Alfredo was too sweet and overall I felt as if I were eating in a fast food place. The calamari was too oily and rubbery. I love calamari, but this place put me off it for a while. The selection of pastas is limtied. I...More

Very inconsistent location. It's a chain, so don't expect much, but it can be very good, and it can also be awful. Wait staff is consistently indifferent. The menu changes regularly, and what you ordered once and enjoyed may have been completely redone into something...More

We were a party of 9, and we ordered a wide selection of food. Two of us got the catch of the day -- trout -- and we both thought it was quite good, very fresh tasting. Two others ordered the pork medallions and were...More

Carrabba's is a decent corporate Italian restaurant. Good variety and a kids menu help separate it from other chains. Brie is an outstanding waitress. In the unlikely event a problem arises they work hard to make it right.

For a special experience, try sitting at the bar. You can order a meal there and if you get there during happy hour, discounted drinks and appetizers. The bartenders are friendly and have a following. Allison, Josh and Jenna make the experience friendly and fun...More

We've dined here at this Carrabba's after a few UGA games and usually find this to be a good place to actually get a table. Food is reliably good, though service can be spotty sometimes. Sad the Salmon with Tomato Basil Sauce no longer offered...More

The HH runs from 4pm to 7pm. They have 1/2 price beer, 1/2 price drinks on most drinks, (Weller, Cuervo, eg.) but not Patron or Maker's eg. The appetizers are 1/2 price as well. If you are not seated at the bar, make sure to... More
