This location knows how to do it right! They never miss a beat. We often take anywhere from 4 to 10 people, and have had in the mid 20's, as well. They always do an outstanding job! I had been in food service for 30 years, and these guys deserve kudos for an outstanding job, every time. Never a bad... More

Carrabba's is always a welcome sight. I don't know how the rest of their day had gone, but on the evening of Columbia SC's worst night of existence with record rainfall & flooding, we had a terrific & peaceful meal.

Haven't been to carrabba's in years. New menu change. Honestly not that much that appealed to me but what I chose was really good. Don't remember the name but was pasta with tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, and basil. Good bread as appetizer. Moderate pricing for type of restaurant. Nice outdoor seating. Was a little smelly inside.

I stopped by Carabba's for dinner while in Columbia on business. The hostess greated me right away and was very pleasant. The restaurant seems new because it was clean and in good shape. I chose to sit at the bar because I was by myself. The bar tender was nice but seemed to struggle keeping up. She brought my drink... More

This location is right in the middle of a residential area and there are a dozen hotels within walking distance so they probably get a lot of practice at takeout and it shows. They have perfected the art of packaging takeout. My meal was perfect right down to the sliced bread with olive oil. They get quite busy on Friday... More

First time trying the lasagne at Carrabas and it was just okay. The sauce was good, but the cheeses were a little too rich for me. My wife had the spaghetti which she said as good. The service was a little hit or miss.

This place has good service and food but the deals on their appetizers are amazing! I believe they offer these appetizer specials 7 days week which is fantastic.

Been to many, many Carrabba's from Florida to Massachusetts and this is the first one that couldn't be bothered to do anything to adjust or allow creating your own pasta dish. Been ordering the same two dishes forever and every single other Carraba's, including the one we are at less than two weeks ago made the dish that used to... More

This Carrabba's always has good service and excellent food. Our party chose the Chicken Marsala, Pork Chop Marsala and Chicken Bryan. Everything was well prepared and delicious. My hubby also got a special comp ice cream sundae for his birthday. Meagan was an excellent waitress.

Although it was a rainy Monday afternoon, this turned out to be a great choice for the evening. Our server was prompt to serve our table and was super friendly. The remodel of this restaurant enhanced its appeal and warm inviting atmosphere. The happy hour was great and the beer was cold! Kudos to our waitress for never saying no... More
