We had been to this same Carrabba's once before and had been very impressed all around. This visit was the total opposite however. To start with when we arrived it wasn't overly busy and there were many empty tables. We were shown to a table that was very easily the worst table in the place. It shouldn't have even been an option for anyone. It was situated next to the emergency door directly across from the end of the bar where the sodas are dispensed from a nozzle and all the "extra odd stuff" was sort of put there for lack of having it anywhere else. The cash register station and sliver ware was also within 10 feet of us so we got to hear all the dramatic discussions between the waitstaff over why the mistakes they had made were made and all the apologizing to each other and on and on through out the entire meal. The table was covered with crumbs, oil drops and old shredded cheese which I found amazing that the girl who seated us was unable to see as she set our menus down on top of the mess. The waitress was also oblivious to the mess as she placed our napkins on top of it all. I used the napkins to clean the table myself. Our waitress was cheery however I feel at my age (56) a young lady of about 22 shouldn't be continually calling me honey, sweetie etc. I felt like I was talking to "Flo" from the local truck stop. The appetizer was a flat bread that was burned all around the edges. It was more like eating a large cracker with a topping. My husbands lobster mac&cheese was very good but the shrimp risotto was pretty tasteless and the shrimp would have been better is they had been deveined. We declined dessert although the items offered looked very good. At that point we proceeded wait and wait and wait for our bill.
