Stopped for dinner, hoping for the usual Carrabbas excellent experience. We got it, and in a busy crowd. Service was top-notch, food as well. Will remember this one when we travel through again.

James and Tara welcomed us to this chain restaurant that seemed more like a 5 STAR restaurant with service that exceeded any expectation and was simply amazing, as if we were family . From the minute we walked through the door until we left, the graciousness of staff, the excellent service and the outstanding food left us wondering if this... More

Went to Carrabas tonight and asked waiter about wine special. He told us it was wine which had almost reached "expiration date". He clearly was trying to upsell us but telling us anything being served was not fresh did not start us in good place. When food came I was asked if I wanted cheese on anything. I said I... More

Went here recently with 2 friends... the waiter did accidentally spill water on me about 3 times but he gave us a lot of bread so I really cannot complain. The spaghetti with sauce was good, however the "chicken parm lasagna" was just 4 pieces of small chicken stacked on top of one another.. strange!

This is my second time at this location and again, the food is good but the service is sloooow. I just don't get it. Both times we came at an off hour, when there were only a few tables but we could see the kitchen staff was all there. This time I waited at least 10 minutes for an iced... More

Food and service always good, though some cannot fathom eating at a chain. A bit noisy at times, and evenings can get very busy since this location is near UF, but they manage to get you seated quickly. Parking can be a problem on busy nights also, so just be patient!

Slow, slow service. Waited 45 minutes for food after ordering. When we got the food is was warm not hot. Bathroom door is sticky. The room is messy and was out of towels. I've eaten there before and it was okay but it has gone downhill. I don't think it was just a bad waiter.

Food was good my wife had Lasagna and I had rigatoni. Menu selection seemed a little sparse. Service was about what I would have expected from a chain restaurant good but not spectacular. Prices were higher than the equivalent meal at some non chain restaurants in the area.

Stopped on way back from South Florida and enjoyed dinner there. Had very good service and food was very good. This is our second time at this restaurant and will return next time in area.
