“Simply delicious”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We stopped here for an early Saturday dinner. We had been here a few weeks earlier and were looking forward to the special pasta bowl buy one get one. That special had ended. So, after that disappointment we searched the menu for a different selection,,I chose a small grilled chicken breast with seasonal vegetables. The waiter brought bread to our table, and it was warm and good for dipping in the herbed olive oil.
Our dinner came out nice and hot. The simple flame broiled chicken breast was tender and juicy with the most delicious flavor! Seasonal vegetables were great! I ordered the smaller portion and it was just enough for me, bigger appetites will want to order the larger portion for sure.
The service was good, and the price was fair. We don't drink but my water came out with extra lime just like I asked. This location seems to have its act together!

“Take out lunch”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Today we had Carrabba's take-out for lunch. It was delicious and still hot by the time we got back to our house. The food is tasty and flavorful. We didn't have to wait long for the food once we got there.

“Great ambiance and food”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

From the start with fresh bread and oil to dip to the Mama's Soup to the main course- absolutely delicious. Garlic smashed potatoes very good along with very tender veal marsala
Spaghetti was excellent as well.
If you have room for dessert try the vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce and chocolate!!!

“Favorite Local Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Even though Carrabba's is a chain restaurant, it always serves fresh Italian food. Not a pasta lover, I can always find a veal, chicken, fish or steak dinner with a little pasta on the side that I enjoy here. Prices are reasonable to a little high.

“Yum!”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Lots of food and fun for the kiddies! They do cater to people with food allergies, so I like that a lot!
