Carrabba's Italian Grill Review, Hours of operation and directios to Carrabba's in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Carrabba's - The Murrells Inlet Carrabba's Review, A suburb of Myrtle Beach this restaurant is worth it if you are hungry for good food in this area. Above average quality when compared to other Italian chain restaurants, the caliber of service and food is between 3 and 4 star quality that might not match near four star prices you could pay.
Chain eatery & bar serving a diverse menu of classic Italian fare in a family-friendly setting.|
Full Review: Very nice place to take the family for a special dinner if you live nearby or are in the area. As we were in the mood for some good Italian, driving by their huge parking lot, filled to capacity with cars, we had to give it a try. After about 15 minutes waiting we were seated at a table.
Our waitress, greeted us quickly and was very friendly. We placed our orders and looked around we were seated near the kitchen surrounded by a glass partition. Near the bar seating we got a closer look at the inner workings at Carrabba's, with the cooks in full view.
You can watch your pizzas being hand tossed and placed in the wood fired oven. We chose Italian sausage, olives, mushrooms, bell peppers and sun dried tomatoes for toppings. The olives were typical canned black olives, were not as nice as the better Italian olives we see in more traditional Italian restaurants. They were placed on the pizza whole so they gave the pizza a much bolder flavor than expected. The pizza was about 12" and could be enough for a small lunch for two people.
We had a grilled salmon, with a house salad, and Cavatappi Amatriciana in one order. Another order was Chicken Marsala, with a Caesar salad, also with the Cavatappi Amatriciana.
The Caesar salad had lovely homemade croutons, that were incredible. The Cavatappi Amatriciana is a nice spiral pasta, that is moderately spicy.
The Chicken Marsala and salmon dishes were both cooked on the wood fired grill. It was so tender enough to cut with only a fork.
Everything was served with fresh, hot from the oven Italian bread, and free refills on the beverages. The dining area was festive, but not over-done. Though it was packed full of customers the entire restaurant was spotless in the dining area, kitchen and bathrooms. Several parties were celebrating a birthday, and the serving staff brought out birthday cakes, and sang Happy Birthday in Italian.
The restroom was not only immaculately clean but it was also well decorated. There was lovely ceramic tile, rich woods and plants. Though the speakers in the restaurant offered pleasant music, I was pleasantly surprised to fine they were teaching Italian from the bathrooms speakers.
Our total price was around $50 before the tip, fair enough price but could be outperformed by more traditional family owned Italian restaurants in the Myrtle Beach area.
