Wide variety menu. Large eating area so no wait time even around 6pm. Waitress was pleasant and took care of us. Food was ok at best with a hint of microwave cooking even though I'm sure it wasn't but you didn't get the home cooked taste of Italian dishes. Need to eliminate the happy hour since they only feature their... More

Whenever we're in this area, we eat at Carrabba's a couple of times. This time, we ordered by Internet because we arrived real late and the food exceeded our expectations. Then, we had a family dinner that everyone loved. We'll be back.

I like the food here especially the Chicken Brian. The service is a bit stiff. The last time I had an awesome server was when Lindsey was there (she is down the street at tx roadhouse now). If you only care about the food and don't mind sub par service this is for you.

We stopped there after golf. Service was great. The food was average in quality and actually not worth the price,

I ate here, but I'm having a bit of trouble remembering much about it. I seem to remember a house salad, OK, but nothing to write home about. There was an entree and a side. Hmmm, the side was spaghetti, a little too wet for my taste, but not unusual. What was the main course? Thinking... OK, it was prosciutto-wrapped... More

No complaints but not as good as in the past. At these prices a steak should be above reproach. I ate it but I wasn't happy about it.

We got there after 9 and they were still very accomodating and nice. Food was great, service knowledgeable and patient. Always my choice for date night.

Went for lunch, ordered the mussels and they were rancid. yes rancid. very disappointing. SO BAD that we called over the manager right away to let him know. Unfortunately, he is not good at customer service and wanted to argue rather than just take the food away and apologize. He never did come back to talk to us, our waitress... More

We had a large party and the restaurant easily accommodate our party. Our party included grand parents, parents, aunts and uncles and college graduates. Everyone got what they wanted and the wait staff was friendly and accommodating. The food was good and plentiful. We would definitely go again for a regular meal or large dinner party. They would handle both... More

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch on a really busy Sunday. Service could not have been better and the food was outstanding. The menu offers so many wonderful dishes it is hard to decide what to order. Our server brought out a complimentary basket of their delicious homemade bread with dipping oil. It was warm, crusty & delicious. My husband had the... More
