Went here about a week ago, something has changed. I haven't been there for a long time and it used to be a favorite restaurant of mine, but the food was not as good, service was mediocre, and the overall atmosphere was lacking. One thing I found odd was I ordered the tomato caprese, and when I went to bite... More

Seven people in our group. Almost every one thought the food was too salty. The new Chianti Chicken had sauce that had little flavor except for the salt. The soups were almost inedible because of the salt. The small plates (meat balls and asparagus) were good. The strawberry chicken salad, lasagna, and Parmesan chicken were good. Overall, a mediocre experience... More

We went on a Monday and they were having their Monday specials. I haven't been to a Carrabba's in awhile and it didn't disappoint. I had the Chicken Bryan. Highly recommend it. Our server was very good also.

Had dinner at Carrabba's two nights ago with another couple. We all agreed, regardless of the dish we ordered there was too much pepper. I think someone in the kitchen got carried away and probably should be. I love spicey food but this was over the top. I had chicken and it might as well have been described as blackened... More

We normally enjoy eating here, but it seems their quality control is slipping. Service was fine, had no issues there, it was stuff I wasn't expecting to ever have an issue with, soup and sides. They were luke warm, first the soup came out, one of the other server brought it and left, didn't offer grated cheese, I tried it.... More

We hadn't been to Carrabba's for some time. My wife found a couple of coupons in the paper ($10.00 off when you purchase two entrees) so we decided to try them again. We were amazed at the food, service, atmosphere, value, etc. We liked it so much we visited again tonight just a few days after our first visit. My... More

If you want a delightful engaging waitress, ask for Patricia! Her zany personality added much to the dining experience. The meal was outstanding. Deserts were outstanding as well. This evening out was the highlight of our visit in Mulberry. Highly recommend!

This food is not good if you are on a low sodium or low carb diet. If it doesn't matter then by all means have lunch or dinner there. If you really feel like some pasta and a lot of it, go. I always get a pasta dish so that is all I am able to review. Very nice meals.

Went there for dinner, not having ever been to a Carrabba's before. Because it is up a notch in prices from places like Olive Garden or a Macaroni Grill, I expected it to be better. Nope. The Fried Calamari were greasy, the lasagna was dry, the house salad was sad. I won't ever go back because nothing tasted good there.... More
