Carrabba's if the place I go when I am going out for a special dinner. My birthday for instance. The food is good and the service always quick and friendly. I love the marsala dishes, either chicken or steak. Chicken Brian is also a favorite.

I have been here before and I always enjoyed the food. I came for lunch and I had the soup and half sandwich. The minestrone was AWFUL. It tasted like weak cabbage water. The veggies were hard. The cabbage in it was stringy. I have had it before and it was never this bad. I ordered the half sandwich with... More

I normally don't eat at chain restaurants but Carrabba's is the exception. They always have excellent food and service at an awesome price. They're always busy at dinnertime but also offer larger community tables in the bar area or seating along the pizza-prep area if you don't want to wait for a table. My husband and I have eaten at...

We made reservations, were seated within ten minutes of our early arrival. Husband's filet mignon was wonderful, as was my chicken piccata. We were served by six different servers (I counted) -- which led to feeling that we were on a conveyer belt and were widgets, not patrons. Small niceties lost on the way -- e.g. serving desserts on top... More

Stopped in for an early dinner while shopping and had a wonderful meal. Service was excellent (props to Ethan) and food was fresh, tasty and generously sized so we had some to take away. Don't forget to ask for AAA/AARP discount (15%). See you next time.

We came on for an early dinner around 5:00pm. We were immediately seated in a lovely booth by a window. Our server Randi greeted us in short order. Answered questions about menu offerings and made suggestions with regard to entree and appetizer. Chicken and steak dishes were prepared perfectly; tasted great - came with squash/tomato medley. Bread and oil/with basil,... More

Outstanding menu, beverages, and coffee. Features booths and tables. Get served with bread and special olive oil. Servers are knowledgeable and helpful. Minestrone is special!

Food is great. Service can be hit or miss. Would not recommend late Saturday night. The staff is worried about getting to the after party. This has occurred on two occasions.

I got a simple wood grilled chicken dish and did not care for it. The wait is usually long regardless of how busy and it was very expensive

My boyfriend and I went to Carrabba's to celebrate our one year of dating. I have been there before, he never was. I have always had great service from the wait staff. The food is delicious and made fresh. I had the Mezzalunna (not sure of the exact spelling). It is half moon ravioli stuffed with chicken, ricotta and spinach... More
