Haven't been here in quite a while due to a Celiac diagnosis and history of not great options...So glad I came back!! Their GF menu has expanded a lot and the gluten free pasta itself is the best I have had outside of Italy. Service was friendly and reasonably quick and the ambiance was pleasant. Will definitely be back!

They seem to be in decline. The last couple of times we have not been happy. I have to give them credit, when I told the server I didn't want a box for the remainder of my shrimp and scallops because it really wasn't very good, he at least took my entrée off the bill. We ordered mozzarella sticks as... More

I have eaten carrabba's in 4 different states and this is one of my favorites. I've eaten here 3 times and the first 2 were amazing, the last was not so great. Wait staff was slow and food not great as usual , but all places have a off night. I always recommend to friends , one of my favorite... More

Arrived on a Wednesday night. The parking lot was full and I was lucky to find an open space. However, I did not have to wait and was immediately ushered to a table. The waitress was friendly. The menu had changed since the last time I was there. They do offer several "specials" for a limited time only. I elected... More

Ate dinner here last night. We all had the big meatball dish. It was ok. Nothing to write home about. Dinner with tip was $70. Way too expensive for what we got. Service was fabulous. We were seated by the door which made our dinner very drafty. I was a little disappointed in the food to say the least. The... More

It really isn't a secret, except that our usual time is Sunday after church, and we never have to wait. The recent refurbishing of the restaurant--which we thought unnecessary because it was always very attractive--made the environment even better than ever. As light eaters, we always ask that an entree be split, and there has never, in our several years... More

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
