The latest menu was rather limited. Portion size was tiny. Seems like I enjoyed it more in the past. Olive Garden is more my thing.

My son and his family from Asheville, NC met my wife and I from Castlewood, VA at Carrabba's for a Father's Day treat -- it was excellent. Johnson City is about half way between our homes and is a convenient place for us to meet occasionally. My wife and I enjoyed the Fettuccine Wessie and all the entrees served were... More

We have eaten at Carrabbas restaurants from Florida to Ohio and always had a great dining experience. This time, wasn't good. Took forever to get served, the food wasn't good and the bread was hard and not edible. So, have to give only 3 stars

Had another great meal here. Stephanie, our waitress, is among their best, if not their best, and she took good care of us as always. Love their homemade salad dressings on baby romaine! And the pasta and sauces are delicious! The bread is not my favorite at all, too plain, and today way way too dried out and stale, but... More

Chicken marsala is my favorite! I love the Sicilian chicken soup when I'm sick. It's spicy but hearty and rich. My 9 yr old loves the kids spaghetti and meatball. Great portions. Pricey to eat here a lot but it is so worth it! The fresh bread and dipping oil is the best beginning to an always enjoyable meal.

On 6/11 after a car show 20 of us went to Carrabba's in Johnson City, TN. Not only did they have our table(s) ready the service was perfect. We were seated and our drinks were ordered and brought out right away. They also brought out the fresh bread and oil for dipping quickly as well. Our orders were taken and... More

Went with another couple on a Saturday night, busy as usual. Service was as expected. Food was good, as expected. Carrabba's has always been on the higher end of prices in the chain restaurant world. 2 apps, 4 entrees, 2 cocktails, 2 beers, 2 sweet teas, tip = $175, pretty expensive night out for casual dining. Here's the rub for... More

Rainy afternoon, in the mood for Italian food. We have eaten here before. Off main times for service, so had the place pretty much to ourselves. I had the lasagna, husband had a fettuccine. I really liked mine, he was not impressed. But when we get another craving for Italian, we will be back.

Dinner on the porch in the warm sun was the best! Ran into friends, had the best server- Michael Baker- and enjoyed our food.
