The food was fine, nothing gourmet, just a heap of fairly good Italian-American grub. Our server, however, was great. The place was hopping but he was so friendly and relaxed we felt like the only people in the place. He was patient and recommended good dishes.

We walked to Carrabba's from our hotel. We visited on a Wednesday night and it was fairly busy. The bartender was not the friendliest - you had to flag him down if you wanted something. For that reason, we decided to get a table for dinner. Our server was great! I was with a semi-demanding group, and he catered to each one of their requests without hesitation. I had the haddock - not the best. The shrimp diavlo (?) was very tasty. The calamari was quite salty. They had a special on the menu which ended up being a TON of food for a decent price. I would recommend this restaurant for the value and the service.
PS - They will deliver if you are staying in the nearby hotels (Hyatt Place, Holiday Inn, etc.)

Desired an old reliable while attending a conference.

Knew the menu and wine list.

This restaurant chain is superior to many Italian chains.

Recommend.

So, this is a great restaurant. Here is our 'secret' - stay away from the pasta. Let's be realistic, you can make pasta at home with a zillion sauce options. Why go out and do the same thing?

What makes Carrabba's such a tractor-beam for us is the quality of their chicken dishes and grilled seafood. They are outstanding - each and every dish.

We love the Chicken Bryan. Wow. Perfectly prepared.

Or try the fire-grilled shrimp and scallops. Definitely very "Rome" (yes, I have been to Rome many a time and can make the comparisons!). Start with a Ceasar Salad - always made fresh and somehow just perfect. All the side vegatables are excellent, although their garlic mashed potatoes are wonderful.

As for deserts - they look good but we have never indulged.

Service is very good.

We return time and again to this location - the quality is very consistently high.
