Friendly service and great food every time we come. A bit of a drive for us from SC but always worth it. Hubby likes the Mahi Wolfe. Yum yum.

The food at this restaurant is fairly good but it is not extraordinary. Service can be spotty as well. The traditional dishes always seem to be properly prepared and by that I mean most popular dishes.

My husband and I have eaten here a few times as it is close by, they have a nice menu variety and the food is really good! On this occasion, I had the Wood Fired Chicken Caesar Salad and my husband had the Shrimp Orzo Arugula Salad. The chicken on my dish was REALLY good...definitely made the difference from being...

We always enjoy Carrabbas wherever we are. Their salads this season were just delicious. Their bread and olive oil is yummy. My husband really enjoyed the Chicken Marsala. It is always our go to place if we find one near our or on way to our destination.

Service was somewhat less than average. I ordered one of the new dishes, Chianti Chicken which comes with and arugula salad. Two little chicken breasts which were over seasoned and I think a bit over cooked. The Chianti sauce was nothing special. The arugula salad was drowning in the dressing. Just limp, not fresh or crisp. Maybe mine came from... More

45 minute wait on a Saturday night, guess that might be expected. Service was okay, had to wait for drink refills more than once. My food was fine, although we were with a group of 12 and my friends were disappointed, three because their Caesar salads were just iceberg lettuce, not Romaine, another because her lasagna was served cold and...

My son and i enjoyed a nice Mother's Day dinner here recently. He ordered the pork tenderloin medallions wrapped in prosciutto that was absolutely delicious. I had pasta with shrimp and scallops and a champagne cream sauce that was quite good. The bread and olive oil served before the meal was really good as well.

My husband and I came for an early lunch. He had the Meatball Sandwich and I had the Small Plate Lettuce Wrap. Both were very good as was the service. We have been here before and will be back.

I've eaten in numerous chain restaurants over the years. Carrabba's is one of the better ones - particularly this location. I've had a number of meals here and they've always been very good. I'm a bit of an Italian food snob so that's a pretty good rave

The food was very good, and so was the service. What else can you say about a chain, some Carrabba's are very good like this one, and some aren't so hot. This one is a winner !

Thank mark p
