“Could have been better!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Carrabba's is usually fantastic but I have realized that it depends on what you order. My husband had the Chicken Bryan which he said was wonderfully delicious but my Shrimp Linguine left a lot to be desired. The shrimp pieces were small and few but the linguine was way out of proportion and not very tasty. Being of Italian descent, I know good sauce and this was not anything to write home about. The place was extremely noisy and crowded but probably due to the Monday night specials on the menu. Will try it again but on another day.

“As always great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

As usual we have experienced another great night here. Great fresh food and excellent service. This location is consistent and the managers seem to keep a watchful eye on the staff to make sure the food gets to the table quickly.

“Tasty, clean and good ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

I believe this Carrabba's is better than one I'd been to in another city years ago. Better service, better layout and the menu was revved up a notch. It's usually very crowded from 6-8 so try either earlier or later. Good and imaginative Italian food and while priced a little high for a chain we've always had a good experience there.

“Tasty Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

We were there for an early dinner. Service was very attentive. We haven't been here in years and we had a coupon for $8.00 off a new menu item, so we decided to try it. Hubby ordered a happy hour beer and I had Shrimp and Scallop Linguine and he had the Italian Classics, which is Chicken Parm and Lasagna. All items tasted very good and fresh. The Lasagna portion was very tiny. We enjoyed the warm bread and tasty dipping oil. Our salads were cold and fresh. The prices seem a little steep compared to some of our other favorite Italian restaurants in the area. Price was over $29 after the coupon.

“Tiny, overpriced drinks”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

I ordered a premium Martini, paid north of 10 dollars for it. The bar tender diligently measured the specific amount if vodka. The glass wound up looking more empty than full. I was unsatisfied with the value. Their food is good, but almost11 dollars for a tiny cocktail is not ok. I will not be back.
