My family and travel a lot and no mater where we are the Carrabba's Italian Grill chain seems to be very consistent. This location is no exception, our food was great, and our server Alex was great. He was friendly, professional, and thoughtful. The kids menu offers good options for my kids and is reasonably priced. My steak wasn't that... More

Food was very good. Service, well. Waitress was working a party of six next to us. I understand busy. But she continued to chat them up while we sat and waited for her to even acknowledge us. Manager had said she would be right with us. She wasn't and he noticed. He came over and got our drink orders. A... More

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.
