We have been going to the area for about 4 years and still love this restaurant. The food, servers and service are super. Happy hour is such a plus. Just a great place to eat and the prices are right too. Wish we had one in our home area.

I have only eaten in the restaurant a couple of times. I find it a bit too noisy and crowded.Usually I place my order online and it is delivered to me outside. It has always been hot, delicious and they have always gotten the order correct and on time. Everything is there, the bread and olive oil, salad etc..My only criticism would be that some of the portions are small. This was the case with the Spiedino de Mare. It was delicious, but not enough. Also ordered the Pasta Sostanza with shrimp added. Only got 4 shrimp for the $5 extra. My favorite dish is the linguini pescatore. I highly recommend this as great treat after a long day at work.

My husband and I had dinner at this Carrabas this past Friday night. We sat by the pasta bar and watched a magnificent show from the chefs cooking the delightful dishes. Like a work of art each dish was carefuly inspected by the manager David. Hubby ordered the filet with scallops and I ordered the linguini with shrimp and lobster. They where both out of this world. Everything is made from scratch--I can't believe the review bashing them that they are a "chain". It is rediculous to even think for a minute that their food is not made to order. It is DELICIOUS! The service was impecable and we had the best Friday night! Lovely! Thank you David for the hospitality! Eleni & Mike Gabriel

My family and I are new to the area and decided to try this restaurant last weekend and we had the most wonderful experience. Our waiter was exceptional, he gave us wonderful menu recommendations and was very personable, our children just loved him. It was so nice to experience a family atmosphere and great food at its best. We will definantly be back and will absolutely ask for Kenny to take care of us again. Thank you

This is a chain resturant, the food is not made as you wait, if you want a great italian resturant, you must go to the place next door, (old world)fresh prepared real italia , there are those that know the difference and those who do not. Being from the north I know and appreciate real italia, of course to some, food is food, also, very overpriced.

The Murrell's Inlet Carrabba's is absolutely the best there is------ anywhere! The food was superbly prepared. The staff is courteous to a fault. We felt like family! David, the proprietor, is super friendly, efficient and customer friendly to say the least. Entire family went. Each ordered different entree. Beef melted in your mouth, Pork Chop meal was excellent! Pasta dishes of course could not be beat! Appetizers and desserts were to die for. Was not a mussel fan but tried them anyway. Unbelievable tender. Wud do them again. Best crab cake I'v ever had ( and I've had many). Obviously wil be going ther w/all out of town guests.

Waiting for frozen food. This was a big disappointment. I'm going to try some other local establishments. I thought the big chains would be consistent and quality minded. They are profit minded and deliver a moderately priced meal that lacks flavor only found in freshly made foods.

Our family has eaten here twice. We've also eaten at two other Carrabbas. This one is by far the best. We all ordered different entrees, and all were delicious. My steak with red wine sauce was scrumptious (I've forgotten the name). We're headed back to Myrtle Beach and you can bet we're going back to Carrabbas.

I am ashamed to say that I considered Carrabbas a 'faux Italian Restaurant' that I would not want to experience...Well, after having dined there on several occasions with friends, I must say the service, super friendly atmosphere, AND outstanding food is a constant. I now look forward to our monthly visits!

In my 50 years of restaurant experiences I must say this was the best experience I've ever had. We come to the area once or twice a year on vacation and the service is unbelievable, and the manager is a class act. When I went and told him how great the service was he was kind, stating they work hard to give all patrons a great experiance. The food was outstanding. We will be back everyone should experience this great restaurant.

I want everyone to know that Carrabbas in Murrells Inlet is an excellent place to eat. The food is prepared fresh daily. They have an excellent staff. Everyone is held to a high standard of cleanliness, and professionalism. I was eating there so often that I decided to get a job there. I've worked there 4 years now. It's also a great place to work!

We went to the Carrabbas close to Myrtle Beach, not the one in Murrells Inlet and the food was outstanding. The service was impeccable. The young lady who served us was very knowledgeable about both the wine and the food, even though she laughingly told us she was a vegetarian.

We started out with the Mussels and were pleasantly surprised at the quantity..........then the taste. Outstanding! We could have made a meal with them alone. We enjoyed the Steak Marsala and the Chicken Marsala. Both were cooked to perfection.

We left there totally full, satisfied and happy with our choice. In fact, that was the best meal we had while on vacation. Well worth every penny.

We just got home and we will definately recommend this restaurant to our friends and family who are going to Myrtle Beach this summer.

After waiting ONE HOUR for our food in Carabbas at White Marsh Maryland, I decided to check with our waitress who cluelessly checked with chef. Aha! Our order was lost and after waiting ANOTHER 20 MINUTES our food finally arrived. To add to insult the apologies were minimal and a FREE DESSERT for our afternoon spent waiting for lunch was offered! NO THANKS! We had already waited 1 hour 20 min for lunch, how long might have dessert taken?????? With hymning and hawing, the manager deducted my meal and a salad from the tab.. Whoopie! This not only prompts me to write the main headQ's, but also NEVER to step through the door of a Carrabba's again! My first and last visit!

I had dinner at this Carrabba's location on January 19, 2008. The service that we received was AWESOME, we were seated promptly, and once seated our waited told us about the specials offered, once we ordered the food was EXCELLENT, from the ceasar salad, to bread, and chicken trio that I had, I could not have made a better choice of place to have dinner.. Will visit this location on my next visit to Myrtle Beach

We've been to Carrabbas in other areas so we were very excited to get one here. The food, service, and atmosphere are always great at any Carrabbas location and this one was no different.

Went to this restaurant back in May 2006 and had a really bad experience. I have eaten at other Carrabbas and had an excellent time. We were seated in the bar area at high tables and several people in our party were hit in the head with platters as waiters tried to carry the food above everyone's head, no apology. Had to wait almost 45 minutes for food order, food was over cooked and cold!! Service staff horrible, we were there during bike week and they were not biker friendly!

I'm surprised to hear all of the complaints. Maybe the locations differ but the one i took my fiance to was excellent. We've been like six or seven times and each time is better than the last.

My husband and I have eaten here on three differenct occasions. All three times, we have experienced hostesses that really could care less if they seat you, waitresses that could care less if they get your order or if you are satisfied with your meal.The three times we have visited this restaurant we had been given a gift certificate, we have asked our friends to please not waste any more of their money.

We had never been to Carrabbas before, but had heard of it before so we decided to try it out. WOW! It was WONDERFUL! It's really cute inside.

The waiter was very friendly and attentive.

The salad was chilled, crispy and fresh. The bread was hot. The main entree was large, hot, and delicious. The chicken in my dish was plentiful and you could really taste that it was grilled and just prepared. My husband loved his dish as well.

We loved it so much we went again a couple days later to the one in Myrtle Beach, ordered two different things and it was just as good. The closest Carrabbas to us here in Michigan is 40 miles away, but our experience sold us.

We will make the trip to eat there again--I just hope they are as good as the two we visited in South Carolina.

We visited this Carrabbas in June of 2005 and were terribly disappointed. The orders were wrong, the food was not cooked properly, and it was not a good experience. We have dined at other Carrabbas restaurants and have enjoyed them tremendously. This restaurant in not on our revisit list.
