We showed up about 8 pm on a Saturday night and the place was still packed. (no waiting for a table, though.) The service was quick and on point, the food was fresh and hot, and even though we took our time and were not rushed, we were still out of there in 40 minutes. (thats with soup/salad to begin,...

I just love this place. For a chain, I think Carrabba's has a great atmosphere and top-notch food. I also think it is reasonably priced for what you get. We were in town for the Ironman race and wanted a simple, safe meal. This was a perfect place for that. My wife and I each got grilled chicken and pasta.... More

My daughter and I used to love coming to this restaurant. With the menu changes, however, we don't go often anymore. Tonight, we decided to give Carrabba's a try again and it was a bit disappointing. Our salads were good--we had both Caesar and House salads at our table. Fresh, crisp lettuce and just the right amount of dressing too.... More

Went there because of the close proximity to my hotel and ordered Spaghetti with Bolognese saice. The restaurant was almost empty yet it still took a long time to get our food. When it arrived, I received a small bowl of plain spaghetti noodles topped with a couple tablespoons of sauce. The noodles were cooked perfectly but I had to... More

First time to Carrabas, and most likely to return. Great atmosphere and food. Our Waitress made sure our needs were met (especially my increased thirst for water), lol.

Pretty good Italian food on a Sunday afternoon with family and friends. Each person in our party ordered a different menu selection. All of them were very good. The service was excellent. The server was attentive without being a nuisance.

The experience here has always been consistent for me. I typically order the same thing every time I go, but sometimes venture outside of my comfort zone. They offer a full bar and have a half price happy hour most of the time. It's a great place for couples or just to relax over a good meal.
