In the area for business and this was in walking distance from my hotel. No wait for seating and service was great. Try the chicken Bryan - it was great - Wood-grilled and topped with goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, basil and lemon butter sauce.

We visited this location early on a Friday night before it was too crowded. It was the worst service we've ever had at a Carrabba's. The food was good and hot, but the service would keep me from ever coming back here. Our server was too busy working on her fake English accent to be concerned with serving the table.... More

Always a great experience at Carraba's. My family enjoys this place. Last night's visit was great as well when it comes to good attentive service. My meal was delicious and the bread and appetizer were spot on. However my wife and daughter's Parmesan Chicken was a bit on the crispy dry side. The soup and salad were good as usual.... More

WE visited this place and the food quality has gone downhill. The appetizer for Calamari was over cooked and the mussel dish has diminished

Sat at the pizza bar area. Got to chat with the chef and get samples of things to try. We each ordered a different pizza and it was great. Fresh light and crisp crust. Got to watch him make our pies and it was pippin hot from the fire stone oven. Love their blackberry sangria. Good quality food as always... More

We had a party of 25 after a busy dance competition weekend. We called ahead (by about 10 minutes) and we were seated immediately. The food was great, we didn't wait overly long and they even separated checks for us. Would definitely return again.

It was a decent chain restaurant. Basically the same as the rest of the Carrabbas. This one, the restaurant was pretty clean. Could have been paid more attention to by the staff. The food was about the same as the others. Could have been more flavor and thought put into my dish. The cost was alittle beefy, but that's what... More

I enjoy Carrabba's from time to time, but this establishment must be the most annoying restaurant I've ever been to. The waitress I had, though prompt and attentive, had the annoying habit of calling me "love" every chance she has. Maybe she thinks it's cute. I'm not her love, and don't want to be. Just serve the food please. Then... More

We had a very nice evening. Shannon took care of us and made sure we didn't run out of drink or bread. I had the linguine and clams...it was very good. Pam had the spaghetti and meatballs. She said the sauce and meat were hot and delicious. Our meal was complete with tiramisu. It was creamy and flavorful. Everything was... More
