Always the best! I have been eating here since they opened and have never had anything but great food. My kids have grown up eating here and as adults they still ask for the pizza dough. You could not ask for greater food or better service. I own a roofing company and we have had many company lunches here also. It is a great place for business or pleasure. Thank You!

Wow, what a great review. One of the most special things about being in business for nearly 29 years is seeing the generations grow up in the restaurant. It's incredible! Thank you for supporting us over the years!

We came here thinking we were going to "a Carrabbas" and was surprised to find out that this one was a bit different. It is more chef driven and a whole lot nicer than the standard Carrabbas. As such the prices follow suit and a higher with smaller portions as well. We ended up enjoying our meals and enjoyed the extremely attentive service that this place provided. We will come back maybe for more of a a splurge date night rather than a normal weekday dinner.

Thank you for joining us, Brian, and we are glad you "stumbled" upon the Original Carrabba's. Please let us know if we can ever do anything for you and give us a call if you are indeed coming in for a special date night.

My experience here was amazing! From the waiter who told us about the history of Carrabba's to the bread and herb spice medley. Simple things, but it mattered a lot to me because it was my first time at this restaurant and I felt that they went above and beyond to accommodate, my friends and I who arrived a little later than expected. They food was brought out quick and it was seasoned pretty well. I had the Linguine Pescatore which was the mixed seafood, but I altered it a bit to only have shrimp.

I once heard that Johnny's mom still goes into this location every morning bright and early to make marinara. True or not, it feels like it. The new location is massive and caters to waitlist full of diners every day, lunch and dinner, yet it still feels like your family. At a restaurant with white tablecloths, mise en place service and $25+ entrees, you expect the service to be formal and polite. Yet, at Carabbas, the servers warm up to you with excitedness, jokes and warm smiles. However, despite the carefree nature, service is impeccable. Oh, and the food isn't half bad either! The only other restaurant that serves lump crab in big ol' chunks is El Tiempo. Seriously, get the stuffed shrimp and tell me you aren't impressed with the amount of jumbo lump crab for the price. Also, I swear they make the best Osso Buco I have ever had. Ever! Tip: for dinner, ask to sit at the pasta bar and watch the saute chefs instead of dealing with the wait for a table.

I just wanted to say that every week I go to this location for take out lunch. I love Vidal, the to go server. He has the warmest spirit and the friendliest attitude. I wish more customer service individuals would take as much pride in their position as he does. I come back for the good food but truth be told its Fidel that makes it GREAT!

Love the food, staff and everything they have to offer. Best of the best is on Kirby. Quail is a favorite dinner meal, you need to try it soon. Quality in all aspects of food.

I'm absolutely shocked this restaurant doesn't have a straight 5 star rating! If you have been to Carrabba's, but not this one or the one on Voss, you have never been to a Carrabba's. Those are the only two still owned by the family and although the menu is the same, the restaurants are entirely different. They are only affiliated in name, you can't even use gift cards interchangeably (I found this out the hard way). Everything is good, but my favorite by far is the Veal Picatta. If you're not adverse to eating a baby cow, you will love it.
