The food was ok. Nothing special. Sort of bland. The service was adequate but not good. It was not busy so more as in for slow service

Carrabbas is a great place for Italian franchise food. I am a custom to the italian from Little Italy in Baltimore. In acoidance of the drive i choose this spot over Olive Garden, Bertuccis or other chain Italian.

Hadn't been to this place in over a year. Nice remodeling done but the service was left wanting. Our server paid so little attention to us, we dropped the tip from 20 to 10%. The food was good, not outstanding. Will return to see if this was an anomaly.

Entered a nearly empty establishment, was told it would be a 10-15 minute wait. There were four other parties waiting. Wasn't informed regarding the delay, however, quickly discerned that they were short-staffed. Upon seating, I was greeted by a very professional and knowledgeable waiter. Ordered one of the Monday promotions. It was good, however, the linguini was over cooked. The... More

The service was great. The three small deal was great. The waiter was very considerate. They had bottled wines 10 dollars cheaper today.

For a chain restaurant, their food is really good. I absolutely love their bread served with good olive oil and herbs. The Italian salad is very fresh and a good portion for a side dish. I had the spiedino mare (wood-grilled shrimp and scallops) which was so tasty - very lightly breaded and seasoned very well. Definitely a go to... More

Our ministry teens were able to practice etiquette skills and feel comfortable doing it. My wife and I enjoy the atmosphere and friendly hosts.

The ambience, server and food were great! We had Alexander and he was simply a delight. He was very professional, personable and cheerful! Restuarants need more staff like him. As always, the food was delicious! I have a special place in my heart for this particular location because my husband actually proposed to me years ago while eating dinner there.... More

This was my first time dining at Carrabbas. Met a dear friend for lunch on an incredibly hot Saturday around 11:30 and the place was practically empty. The basket of fresh, warm bread with olive oil was a welcomed rarity for restaurants these days. I tried the Johnny Rocco salad with all scallops and asked for a few tomatoes and... More
