Decent Italian chain restaurant, as good as chain restaurant can offer. Went with large family, some were vegetarians, it was not easy to pick meals for them. Prices a bit on higher side compared to what do you get. Nice atmosphere. Noticed one bearded cook in the kitchen without beard-net

During our golf trip to the Tampa area, we ate at Carrabba's twice as the service and food was top notch. The chef was very accommodating and prepared several "special meals" for our group.

Terrible reservation desk, called 2 hours in advance, reserved, but they gave it away to large party. Food was great, server was wonderful. Will never eat at this one ever again! Recommend you go else where for proper treatment.

I've been to this place dozens of times over the past several years. I've never had a huge problem except the time a waiter said that there was only $12 on my gift card when there was actually $80. I was fully reimbursed and I consider that incident to be about "one bad apple." My husband, mother, and I went... More

Just want to thank Kacey our server. She answered menu questions, came back to check on everything, has great timing, and very personable. We enjoyed our meals and wanted the management to know what a great job you do.

We stopped for lunch and the soup and salad are very good. The complimentary bread/dipping sauce is wonderful! The stuffed mushrooms are very good, also!

Four adults had dinner on a Saturday night. It gets busy, so I recommend getting there early. We were seated right away at 6:00pm. Carrabba's has the best Chocolate Martini. It's served with fudge around the rim of the glass! The food is excellent and consistent between locations. I recommend the John Cole dessert, which is caramelized pecans served with... More

I do not recommend that you use their car side service. The quality of food and service has greatly declined and so has the concern from management.

Carrabba's is known for its' seafood, so that is what I had!! the shrimp and scallop saute was truly delicious, with just the right amount of light crust. The serving size was more than adequate and presented very nicely. My friend had the mussels (my usual dish of choice!), which were yummy, too. Our service was also wonderful. We had... More
