We visit this Carrabba's several times a year as it is one of my husband's and my favorite restaurants in our town. The food is always great and we always get great service from the staff, and the manager is ALWAYS walking around making sure you meal and service are excellent. He's the type of manager who pitches in when... More

An average chain Italian restaurant, food is OK, but nothing special. Relatively close to I 94, decent parking.

You can count on this location of the franchise to be consistent. I've been here a half dozen times in the last year and the service and food have always been at the same level. Other locations can't seem to cook a pizza but this one can. The young woman we had last week was a very pleasant employee and... More

Fast service. Fettuccine could have used a bit more chicken. Staff was curious and friendly. No wait.

Great atmosphere and so-so food. The prosciutto wrapped pork tenderloins were so overpowered with salt that I couldn't taste the pork medallions. The fettuccini Alfredo was bland with not much sauce. Atmosphere a 4, food a 2+ or 3-.

We had a great lunch here with friends. I had the stuffed meatball. It was really good. The chocolate dessert was amazing! Service very good. We'll return!

Might not be authentic, but it has good flavors. The waitresses are really nice. The food is fresh. Some things on the menu are very good. Don't get the raviolis, they're no good. Better than Olive Garden

Came here after the Olive Garden had an hr 1/2 wait. We waited 20 mins and got a great waitress. I ordered a pomegranate martini, daughter got Blackberry martini. I ordered the gaint meatball with spaghetti, comes with a salad and 1 side. Daughter got Fettuccine Carrabba without the mushrooms. The drinks were awesome! Salad was ok, to many big... More

Tonight was our first time at this location and any Carrabba's Italian Grill in general. Interaction with hostesses was pleasant and we got seated right away, even though place was kind of busy. We really liked the atmosphere and staff we encountered, including our waitress Nicole who was appropriately attentive, both friendly and professional and service was top notch. We... More

My favorits meal here is the linguine positano (wood grilled chichen and linguine cooked with fresh basil, garlic, and crushed tomatoes)-it is absolutely bursting with flavor! I don't think I've ever had a bad meal here. The decor inside is elegant and I love the outdoor patio too.
