We used to eat at this Carrabba's location on a regular basis when the proprietor was Scott Lepson. Wow, have things changed since he relocated! This is our second time trying this restaurant since he has been gone and the last time was bad and this time was even worse. First of all, the restaurant was fairly empty on a... More

Portions have become really small, prices have remained the same. Specially noticeable on appetizers. Chicken Bryant is half of the portion it used to be. I realize they must be competitive priced but they really cut down the portions

Chose this place because of its close location to the interstate and other recommendations on trip advisor. Food is good but not my favorite place for this type of food. I prefer local non-chain restaurant but was pleasantly surprised by the quality and amount of food you get for the price.

On September 23, 2016 we came to Carrabba's to celebrate my parents 54th Wedding Anniversary. I had ordered Fettucine Weesie for dinner. The pasta was overcooked. My polite waitress apologized and took the plate away to have the kitchen recook a new batch. I had to wait another 30 minutes to receive the second plate which is inexcusable !! When... More

I am not one to review chain restaurants but recently ate here and had the best service! Dinner was hot and delicious. The salad was a bit disappointing though. Lettuce was brown and wilted. The bartender had a bit of a heavy hand with the drinks :)

Went to this place to celebrate my daughter's and mother's birthday. The service was terrible my mother's salmon came to the table raw and had to be sent back. Everyone's sides were cold and my pork chops were not cooked well done like I requested. I don't think we will ever eat at this place again.

In the area for business and this was in walking distance from my hotel. No wait for seating and service was great. Try the chicken Bryan - it was great - Wood-grilled and topped with goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, basil and lemon butter sauce.

We visited this location early on a Friday night before it was too crowded. It was the worst service we've ever had at a Carrabba's. The food was good and hot, but the service would keep me from ever coming back here. Our server was too busy working on her fake English accent to be concerned with serving the table.... More

Always a great experience at Carraba's. My family enjoys this place. Last night's visit was great as well when it comes to good attentive service. My meal was delicious and the bread and appetizer were spot on. However my wife and daughter's Parmesan Chicken was a bit on the crispy dry side. The soup and salad were good as usual.... More
