there was a new chef who needed time! With dozens of similar restaurants nearby, such as Olive Garden, I doubt we'll ever go back.

“OMG my favorite restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

This is by far my favorite restaurant. I have eaten at other Carrabba's and this tops them all! Great Food Great Price. I can't figure out which dish I like the best so I get all three. The three chicken dish!

Really enjoyed our evening out. Waiter was friendly and helpful. Cheesecake for dessert was better than expected.

The wait staff and kitchen were prompt. Our waiter could have been more pleasant or friendly. The food was all excellent.
