We came from Florida where this was one of our favorite places to eat. We came here four years ago and thought we had found another great place. First two years were good and they started playing with some of their signature dishes. The quality of the food and service have declined to the point of no return. Not sure... More

We were visiting from out of town and had a gift card to Carrabbas. We have been to several of them in different cities, so we knew what to expect. This experience was no different from our other ones, everything was great. It was surprisingly busy for a Tuesday evening and we were put on a wait list. They have... More

This is our 2nd visit to Carrabas. Our first experience was curbside take out and it was great. Tonight we took our daughters boyfriend out for his birthday and the food was Terrible. The oversized meatball and chicken Parmesan was burned. I had fettuccini Alfredo and it was not edible, the noodles were so overcooked that they stuck together in... More

This used to be a special treat once a month. That new stuffed meatball was very dry and crumbly. The salad was half the size I used to get. The BOGO pasta dish had a weird bad taste. As always, another of my favorite chain restaurants has taken a dive. Seems most or all of them are using prepackaged foods... More

It was very busy when we went. They have practically no waiting area. Had to wait outside in the dark and cold. Outdoor lighting was burned out so seemed even colder. Entree portions small, expensive and not very tasty. Waitress seemed surprised that we weren't rude and she was pleasant. Other than that, just not a fun experience.

This is our goal to place for family celebrations. Last Sunday we had a great dinner. Two of us enjoyed pasta weenie, pasta in a wonderfully light cheese sauce with shrimp, mushrooms and scallions. Or was perfectly cooked. The salads were fresh and crisp. Two had a fish stew dish with muscles, scallops, clams and shrimp. It smelled and appeared... More

Best Carrabbas ever. Never have a problem and we visit 12 times a year at the least. We love the chicken trio.

We visited on a Saturday night. We arrived about 6:00 pm, maybe a 20 min wait. Not to bad. The service was good and so was the food. We were able to get in, be served and get out in a reasonable time. I had the Chicken Marsala, it was on the mark!

Carrabba's has a good location near the Asheville Airport in a shopping plaza. The service was satisfactory from our server. However, the food was over priced for the portion sizes and the wait was a bit long. There are a wide assortment of seating sections so if you had a preference you might be accommodated. There are other restaurants in... More

Last time I went to Carrabba's was just that, the last time. I went with a large party and I ordered the shrimp and scallops. I got three small shrimp and two small scallops for $24.99. Everybody at my table just laughed when the put my plate in front of me. I'm 6'3" 320 pounds with a linebackers build and... More
