Each time I return to Carrabba's I find something new to try. I have never been disappointed with the service or the quality of the food. Cararabba's is the best place for a special occasion.

What I love about the south is that everyone is so overly friendly and nice, however that didn't carry over to this spot. The waitress seemly offbeat, probably ready to go home, tired. Even the party next to us asked if the waitress seemed bothered or didn't want to be there. We agreed something wasn't right. Which is a shame.... More

We've been to this Carrabba's twice. Both experiences provided terrible service and really mediocre food. Worst part is, it's not super cheap either. For a comparable price you could get MUCH better food at Little Italy in Fayetteville. Service: Waitresses seem like high school girls who aren't very interested in genuinely taking care of their customers. Both visits here, our... More

Always packed, seems to take forever to get your food. It's not the best Italian restaurant in town. I'd recommend several others first.

Good service, choices of seating arrangements, adequate parking. Food was good Italian fare. Good portions and all you can eat bread with oil dipping for flavor.

The wait was 10-15 minutes, so I just grabbed an empty seat at the kitchen counter. It took a second for a server to pick me up as it seems to be kind of whoever comes along and wants to take counter customers, but from then on, she provided excellent service. The food was all excellent and fresh as well.... More

I ordered shrimp fettuccine at the bar and was predictably nice. The wine was fine. The bartender was extremely nice. If you want a low-key chain restaurant with decent pasta, okay, here you go.

I haven't visited this Carrabbas in over a year. The last dining experience was quite good as the food was excellent, not any more. I ordered the wood fired pizza with pepperoni, mushrooms and olives, the pizza was not properly cooked as the entire center area was soggy and mushy. It did not have the crispy crust I remembered was... More

Having worked in the restaurant business when I was younger, I appreciate local favorites especially when traveling. However, Carrabba's is always consistent. We enjoy dining at our local Carrabba's frequently and receive great service, great food and overall a great value for our dining experience.

Had dinner here last night and the atmosphere was great. since we came a little early the restaurant was some what quiet and we were seated quickly. Our waitress was very helpful with dinner. We started out with shrimp scampi as an appetizer and then we had caesar salads which my daughter loved. For my main course I had the... More
