“OK for a chain”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

We don't eat at Carrabb's a lot maybe once every 3 years. We found this restaurant the same as the others throughout the USA.
There was 5 of us dinning and my meal was left off the order. So there was a wait for mine. the manager comp a one free desert.
I do not believe that was the best way to handle that as then it mad the outers in our party maybe feel they need to order desert. So I got the desert to go.

“Consistently good food”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

I have dined in this particular restaurant for several years and have always been pleased with the consistency of the food. The management is solid and the staff has always been very professional and courteous. The Chicken Bryan is a favorite of mine, but I have never been disappointed with any of the entrees. I highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to dining there again soon.

“Great food, waitrees mis-lead us on prices, average service.”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

My wife and I just ate at the Johnson City, TN Carrabba's to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversory. The food was very good but the waitress mis-lead us on the pricing of specials. When we asked about drink specials, she told us that a quartino of wine was available for the price of a glass. Based on this we ordered 2 quartinos. When the bill came, we had been charged full price for the wine (an extra $10). We asked the waitress she stated that only "house" wines were eligable for the special price (she NOT state this upfront). We've been to this J.C. Carrabba's 3 times, with only 2 good experiences. We WON'T be back!

“Love the staff at this restaurant”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

I don't usually do reviews of chain restaurants because they're usually all the same. But this location is different. The staff at this restaurant consistently goes above and beyond to give good service and make sure you have a pleasant meal. We visit Johnson City at least once a year and we always eat at this restaurant at least once, this year we ate there twice! Being a chain, they can't control what is on their menu, but they make up for it with the best service around! Keep it up, guys!!
