We enjoyed the fiery chicken wings and main courses of pasta and meatballs - both accompanied by a generous portion salad. Portions generally were very generous. Definitely won't need to eat the inflight meal.......

We used to be regulars but have gotten more & more dissatisfied with the service. Servers & Host staff turn over frequently either due to this being a training location or management issues. Service is slow and staff is casual in their attitude - stopping to chat with fellow employees frequently. We've experienced every service delay there is it seems... More

For a real taste of Italy, come to Carrabba's. I adore the all the chicken dishes but the chicken Marsala is my favorite. My husband agrees with me though he struggles with decision whether to order chicken or fettuccine Alfredo. (you can order a side of fettuccine with and meal but is strictly the noodles in sauce)..Despite the elegance of... More

Took my previous boss and good friend out for his birthday lunch. We were both eating healthy so he and I both had the strawberry salad with salmon and it was delicious. Shared some coffee and he had his usual espresso. Great service,

We ordered the take-out and were not disappointed. Unlike many places that put effort into take-out orders, Carrabba's did. Our portions were large, warm, and well-priced. would highly recommend.

Overall these are nice places. This one is OK. Service is a little slow and you get the impression of indifference, and the application of the menu selections is eh.

Carrabba's has been in our regular rotation for a while now, mostly because my wife is addicted to their gluten-free Chicken Bryan. Today I had one of their Amore Monday specials... Fettucine Weesie, with an Italian salad and the Meatballs and Ricotta Small Plate for a starter. The meatballs were warm at best (not hot) and kind of bland, but... More

Smaller than most Carrabba's with same pretty good food. We ordered soup and some small appetizers. The soup was served lukewarm so we sent it back to be reheated. When it came back our bowl of soup was about 1/2 bowl of soup so they did bring out another cup to make up the difference. The meatball and stuffed mushrooms... More
