The food was good, but we waited 15 minutes before anyone came to our table to take our drink orders and that was only because my husband got up and asked the host why no one had come to our table. It seems it was a communication error between the host and server. Once that was fixed, the service was... More

10/15/16. Late night dinner that hit the spot after an early wedding dinner. I've never had a bad meal at any Carrabba's. Pork tenderloins always satisfies as does the bread! Service is the one exception that varies at this franchise but it was busy this night so dinner took a little longer than we would have liked.

Everything is made fresh and you can tell! My husband and I enjoy menu items like the Chicken Marsala, Chicken Bryan, Brick oven pizzas, canolis, bread with olive oil, lentil soup and also their Italian salad.

My husband and I rarely eat out as we prefer to cook at home and enjoy fresh ingredients in our meals so we are quite picky when it comes to the traditional "chains". Carrabba's is one of the few exceptions to this rule. This one serves an abundant serving of whatever you order. We often order 2 appetizers and split... More

Consistently good! Marsala chicken is excellent, never found anything that comes close! Lots of beer and wines to choose from and the service is always great. Try the Shrimp and Scallops Spiedino, not sure I spelled it right but it's to die for!!

The food and atmosphere is good. Prices a bit higher for smaller portions. Can be noisy at times as well. Overall a good dining experience.

It was okay... The service was awesome, but the food was lacking. Everything we ordered was a little off. The mussels were too lemony, the pasta was overcooked, and my chicken parmesean was a whole chicken breast (not even butterflied). Like I said it wasn't horrible, just meh.

Thank Lindsey L
