I have ate at this place a good half dozen times before finally writing a review. I thought it would improve or I was just getting it on an off night. However, I have yet to be impressed with this place personally. I have some friends who love it, so perhaps it is just what I am looking for in... More

Carrabbas used to be my top choice for dinner dates and special occasions here in Portage, Mi but after our recent experience I think I will be finding another favorite. Apparently they have someone knew running this location and you can definitely tell! A lot of things have changed and they are NOT for the better! They have cut the... More

We visit this Carrabba's several times a year as it is one of my husband's and my favorite restaurants in our town. The food is always great and we always get great service from the staff, and the manager is ALWAYS walking around making sure you meal and service are excellent. He's the type of manager who pitches in when... More

An average chain Italian restaurant, food is OK, but nothing special. Relatively close to I 94, decent parking.

You can count on this location of the franchise to be consistent. I've been here a half dozen times in the last year and the service and food have always been at the same level. Other locations can't seem to cook a pizza but this one can. The young woman we had last week was a very pleasant employee and... More

Fast service. Fettuccine could have used a bit more chicken. Staff was curious and friendly. No wait.

Great atmosphere and so-so food. The prosciutto wrapped pork tenderloins were so overpowered with salt that I couldn't taste the pork medallions. The fettuccini Alfredo was bland with not much sauce. Atmosphere a 4, food a 2+ or 3-.

We had a great lunch here with friends. I had the stuffed meatball. It was really good. The chocolate dessert was amazing! Service very good. We'll return!

Might not be authentic, but it has good flavors. The waitresses are really nice. The food is fresh. Some things on the menu are very good. Don't get the raviolis, they're no good. Better than Olive Garden

Thank lflara
