Very good food & service. Lunch visit after medical visit to Nashville. 2 orders of Caesar salad and 2 orders of chicken pasta Alfredo. The service was very quick with the salads, entrees, and drink refills. Used a Dine-Reward earned discount. Our server was well versed with the use of the discount program. One of our favorite places to eat... More

I tried the lasagna and it was delicious. The spicy wings and callimari were good also. It is a little expensive but worth it.

I'm just not a big fan of Carrabba's. I've dined at this location a few times. It's clean and has a great ambiance. The service is good, too. However, I just don't like the taste of their food. I prefer the Olive Garden to Carrabba's.

It's more of an upscale wannabe. It's really good, don't get me wrong, but when you copy another restaurant right down to the building style and napkins (not Olive Garden), you should copy the best of that restaurant. If you like Romano's that much, be a franchise. I'm a simple person. If you can do good basic food right, you... More

First time dining and most likely the last. We were seated with a server who had tables on both sides of us. Our server took our order brought our food one glass of tea and the check. She doted on the tables around us but not us. The food was fair but nothing spectacular for the price. I have made... More

We like the menu and alcohol selection here, many times this place is packed so we often take seating in the bar. Even when packed the service is fast and attentive, you'll mean some nice people sitting in this area.

Called to place an order to what had been my favorite restaurant, person answered and asked me to hold, and after 14 minutes and 24 seconds later she took me off hold. After I explained I’d been on hold for that long, all she could say was sorry. She showed no interest in trying to make it right via a... More

I have seen previous reviewers who didn’t seem to have a good experience and wondered how that could happen since my other visits (at least 8) to Carrabba’s were basically fine. Tonight, I totally understand. We were seated quickly because we used their call-ahead feature. Ran to the ladies room and could not believe how messy it was. Toilet paper... More
