In town for a lacrosse camp and us parents ran out to eat without the kids. I've never been to Carrabbas before so I can't compare, but I had an enjoyable experience. My food was delicious, my drink was as well... Our wait was short,...More

Service here was really, really, really bad. I came here for a business lunch and was excited for some great Italian food. As we arrived at 12:45pm for our lunch meeting we questioned whether they were even open because there were literally only 4 cars...More

Really enjoyed the food and service. Was with a large group and the waiter was outstanding. Loved the Sicilian Chicken soup as a starter and had the Veal Chop. It was large enough for me to take half home and eat it the next day....More

It is okay, but definitely not something to be overly excited about. Had spaghetti and meatballs. The noodles were overcooked, the sauce was runny and the meatballs were bland. Basic chain quality. Not terrible but I would not go back.

Went there on a Wed. night. They had pizza and wine special. Didn't get any wine but my son got a pizza, pretty cheap, and loved it. My seafood was excellent and my wife liked her pasta. Service was great. Didn't give it five stars...More

I've been to a few Carrabba's over the years, and this was the least impressive. Although the service was nice and prompt, the food was really just bland.
