The food is always wonderful, whether it's a special offering or "the usual" menu items. My husband and I usually visit once a week and are always pleased with service and food. Current management is improving operations.

I have been going to Carrabbas for years. Over time, portion size, selection, salads have been on the decline. Today, I found the wine to be pricey for so-so wine. Portion size was diminished and salt was rampant. Not worth i.
