I have eaten here once since diagnosed and I got really sick. I wouldn't trust them again.
I thought the food was fine at best.
Best to avoid. No separate cooking area so cross contamination is a big concern. Not sure why they would state they have a gluten free menu and then warn it's not safe for celiacs.
Not a good choice, everything is cooked on the same grill. The basting sauce they use has gluten in it.
VERY disappointed. I loved Carrabba's when I ate gluten. Now not so much. Waiter didn't know the gluten free menu at all. Had me confused and that doesn't happen very often. I asked for an Italian salad no croutons (because the menu states to ask to have salads made in a fresh bowl and w/o croutons) and no tomatoes. He assumed I wanted a Caesar because I asked for no croutons. He also didn't know that the chicken on the g-free menu came with two prescribed sides - daily mixed veg and garlic mashed potatoes. My mom - not g-free, but allergic to mushrooms - had mushrooms in her pasta after asking that there be no mushroom
I usually order the tuscan grilled chicken with gluten free pasta in olive oil and garlic. So yummy!
Though the food was good, I had the pork tenderloin, it was delicious. Service was very good, BUT, no gluten free beers or ciders (which I have had at other Carrabbas) and no gluten free desserts, not even the vanilla ice cream which is pit on an apple pastry for the gluten friendly customers. Will eat here again, because the good was delicious.
They do have there gluten free food clearly marked on menu. I was a little concerned cause I ordered a salad for an appetizer and said no croutons. It came with croutons. They exchanged it with no issues but that doesn't inspire alot of confidence. After eating my food I was okay. I would try this place again.
I have celiac. 1 contamination after visiting over the course of 3 months, once every 2-3 weeks. Staff less often than not have moderate knowledge, most exercise blind caution. Inform server of allergy and question contents of meals as you would any new place. GF noodles! This location is of lesser quality than the Chesapeake location nearby.
I have celiac. No contamination over 6 month period, visiting every 1-3 weeks. They do not guarantee no contamination, if that is a deal breaker for you. More often than not, the staff were moderately knowledgeable and exercised caution. Food tastes GOOD. Has GF noodle. Inform server of allergy and question contents of every meal like you would any new place.
This was my first time eating here. They have Gluten Free menu and I had no problems with my food. I will return.
https://www.carrabbas.com/menu/under-600-gluten-free This is the link to the gluten free menu. It’s way easier to look here than in the actual menu.
The manager knew about Celiac and I didn’t have any reaction even though I’m very sensitive. I would order through the manager to be safe. They have gluten free pasta and it comes in an unfamiliar shape so you can tell right away which pasta is gluten free! He took my allergy very seriously!
They have a gf icon by all items as well a gf pasta option. I haven’t gotten even a little sick from them so far!
The gluten free options for chicken are fantastic, try the chicken trio with 3 small breasts made different ways with choice of side. They now have gluten free pasta with gluten free alfredo sauce it was fantastic. For an appetizer try the mozzarella caprise, they use fantastic Burrata mozzarella which has cream and grape tomatoes, to die for. This is one of the few places with a wonderful variety of gluten free choices not the same old same old. The chicken trio may not be on the menu but if you ask they will make it for you.
We had dinner here one night as a last minute plan. I have Celiac and am extremely sensitive to cross-contamination, but had no issues here. Our waitress was very helpful and our food was delicious. It was my first trip to any Carrabas and I was skeptical about avoiding cross-contamination at a restaurant that served so much "gluten," but I was very pleasantly surprised.
lots of glutten free options including pasta. after verifying the gf pasta was prepared separately, my daughter ordered some. however it came out as regular pasta. fortunately she questioned it, and the waiter was very apologetic and got her new meal. that could have been a real disaster for us.
We haven't had any issues here (yet). It's always scary for us in these places. But, no issues with mix ups and we've never gotten sick. It's good food, too! Just a little pricey for what you get IMO, but I appreciate having a safe place close to home to go out to eat at!
They have GF items listed on the menu. Just remember to tell them that you need gf and not just ordering an item that is listed as gf to be safe! The gf pasta is really yummy. Some of the best I have had.
There was a rogue crouton tossed with my Caesar salad and under the greens so of course I didn't notice it until I had eaten half of it. Other than that I think the food was good, but I'll probably be sick later from the cross contamination of the salad so it's hard to say. I know it was an accident, but they should have a food prep station further away since they claim to be so gluten friendly. Also, the waitress kept asking me how the free bread was, so I didn't get a great overall impression of their gluten knowledge.
They were very careful with our families order and were very well trained. They understood the need to use a separate pot to boil the GF pasta and a seperate colindar. They also carried out the gf meals separately. There were a lot of options on the menu too. I only wish they had gf bread and desserts.
