“Italian Grill-- calamari the best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

I love the calamari at Carrabba. Eat it beside the Italian bread with the olive oil diping sauce and yummy. Normally on Friday nights, there is a waiting period to be seated, Come for an early dinner and you are able to be seated right away. Get an appetizer. If by yourself, sit at the bar by the cooks. they will often give you samples of things they are cooking.

“Surprisingly good Italian, but a chain ...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2012

Average for a Carrabba's, which is really surprisingly good Italian food. But, as a chain restaurant, it follows a predictable format. This particular outlet follows the format well, with the only real variable being your server.

“Great carry out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

I was very tired and did not feel like going through the experience of dining at the restaurant....so I decided to try carryout. The crab cake and friend zucchini was very good. I will remember this when I am in other cities and am feeling tired.

“Very dissapointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2012

We frequently visit carrabba's in Hunt Valley. As a matter of fact, this has been one of our favorite restaurants. We usually sit at the counter and watch the food preparation which used to be a fine oiled machine. Upon recent observation, the equipment is in old and terrible condition. The food preparers are sloppy and the cooking area is very dirty . It clearly shows and absense of the proprietor's interest in running the restaurant to its past high standards.

This is not a critisism, it is an honest attempt to revive one of our favorite eating establishments to its former status.

John needs to take a good look at his food prepartation and take appropriate steps.

Your loyal customers Lynn and Charlie
