Carrabbas's is my favorite restaurant. This is the first time at this location. I compared it to ours in Roanoke, VA. The food wasn't as tasty but had a nice time talking with John our waiter. The staff was nice & knew some people at the Roanoke restaurant.

30 of us met for lunch, for a retirement party for a nurse. We were given the back room, which was set up with tables for 4, and one large round one. It was easy to get in & out and walk around to socialize. Our waiters were Jacob and Justin (not sure of the names, but 2 "J" names... More

We had a wonderful family meal here last night. Justin H waited on us, and did a great job, while keeping really busy on a holiday week. He had a nice sense of humor, and was quick to smile and get all five of us anything we wanted. The food was outstanding--I can't believe this is a chain restaurant. We... More

We go to Carrabba's a lot and enjoy all the meals the salad, soups, apps and desserts. Lots of times they are running special deals and you can come home with a full meal for sometime during the week if you freeze it or eat it 2 days later.

Eaten here several times and it does not disappoint ever. Lacks the artistry of Mama Zu's, but in a safer and more accessible location. By far the best chain restaurant for Italian food and their almost overuse of garlic makes the place memorable. Don't waste your time or money going to Olive Garden and eating food with diluted tastes and... More

Consider this restaurant. Although it is a chain restaurant the food seems non-chain. Excellent menu. The mussels and calamari are excellent.

Soccer tournament weekend landed a team of 14 yr old girls and their parents at Carrabbba's after a long day of soccer. Although there seemed to be some mix up with our reservations and our tables were not ready for 30 mins, once seated the service and food were fine.

The picture of this meatball on TV and on the menu shows the mozzarella oozing out of the meatball. The actual meatball was a disappointment...hardly any cheese and no cavity in the meatball for the cheese. The manager stopped by our table and asked how we liked it and it tasted good but no cheese. She said when the meatball... More

Came for my husband birthday. We came early so no need for reservations. We ordered calamari as an appetizer, Cesar salad, cioppino, spaghetti meatball and fettuccine with shrimps. All just wonderful including the service.
